Object-Orientation FAQ

APPENDIX B OBJECT-ORIENTED DATABASES AND VENDORS

This is a list of available Object-Oriented databases.  Thanks go to Stewart
Clamen, who's survey on schema evolution provided a good start.  Additional
short entries are encouraged; please send additions to the author of the FAQ
(and/or to Stewart).
The most recent copy of Stewart Clamen's summary on available databases
support for schema evolution will be available indefinitely via anonymous
FTP from BYRON.SP.CS.CMU.EDU:/usr/anon/OODBMS/evolution-summary.
[Kim 89] covers a few of the research systems below in depth.
Starred entries also have an entry in "APPENDIX E  ANONYMOUS FTP SITES".
