One primary difference between transactions in an engineering design environment and those in conventional business applications is that an engineering transaction typically lasts a much longer time. Existing proposals for supporting the long-lived engineering transactions are all based on the public/private database architecture, in which a transaction checks out design objects from the public database, modifies them, and checks them into the public database for use by other transactions… CONTINUE READING
