We describe the implementation of Hyperlog , a graph-based declarative language which supports both queries and updates over a graph-based data model called the Hypernode Model. This model is capable of representing arbitrarily complex data structures by means of nested and recursively defined graphs , while the Hyperlog language is computationally complete. By requiring only a very small number of graphical constructs , Hyperlog is well-suited to non-expert database users. In this paper we… CONTINUE READING
