The conventional RDBMS is extended with new functionalities of storing and manipulating data in the form of objects. We mention that type RDBMS as ORDBMS.
The RDBMS combines its conventional capabilities such as,

  • Secondary storage management
  • Schema management
  • Concurrency control
  • Transaction management, recovery
  • Query processing
  • Access authorization and control, safety, security
with the capabilities of object oriented programming such as,

  • Complex objects
  • Object identities
