Recent research efforts have focused on how to use state of the art objected-oriented data models to support this multidatabases integration effort. This is the first practical and usable book on the subject. Although the emphasis in Object-Oriented Multidatabase Systems is on the integration of database systems, approaches that integrate other types of distributed systems are also included. The book is unique in its recognition and analysis of the issues involved at all levels of the integration process. Its breadth and depth make it an essential reference for all database and distributed system professionals, researchers, and students.
