Full text available as:
The aim of the research outlined in this thesis is to establish what type of interface would be most suitable for object oriented databases. In particular it examines how graphical interface technologies might be used to present the database in a clearer form.
In support of the research, a prototype interface system has also been developed to a commercial database to illustrate the practicality of the development of such an interface, and the increased effectiveness of the resultant system.
The thesis outlines the features provided by the interface, the benefits accrued from such a system, and the problems associated with its development.
Finally, it examines how such a system fits into the current work being carried out in the area of user interaction with databases.
