Abstract

We present the OMAR methodology that allows to provide automatic support for the generation of RDBMS based applications from object oriented specifications. We use inference mechanisms exploiting the data structuring information and the dynamic models produced during the object oriented modeling phases to infer an appropriate relational data schema and the associated manipulation mechanisms. Thus, a designer still benefits from the advantages offered by the object oriented paradigm and receives automated support for the generation of the final relational application.
