Object Gateway is a modeling, mapping and code generation tool that lets you look at existing relational data in Oracle, Sybase and other servers as if they are object oriented. It is a 100% client-resident and runs on Microsoft Windows platforms. Schema Genie, the design time component of Object Gateway, lets you design an ODMG-style object model for your SQL database. Once the model is designed, you can generate a variety of language interfaces for it (C++, C, OLE Automation and Visual Basic are currently supported). Object Engine is the run-time component of the system and it implements the object data model by supporting features such as activation and deactivation of objects, complex object assembly, inheritance, relationships and cache management. Object Browser is a component of the system that lets you browse through and manipulate data based on the object model that you defined. The central tenet of Object Gateway is that inside every complex relational database, there is an object model waiting to get out. Such a model reduces the abstraction level mismatch between modern, object oriented client tools and SQL servers. Automatic generation of an object oriented data access layer eliminates the need for programmers to hand-craft code to do the same.
