This paper surveys further the strategy support of the design system RAD, proposes the design methodology Design-By-Units and demonstrates how different database design strategies can be developed and supported.
Recent Trends in Database and Future Directions
This paper briefly discusses the achievements of database research and development and comments on the current status of database technology, and focuses on new directions in this area and discusses the challenges presented by new types of applications.
The Evolution of the Computerized Database
The evolution of the database is traced from its start as a non-computerized set of related data to the, now standard, computerized RDBMS (relational database management system), which discusses the factors affecting these trends.
Design of Document Database Systems
A new approach to logical schema design using complex objects is presented; a resulting logical schema allows easy querying of structured documents and can be mapped into any one of several equivalent nested relational physical schemas.
Advanced Database Systems
This article surveys the state-of-the-art in database systems in terms of data modeling, multimedia data type support, data integration capabilities, query languages, system features, and interfaces to other worlds.
Comparing the performance of object databases and ORM tools
The performance of selected open source object persistence tools is investigated, to attempt to clarify the myths surrounding the performance of the different options and to propose some preliminary explanations of the sometimes surprising results.
Strategies for deductive databases
The main motivation for the survey was the need to implement efficient rule evalua­ tion mechanisms for Active KDL, an object-oriented database system, which is currently under development at the University of Georgia.
