<p>A model of a complex object is presented and a set of meaningful operations, both basic and advanced, on a single complex object and on a configuration of complex objects is defined. A set of requirements is presented for storage subsystems that support complex objects. Implementation of complex objects and operations on a single complex object are described, and a detailed performance analysis is provided which establishes the merit of complex objects. Finally, storage techniques are proposed for supporting advanced operations on a configuration of complex objects.</p>
