A relational database is structure to recognize relations among information, and stores the information in tables. An object-oriented database focuses on presenting the information in the form of objects, to be used for object-oriented programming. Object-relational databases are a hybrid of the two, keeping relations stored but still keeping the object-type data. Relational databases are best for presentation of the data itself, while object-oriented databases are better for deriving new information from given information.
