This paper introduces query mechanisms that allow automotive control-systems (using a distributed real-time database management system (RTDBMS)) to be queried, monitored and stimulated during
COMET : a COMponent-based Embedded real-Time database �
The concept of the tailorable embedded real-time database called COMET is introduced, which designs a database to be tailorable, and at the same time satisfy realtime (temporal) requirements and minimal resource (space) requirements of an embedded and a real- time system.
Efficient Execution of Small (Single-Tuple) Transactions in Main-Memory Databases
This paper proposes a new approach to handle single-tuple transactions in main-memory systems with real-time requirements, and shows that 70 - 150% more transactions can be executed while keeping response times low using the new approach.
Data Management in Component-Based Embedded Real-Time Systems
This work proposes to integrate a real-time databasemanagement system into the basic software of the AUTOSAR component model, and uses state-of-the-art database pointer techniques to achieve predictabletiming, and database proxies to maintain component encapsulation and independence of data-management strategy.
Principles for Distributed Databases in Telecom Environment
This thesis makes the use of mixed method approach to meet its objective and shows a substantial decrease in the response time due to the fragmentation and distribution of centralized and fragmented/distributed databases.
Efficient Commit Processing in High- Availability Main-Memory Databases
The focus of this work is how to improve the performance of main-memory primary-backup systems by looking at the execution of transactions and commit protocols, and a 50% increase in throughput and a reduction in transaction response time are achieveable compared to state-of-the-art protocols.
Design Issues of an Efficient Distributed Database Scheduler for Telecom
A light-weight optimistic concurrency control (OCC-light) scheduler has been designed, and it turns out that the scheduler overhead, rather than the concurrency is the most important factor in database performance.
A storage scheme for the real-time database supporting the on-line commitment
In this paper, a storage scheme of the data in the real-time database is proposed that helps the real -time database support its on-line commitment, during which real- time service is still available.
Embedded Databases for Embedded Real-Time Systems: A Component-Based Approach1
This report considers integration of a modern software engineering technique, component-based software engineering, for developing embedded databases for embedded real-time systems, and finds that there is a need for a more generic embedded database that can be tailored, such that the application designer can get an optimized database for a specific type of an application.
Database Proxies: A Data Management approach for Component-Based Real-Time Systems
A design-time data entity approach is proposed, where the importance of data in the system is elevated to be included in the entire design phase with proper documentation, properties, dependencies and analysis methods to increase the overall system knowledge.


Real-Time Databases in Telecommunications
This research presents a meta-modelling architecture that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and therefore expensive and expensive process of manually cataloging and updating databases.
An Experimental Real-Time Object-Oriented Database Architecture for Intelligent Networks
An experimental real-time object-oriented database architecture that can be integrated with teleoperator’s service provision architecture is presented.
Transaction Processing in the RODAIN Real-Time Database System
The performance, reliability, and availability requirements of data access operations are hard, and the allowed down-time is only a few seconds in a year.
CORBA access to telecommunications databases
The Telecommunications Task Force of OMG is actively working towards CORBA-based solutions, which will be the basis for the next generation of telecommunications software.
Towards Real-Time Performance in a Scalable, Continuously Available Telecom DBMS
The architecture of ClustRa is described, its real-time features and a performace evaluation are described and a performance evaluation is described.
Design Issues in Database Systems for Telecommunication Services
This work examines the design issues of real-time transaction processing in database architectures that can be integrated with teleoperator's service provision architecture and outlines how real- time features can be incorporated into the industrial object database standard called ODMG-93 and how the OMG Object Request Broker can be exploited in the future IN architectures.
SIGMOD challenges paper
Computer systems used behind the scenes in many parts of the telecommunications network to ensure its efficient and trouble-free operation are described.
The ClustRa Telecom Database: High Availability, High Throughput, and Real-Time Response
An overview of ClustRa is given and a set of performance measurements are included to meet the throughput and real-time response requirements of the telecom database prototype developed to run on standard workstations interconnected by an ATM switch.
Evaluation of Database Architectures for Intelligent Networks
This work examines database architectures that can be integrated into teleoperators' service provision architectures and evaluates the feasibility of approaches based on the ITU-T Recommendations in the X.500 Series and on the industrial standards called ODMG-93 Standard and the Object Model of OMG.
Database usage and requirements in intelligent networks
This paper examines database needs for call control, service switching, special resources, service data, and service management in SDF and SMF and draws a conclusion that it is possible to fulfill the requirements and that SDF can share the same database architecture if compromises are made.
