Visual queries based on schema graphs simplify the access to databases for technical and non-technical users who are not familiar with the database structure and don't want to use a formal language. We propose an assisting visual query interface for object-oriented databases called O2Talk. The work is motivated by the successful adaptation of the visual query paradigm in the conventional database area.
