Publisher Comments:

"We have in hand a wonderful book to show us how far database technology has been able to move in the direction of component databases, and what enormous challenges and ensuing rewards still lie ahead."

-- Peter C. Lockemann, Universitñt Karlsruhe

Component Database Systems is a collection of invited chapters by the researchers making the most influential contributions in the database industry's trend toward componentization

This book represents the sometimes-divergent, sometimes-convergent approaches taken by leading database vendors as they seek to establish commercially viable componentization strategies. Together, these contributions form the first book devoted entirely to the technical and architectural design of component-based database systems. In addition to detailing the current state of their research, the authors also take up many of the issues affecting the likely future directions of component databases.

If you have a stake in the evolution ofany of today's leading database systems, this book will make fascinating reading. It will also help prepare you for the technology that is likely to become widely available over the next several years.

Features

  • Is comprised of contributions from the field's most highly respected researchers, including key figures at IBM, Oracle, Informix, Microsoft, and POET.

  • Represents the entire spectrum of approaches taken by leading software companies working on DBMS componentization strategies.

  • Covers component-focused architectures, methods for hooking components into an overall system, and support for component development.

  • Examines the component technologies that are most valuable to Web-based and multimedia databases.

  • Presents a thorough classification and overview of component database systems.

Synopsis:

In recent years, database management systems have grown increasingly unwieldy as software companies attempt to incorporate a wider and wider range of functionality. Now the trend is towards componentization — "unbundling" these behemoths and repackaging their features so customers can select, pay for, and assemble only what they need.<P>Component Database Systems is a collection of papers from the researchers making the most influential contributions to this effort. Though these readings tend towards the theoretical, almost all represent the very practical directions taken by leading database vendors to establish a commercially viable componentization strategy. This book therefore has great appeal for practitioners with a stake in the near-future of the evolution of the database industry — both technically savvy IT managers and product developers whose responsibilities require that they look ahead to technology likely to become widely available over the next two or three years.
