ORDBMS: Object-Relational Database Management System
Object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) is a relational database management system that allows developers to integrate the database with their own custom data types and methods. Whereas RDBMS or SQL-DBMS products focused on the efficient management of data drawn from a limited set of data types (defined by the relevant language standards), an object-relational DBMS allows software developers to integrate their own types and the methods that apply to them into the DBMS. The goal of ORDBMS technology is to allow developers to raise the level of abstraction at which they view the problem domain.
