A Semantic Approach for Schema Evolution and Versioning in Object-Oriented Databases

Abstract

In this paper a semantic approach for the specification and the management of databases with evolving schemata is introduced. It is shown how a general object-oriented model for schema versioning and evolution can be formalized; how the semantics of schema change operations can be defined; how interesting reasoning tasks can be supported, based on an encoding in description logics.
