A Query Processing Model for Mobile Computing using Concept Hierarchies and Summary Databases

  title={A Query Processing Model for Mobile Computing using Concept Hierarchies and Summary Databases},
  author={Sanjay Kumar Madria and Mukesh K. Mohania and John F. Roddick},
We present a query-processing model for mobile computing using summary databases (database stored in some predefined condensed form). We use concept hierarchies to generate summary databases from the main database in various ways. Traditional database management systems are correct in that they are able to provide answers to queries that are both sound and complete with respect to the source data. In a mobile environment, it may be advantageous to relax one or other of these criteria to enhance… 
Summarisation for Mobile Databases
This paper surveys summarisation techniques used for mobile distributed databases, and surveys the manner in which database functionality is maintained in mobile database systems, including query processing, data replication, concurrency control, transaction support and system recovery.
Evaluating the Query for a Mobile Database System through Dongle Transaction Model
The objective of this paper is to discuss the about the evaluation of the query for a mobile database system through the Dongle Transaction Model and the Mobile Transaction Testing and Query is measured and analysed.
Comparative Study of Query Processing Architectures in Mobile Environment
This paper proposes comparative study of query processing based different architectures for exploring the mobile computing environment and to study various parameters related to different architectures of queryprocessing in the mobile environment.
Data caching and query processing in MANETs
Theoretical analysis and experiment results show that the proposed group‐caching based query processing and the cost based join strategy are efficient in MANETs and is suitable for the mobility, the disconnection and the multi‐hop features of MANets.
Approximate Query Processing in Spatial Databases Using Raster Signatures
The precision of the query could be lessened, and an approximate answer could be returned, provided that it is much faster than the exact query processing and it has an acceptable accuracy.
Caching remote data in local storage of a mobile client has been considered an effective solution to improve system performance for data management in mobile computing applications. In this paper, we

Summarisation for Mobile Databases1


Continuous queries over append-only databases
The techniques used in Tapestry are described, which do not depend on triggers and thus be implemented on any commercial database that supports SQL and are applicable to any append-only database.
Online aggregation
A new online aggregation interface is proposed that permits users to both observe the progress of their aggregation queries and control execution on the fly, and a suite of techniques that extend a database system to meet these requirements are presented.
Handling Discovered Structure in Database Systems
The paper investigates some of the characteristics of inductive learning and knowledge discovery as they pertain to database systems and the constraints that would be imposed on appropriate inductivelearning algorithms is discussed.
An object-oriented query processor that produces monotonically improving approximate answers
It is shown how a monotone query-processing strategy can be implemented, making effective use of semantic information presented by the object-oriented view.
Towards Induction in Databases
It is suggested that a revision to the base capabilities of relational DBMS would circumvent the need for (or at least reduce the complexity of) much of this middleware and provide a more appropriate platform on which to develop future technologies, such as OLAP and Knowledge Discovery Systems.
Dynamic Generation and Refinement of Concept Hierarchies for Knowledge Discovery in Databases
The study leads to some algorithms for automatic generation of concept hierarchies for numerical attributes based on data distributions and for dynamic refinement of a given or generated concept hierarchy based on a learning request, the relevant set of data and database statistics.
Advances in wireless network technologies provide the basis for mobile computing. The wireless communication provides users with the ability to work while moving. However, mobile computing poses many
Data replication for mobile computers
This paper presents and analyzes various static and dynamic data allocation methods to optimize the communication cost between a mobile computer and the stationary computer that stores the online database.
Improving Responsiveness for Wide-Area Data Access
This paper describes two separate but related techniques aimed at tackling remote access delays that arise at runtime in a widearea environment and addresses the longerterm unavailability of data sources.
Intelligent Query Answering by Knowledge Discovery Techniques
This study shows that knowledge discovery substantially broadens the spectrum of intelligent query answering and may have deep implications on query answering in data- and knowledge-base systems.
