Process-centered software engineering environments, such as Arcadia, impose a variety of requirements on database technology that to date have not been well supported by available object-oriented databases. Some of these requirements include multi-language access and sharing, support for independent relations, and support for triggers. Triton is an object-oriented database management system designed to support theArcadia software engineering environment. It can be used as a general purpose DBMS, although it has specialized features to support the software process capabilities in Arcadia in the form of the APPL/A [Sut90] language. Triton was developed as prototype to explore the requirements for software environments and to provide prototypical solutions. By making these requirements known it is hoped that better solutions will eventually be provided by the database community.
