DAPLEX is a database language which incorporates:
  1. a formulation of data in terms of entities;
  2. a functional representation for both actual and virtual data relationships;
  3. a rich collection of language constructs for expressing entity selection criteria;
  4. a notion of subtype/supertype relationships among entity types.
This paper presents and motivates the DAPLEX language and the underlying data model on which it is based.
