Abstract
In document management systems it is desirable to pro-
vide content-based access to documents going beyond regu-
lar expression search in addition to access based on struc-
tural characteristics or associated attributes. We present a
new approach for coupling OODBMSs (Object Oriented
Database Management Systems) and IRSs (Information Re-
trieval Systems) that provides enhanced flexibility and func-
tionality as compared to coupling approaches reported from
the literature. Our approach allows to decide freely to
which document collections, that are used as retrieval con-
text, document objects belong, which text contents they pro-
vide for retrieval and how they derive their associated re-
trieval values, either directly from the retrieval machine or
from the values of related objects. Especially, we show how
