Abstract
In this paper we present the design concepts and data modeling approach that was used to define a
general application framework for storing hypermedia documents in the object-oriented data-
base management system VODAK. We exploit the capabilities of the VODAK data model to
introduce new hypermedia modeling primitives at the meta level. We show that representing the
hypermedia semantics within the DBMS in this way is clearly advantageous for efficiency of the
