Object-oriented databases are emerging as a newgeneration database technology for complex applications. In this paper, we present an active distributed object-oriented (ADO) database model, which can capture not only passive behaviors but also active behaviors of complex objects. Besides, the distribution nature of objects can be reflected from within the model as well. Based on the model, we have developed a prototype active distributed object-oriented database management system, and applied it to a housing property management application.
