PROM (Pseudo-Relational Object Model)

The PROM is a database model implemented on top of a standard database. PROM's main goal is to facilitate schema changes, without affecting existing software that uses the database or the existing stored data.

This is achieved by storing the relations in a set of database tables and enforcing these relations through an external API rather than querying the database directly.
