Abstract

In this paper we discuss implementation aspects of how to map object-oriented concepts into relational concepts to achieve both, flexibility and efficiency, at the same time. Our past experience shows that such a mapping should not be fixed, but should be flexible for different reasons [Wal86], [B*86b]. On the other hand to ensure an efficient evaluation of requests on the object level, the mapping onto the relational level should not involve any major overhead. We argue that methods of meta-compilation provide an adequate basis for achieving both goals simultaneously [SS86]. In particular, we argue that these techniques are easily implementable in a logic programming environment.
