This isn't a book about the Object Data Standard; it's the complete, fully authoritative version of the standard itself, presented by the researchers who developed it. This book provides all the details comprising ODMG 3.0, making the latest version of the specification the most mature and most flexible yet.
When it comes to storing objects in databases, ODMG 3.0 is a standard with which you need to be familiar-whether you design, develop, or implement object database products, object-to-relational database mapping products, or applications based on these products.
