What is an ORDBMS?

ORDBMS stands for Object-Relational Database Management System.

An ORDBMS is a database management system that is a hybrid between the object-oriented model (OODBMS) and the relational model (RDBMS).

Each of those two models has their strengths and weaknesses. By combining the two models, a DBMS can take advantage of various strengths from each model.

ORDBMS Examples

Examples of ORDBMSs include:

Note that, some of these systems can also be classified as simply RDBMS. The number of ORDBMS attributes varies between these systems, however, their vendors all claim that they are ORDBMS.
