The Starburst Active Database Rule System

Widom, J. (1996) The Starburst Active Database Rule System. Technical Report. Stanford InfoLab. (Publication Note: IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE), 1996)




This paper describes our development of the Starburst Rule System, an activdatabase rules facility integrated into the Starburst extensible relational database system at the IBM Almaden Research Center. The Starburst rule language is based on arbitrary database state transitions rather than tupleor statement-level changes, yielding a clear and flexible execution semantics. The rule system has been implemented completely. Its rapid implementation was facilitated by the extensibility features of Starburst, and rule management and rule processing is integrated into all aspects of database processing.
