GOOD is an acronym, standing for Graph-Oriented Object Database. GOOD is being developed as a joint research effort of Indiana University and the University of Antwerp. The main thrust behind the project is to indicate general concepts that are fundamental to any graph-oriented database user-interface. GOOD does not restrict its attention to well-considered topics such as ad-hoc query facilities, but wants to cover the full spectrum of database manipulations. The idea of graph-pattern matching as a uniform object manipulation primitive offers a uniform framework in which this can be accomplished.
