Paper Abstract

The ISO STEP specifications aim to provide an effective means by which product information can be shared and exchanged between applications and enterprises. EXPRESS is a modeling language within the STEP specifications. It is used to describe product data. An EXPRESS model can be implemented on a database repository, queried upon and manipulated. This paper examines the suitability of object-oriented database systems as the repository for EXPRESS models. It then discusses the design and implementation of a translator which converts the EXPRESS language into constructs suited to object-oriented database systems.
