[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Different from Relational DBMS (RDBMS), Object-Oriented DBMS (ODBMS) stores objects rather than simple data types. Since it is capable of handling image, graphics, and audio/video data elegantly, the ODBMS market has expanded beyond the engineering arena. More importantly, ODBMS provides transparent bindings to object-oriented languages such as C++ and Smalltalk, rather than forces a single query lagnuage (i.e. SQL) as its interface. This helps in building reusable, component-based, mission-critical, software systems.

For some practical reasons, many available ODBMSs are hybrid systems, or object-relational DBMSs. However, these systems are able to handle complex data types equally well.
