An association of professional diving clubs has decided to move their historic diving competition records from a simple spreadsheet into a more sophisticated electronic database solution. Future diving competition results will be entered directly into the new database. The association wishes the new database to accomodate data from affiliated non-diving groups such as swimming clubs. Furthermore, in an effort to more readily share their data with a variety of external organisations worldwide, the association plans to expose their database to the web via a secure API. Consultants hired to implement an appropriate solution for the diving association have differing views - while some suggest a relational database solution, others recommend an object-oriented one.
Evaluate the use of an object-oriented database as opposed to a relational database for handling the association's data management requirements.
