The graphical representation of object-oriented database (OODB) schemas is useful for The designers and users of a database system. The aim of our project was to enhance the existing version of OOdini, an interactive graphical tool for editing OODB schema. The new features include interactive modification and description of objects in the schema. Data structures for representing classes and attributes have been altered to incorporate object/data types as well as a descriptive string. The software has been implemented using ObjectMaker, a toolkit to design your own methodology using the ObjectMaker Extension Language.
