What is a repository - 11-03-2004 , 10:44 PM
I am fairly new to RDB. Can someone tell me what a repository is?
There seem to be a lot of references to this in Oracle's RDB docs.
Also which is the best way to get started off with RDB - I mean which
book from Oracle should I refer to?

In Oracle Rdb documentation "repository" is usually referring to the
CDD/Repository product. It provides data dictionary functionality and
many more capabilities to provide storage, definitions and coordination
for Software Engineering Tools, Programming Tools and 4GLs such as
Datatrieve. Repository in this context directly refers to a class of
CASE Tool extending the Data Dictionary concept within the domain of
