Information systems in today’s manufacturing enterprises are distributed. Data exchange and share can be performed by computer network systems. Enterprises are performing operations globally and e-manufacturing enterprises not only obtain online information but also organize production activities. The present manufacturing scenario demands the communication among different CAD/CAM/CAE systems usually involves a huge amount ofdata, different formats, and proprietary platforms. To deal with such difficulties, the tool we need must be equipped with the some feature like platform independency. To full fill this, we developed an object oriented database tool to retrieve and store the GEOMETRY model data from a STEP file using JAVA. This tool operates around a model that uses a well-defined configuration management strategy to manage and storage of GEOMETRY data.
