The traditional approach to database-management-system (DBMS) designs focuses upon the implementation of a single data model and its corresponding data language in order to support applications for a given database task. Each of these monomodel and monolingual database systems represents a homogeneous database system, since only one data language model can be supported on a single database system. The application diversity forces many organizations to operate several different homogenous database systems to support its operations. A different approach to database-system design is the development of a DBMS which supports multiple data models and their data languages. This approach is the focus of the multimodel and multilingual database system (MM&MLDS) as implemented on the Multibackend Database Supercomputer (MDBS). With the proliferation of new data model-languages in the database technology, the objective of MM&MFDS is to incorporate these new data model-languages onto the same MDBS. The goal of this thesis is to develop procedures methods and tools for the incorporation of new data model-languages onto MM&MLDS as new interfaces. three areas of research are critical to achieving this goal. First, the development of a MDBS user's manual for familiarization as well as instruction for system users. Second, the specification of generic processing algorithms used as a foundation for each module of the new model-language interface. Third, our software methodology considerations for new data model-language interface implementation.
