Lore: A Database Management System for Semistructured Data

McHugh, J. and Abiteboul, S. and Goldman, R. and Quass, D. and Widom, J. (1997) Lore: A Database Management System for Semistructured Data. SIGMOD Record, 26 (3). pp. 54-66.




Lore (for Lightweight Object Repository) is a DBMS designed specifically for managing semistructured information. Implementing Lore has required rethinking all aspects of a DBMS, including storage management, indexing, query processing and optimization, and user interfaces. This paper provides an overview of these aspects of the Lore system, as well as other novel features such as dynamic structural summaries and seamless access to data from external sources.
