We argue that a fully object-oriented database management system is a very suitable basis of every modern CASE environment. We describe how the features provided by an OODBMS are exploited to build a CASE tool or environment. We discuss especially problems concerning inter-document consistency constraints and multi-user support. We finally sketch the features which are still missing in OODBMSs.
