Collaboration: This homework could be discussed with other students, but the actual homework product should be turned in separately as prepared by each individual student.
You can use your own questions around which to center your critique; but do look at our course website for suggested general questions or topics a critique should typically cover.
Specific questions for this readings that would make sense to focus on include: (a) what are the main features that OODBs offer over relational databases? (b) what are the pros and cons of pure relational DB versus Db's with object support?, and (c) what are the pros and cons of object-relational versus OO-database systems?
