The purpose of the Starburst project is to improve the design of relational database management systems and enhance their performance, while building an extensible system to better support nontraditional applications and to serve as a testbed for future improvements in database technology. The design and implementation of the Starburst system to date are considered. Some key design decisions and how they affect the goal of improved structure and performance are examined. How well the goal of extensibility has been met is examined: what aspects of the system are extensible, how extensions can be done, and how easy it is to add extensions. Some actual extensions to the system, including the experiences of the first real customizers, are discussed
