Strategy for Database Application Evolution: The DB-MAIN Approach

October 2003 While recent data management technologies, e.g., object-oriented, address the problem of databases schema evolution, standard information systems currently in use raise challenging problems when evolution is concerned. This paper studies database evolution from the developer point of view. It shows how requirements changes are propagated to the database schemas, to the data and to the programs through a general strategy.

DB-MAIN: A next generation meta-CASE

April 1999 This paper describes the DB-MAIN meta-CASE architecture that attempts to conciliate seemingly contradictory goals concerning efficiency, ergonomics, evolution, reuse and ontologies integration. The architecture is based on two layers, the first of which includes built-in basic concepts and functions that should be part of every Information System oriented CASE tool.
