Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"This presentation describes a new workflow model and its implementation in Smalltalk. It also details problems with using a relational database management system (RDBMS) as the persistent store for the workflow tool and the subsequent experiences in using an object database management system (ODBMS) for this purpose. The final solution is a coexistence approach, using the RDBMS for legacy corporate data and the ODBMS for the process description and workflow status data."
