Multimedia database technology

Distributed Multimedia Database Management Systems (DBMS) should support language-independent storage of multimedia data as they will need to interface to different languages eg. the Object Management Group's CORBA or Xerox Parc's Inter-Language Unification project.

The Inter-Language Unification system (ILU) is a multi-language object interface system. The object interfaces provided by ILU hide implementation distinctions between different languages, between different address spaces, and between operating system types.

ILU can be used to build multi-lingual object-oriented libraries ("class libraries") with well-specified language-independent interfaces. It can also be used to implement distributed systems and to define and document interfaces between the modules of non-distributed programs. ILU interfaces can be specified in either the OMG's CORBA Interface Definition Language (OMG IDL), or ILU's Interface Specification Language (ISL).
