Although Object-Oriented Database Managemen-t Systems provide a direct mapping between problem domain and the way data are stored, they are not yet as popular as Relational Database Management Systems. Storing objects in a relational database requires fitting them into tables. In this paper, a straightforward methodology for producing a Relational Database schema from an Object-Oriented Design is presented. The proposed approach provides a solution for mapping all object oriented constructions to tables. The strongest features of the approach are that it yield-s normalized schemata and can be easily automated. Finally, a high-level algorithm and a very simple example to illustrate the approach and its benefits, are given.
