Objects and Relational Databases

Ben Carlyle has been rusing recently about Object-Orientation and Relational (or at least SQL) databases. I suggested that some background reading on some of the theory supporting the two worlds might be useful. As he didn't have pen and paper handy I'm blogging it.

For OO, Actor theory and the Pi-Calculus: Robin Milner, Communicating and Mobile Systems: the Pi-Calculus and Robin Milner, The Polyadic pi-Calculus: a Tutorial (1991)

For Relational Theory: Chris Date, Introduction to Database Systems, Eighth Edition and Chris Date, The Third Manifesto (1995).
