Object-relational database technology emerged as a way of enhancing object-oriented features in relational database management systems (RDBMSs). In response to this evolutionary change, the author has incorporated the technology into her advanced database course. This paper presents a teaching case on using UML (Unified Modeling Language) for object-relational database (ORDB) design and its implementation with Oracle. Course organization, course content, class activities, and impacts on the students' learning outcomes are discussed. The paper is intended to provide a guide for database instructors who desire to incorporate object-relational technology and design in their traditional database courses.
