[REBOL] Re: REBOL Relational Object-oriented Database

From: philb:upnaway at: 22-Jun-2001 16:21

Hi Loius, The term database is usually meant to be more than 1 table, which is what confused me about your question. For example I have used an oracle database that consists of hundreds of tables. Cant remember the exact definition of Relaional but I think we get the idea of what you were talking about. I agree with your definition of Object Oriented. Cheers Phil -- Original Message -- Graham, What I think one is (at least what I meant when I wrote that title): Relational = having two or more databases joined together by a key field (or fields) so that the proper data can be pulled from the two (or more) databases as though they were one. Object-oriented=the concept of bundling data and functions together in a container called an object so that the code can be easily reused (and extended) and so that two different objects may contain symbols that contain identical names with conflict. I am not a professional programmer. If I am wrong please let me know. Louis At 03:48 PM 6/22/2001 +1200, you wrote:
