OBJECT NORMALIZATION AS THE CONTRIBUTION TO THE AREA OF FORMAL METHODS OF OBJECT-ORIENTED DATABASE DESIGN

Jan Vraný, Zdeněk Struska, Vojtěch Merunka

Abstract

In the article there is described an overview of current status in the area of formal technique of object database design. It is discussed there, why relational design techniques as normalization, decomposition and synthesis are not able to be easy used in object databases. The article informs with various proposals of object normal forms and it brings own authors evaluation and an example of object normalization.
