The objective of the project HyperStorM ('Hyperme-
dia Document Storage and Modeling') is to use objec~-
oriented database technology to administer structured
documents like SGML- and HyTime-documents. It 1s an
asset of formats such as SGML to allow for the seam-
!ess integration of metainformation, HyTime provides
a set of archi~ectural forms, i.e., templates with a pre-
define semantics to be used in hypermedia documents
for scheduling or hyperlinking. to give examples.
Requirements. We have identified the following re-
quirements in the context of structured document stor-
age: the database application has to administer docu-

t~ons ( DTDs) With regard to declarative access, it
must be possible to formulate queries in a more pre-
