  Process control systems are primarily designed to handle online real-time data. But once the system has to be maintained over years of continuous operation, the aspects of asset management (e.g., spare parts) and reengineering (e.g., loading process computers and field bus processors with consistent data after modification of instrumentation) become more and more important. One way to get the necessary information is data mining in the running system. The other possibility is to collect all relevant information in a database from the beginning and build up configuration files from there. For the cryogenic systems in the XFEL, the planned x-ray free electron laser facility at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, EPICS will be used as the process control software. This talk will present the status of the development of our device database, which is to hold the offline data. We have chosen an approach representing the instrumentation and field bus components as objects in Java. The objects are made persistent in an Oracle database using Hibernate. The user interface will be implemented as a plugin to the control system studio CSS based on Eclipse.
