Attached is the detailed description of the design and implementation of graphical image persistence and code generation for object oriented databases. Graphical image persistent is incorporated into a graphics editor called OODINI. OODINI creates and manipulates graphical schemas for object-oriented databases. This graphical image on secondary storage is then translated into an abstract, generic code for dual model databases. This abstract code, DAL can then be converted into different dual model database languages. We provide an example by generating code for the VODAK Data Modeling language. It is also possible to generate a different abstract language code, OODAL from a graphical schema. This language does not have any dual model database architectural dependencies.
