<p>It is shown, in the context of an actual prototype VLSI CAD framework called Cbase, how concepts such as data abstraction, property and operation inheritance, object specialization/generalization, code reusability, and polymorphism offered by object-oriented database management systems (OODBMSs) support rapid prototyping. The work was conducted on Vbase, a commercially available OODBMS, but the results and conclusions apply to any database with comparable capabilities. To implement the prototype user interface, the X11 toolkit, a windowing package that is also built around the object paradigm, was used.</p>
