It it called MaxDB now, and it is a normal SQL-based RDBMS, not an OO database.
In 1997 SAP bought the Adabas-D product from Software AG and renamed it into SAP DB.
Adabas-D in turn was based on a combined research project between Nixdorf Computer and the Technical University of Berlin, started in 1977.

The MySQL engine is also based on MaxDB.
