In Chapter II, we discussed the different features available in Oracle™ that can be used to implement an object-oriented model. We will use those features in this chapter. The discussion in this chapter will be categorized based on the relationship types. There are three distinct relationship types that we have to consider in object-oriented modeling for implementation in object-relational databases: inheritance, association, and aggregation. Some manipulations will be needed in order to accommodate the features of these relationships.
