VIRTUAL MUSEUM – AN IMPLEMENTATION OF A MULTIMEDIA OBJECT-ORIENTED DATABASE

Rodrigo Filev Maia, Jorge Rady Almeida Junior

Abstract

This paper describes the main characteristics involved in the process of using multimedia content in the Internet sites and it presents a proposal for an implementation of an object-oriented database, in order to assist the multimedia data exigency in a dynamic website. It is described an implementation of the proposed architecture, consisting of a virtual museum made for the Contemporary Art Museum of the USP, called Virtual MAC, which was elected as the 3rd best virtual museum of the world by INFOLAC Web 2005 (UNESCO) . The main objective of Virtual MAC is to create a virtual collection of works at art and make it available on Internet. Our analysis shows that it is more appropriate to use the Object Oriented paradigm instead of Relational Modelling due to the nature of the multimedia data and the structure of the dynamic web site used for the Virtual MAC.
