D. Duellmann (CERN IT/DB & LCG POOL PROJECT)
The LCG POOL project is now entering the third year of active development. The basic functionality of the project is provided but some functional extensions will move into the POOL system this year. This presentation will give a summary of the main functionality provided by POOL, which used in physics productions today. We will then present the design and implementation of the main new interfaces and components planned such as the POOL RDBMS abstraction layer and the RDBMS based Storage Manager back- end.
