Abiteboul, S. and Goldman, R. and McHugh, J. and Vassalos, V. and Zhuge, Y. (1997) Views for Semistructured Data. Technical Report. Stanford InfoLab. (Publication Note: Workshop on Management of Semistructured Data, Tucson, AZ, May 1997)




Defining a view over a semistructured database introduces many new problems. In this paper we propose a view specification language and consider the problem of answering queries posed over views. The two main approaches, query rewriting and view materialization, are outlined with focus on the diffcult problems caused by the semistructured nature of the data.
