Capability-Sensitive Query Processing on Internet Sources

Garcia-Molina, H. and Labio, W. and Yerneni, R. (1999) Capability-Sensitive Query Processing on Internet Sources. In: 15th International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 1999), March 23-26, 1999, Sydney, Austrialia.




On the Internet, the limited query-processing capabilities of sources make answering even the simplest queries challenging. In this paper, we present a scheme called GenCompact for generating capability-sensitive plans for queries on Internet sources. The query plans generated by GenCompact have the following advantages over those generated by existing query-processing systems: (1) the sources are guaranteed to support the query plans; (2) the plans take advantage of the source capabilities; and (3) the plans are more efficient since a larger space of plans is examined.
