If Codd used the word glue I imagine it might have been as a synonym for coherence, which I could buy if I knew his context.

Based on previous visits, one of the two university libraries here sucks. I was only having fun with the word - made me think of databases held together with post-its, paper clips and binder twine (which some probably are), if somebody thinks it's important, maybe there should be a thread titled "Where's the glue?"! But maybe that's a better question for an OO group!
