Later, as use of RDBMS became more widespread, the complexity associated with design of a RDBMS was also well documented ... The associative database model is claimed to offer advantages over RDBMS ... “two fundamental data structures” as “„Items‟ and a set of „Links‟ that connect them together ... Items, which have "a unique identifier, a name and a type” and Links, which have “a unique identifier, together with the unique identifiers of three other things, that represent the source, verb and target of a fact that is recorded about the source in the database ... “each of the three things identified by the source, verb and target may each be either a link or an item.”2.
