The OODBMS/DBMS ODABA is an terminology-oriented database management system (TODBMS) on a high conceptual level. This is an extension of the ODBMS concept according to ODMG 3. It provides a number of enhanced features based on natural language analysis. Beside the database kernel, a number of tools are provided for database design, documentation, and fast development. ODABA provides a powerful interface (C++, .NET) and an ODABA Script Interface (OSI), a C++/JAVA like scripting language, which provides easy access to the database.

Release Notes: ODABA and the ODABAGUI API were extended in order to support practical requirements resulting from customer project development. OSI functionality was also extended. Additional service classes were provided for Email and configuration file support. Hierarchical configuration files may now be provided in ini or XML format. Default login handlers and procedures have been provided for batch and GUI applications. Tree behavior was improved and several minor features were added.
Release Notes: Extension attributes have been introduced, which allow extending data types at run-time by transient attributes. In addition, ad-hoc ordering for persistent collections based on persistent, transient, and extension attributes is supported. Create new project support has been improved essentially by generating appropriate command files for running ODE tools and Sample procedures. Several improvements have been made for schema version support, including schema version reset. Several minor improvements have been made for OSI and ODE tools, and several bugs have been removed.
Release Notes: OShell and OSI debugger have been improved. Debugger functionality has been extended to support stack frame functions. Error handling has been improved, and debug commands were made more similar to GDB debugger commands. Setting of breakpoints on demand has been improved by enabling or disabling break points in any function. A load command allows OSI functions to be updated at run-time after being changed. ClassEditor provides better support for checking OSI functions. Several minor improvements have been made for ODE tools. Moreover, several bugs have been removed.
Release Notes: Binary data blocks stored in BLOB properties are now supported in the database and in the GUI framework. ODABA and ODABA-GUI interfaces have been extended to support image resources. Fixed text translation features have been provided as application resources and by ClassEditor (an ODE tool). The notice system has been released, which allows attaching notices to most development resources. Several minor improvements have been made for ODE tools. A pre-release for a MAC OS installation is included in the installation.
Release Notes: With ODABA 12.1.1, a final stable release for ODABA 12.1 has been provided. Some features have been improved, and reported bugs have been fixed. The OSI interface has been expanded by supporting file access and special system functions. Several nice features have been added to ODE tools (ClassEditor and Designer). New control styles have been released for calendars and number presentations. Generic functions for running actions and setting filters at runtime have been added to the GUI framework.
