With the increasing popularity of WWW, the main challenge in computer science has become content-based retrieval of multimedia objects. Until now access of multimedia objects in databases was done by means of keywords. Now, with the integration of feature-detection algorithms in database systems software, content-based retrieval can be fully integrated with query processing. In this paper, we describe our experimentation platform under development that fully integrates traditional query processing and content-based retrieval and that is based on feature databases, making database technology available to multimedia.
