Distributed systems require declarative access to diverse information sources. One approach to solving this heterogeneous distributed database problem is based on mediator architectures. In these architectures, mediators accept queries from users, process them with respect to wrappers, and return answers. Wrapper provide access to underlying sources. To(More)
This paper presents and analyzes algorithms for computing joins and semijoins of relations in a multiprocessor database machine. First, a model of the multiprocessor architecture is described, incorporating parameters defining I/O, CPU, and message transmission times that permit calculation of the execution times of these algorithms. Then, three join(More)
The current abundance and complexity of P2P architectures makes it extremely difficult to assess their performance. P2PTester is the first tool devised to interface with, and measure the performance of, existing P2P data management platforms. We isolate basic components present in current P2P platforms, and insert "hooks" for P2PTester to capture, analyze(More)
XML has emerged as the leading language for representing and exchanging data not only on the Web, but also in general in the enterprise. XQuery is emerging as the standard query language for XML. Thus, tools are required to mediate between XML queries and heterogeneous data sources to integrate data in XML. This paper presents the e-XMLMedia mediator, a(More)
Several federated database systems have been built in the past using the relational or the object model as federating model. This paper gives an overview of the XMLMedia system, a federated database system mediator using XML as federating model, built in the Esprit Project MIRO-Web. The system is composed of four main components: a wrapper generator using(More)
