TIP: A Temporal Extension to Informix

Yang, J. and Ying, H. and Widom, J. (1999) TIP: A Temporal Extension to Informix. Technical Report. Stanford InfoLab. (Publication Note: 7th International Conference on Extending Database Technology (EDBT 2000), Konstanz, Germany, March 2000, and in Proceedings of the 2000 ACM International Conference On Management of Data (SIGMOD 2000), Dallas, Texas, May 2000.)




Commercial relational database systems today provide only limited temporal support. To address the needs of applications requiring rich temporal data and queries, we have built TIP (Temporal Information Processor), a temporal extension to the Informix database system based on its DataBlade technology. Our TIP DataBlade extends Informix with a rich set of datatypes and routines that facilitate temporal modeling and querying. TIP provides both C and Java libraries for client applications to access a TIP-enabled database, and provides end-users with a GUI interface for querying and browsing temporal data
