QBD*: a graphical query language with recursion

M. Angelaccio, T. Catarci, G. Santucci
1990 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
The conceptual model is the Entity-Relationship Model; the query language, whose expressive power allows recursive queries, supports visual interaction.  ...  The system, called Query by Diagram * (QBD * ), makes use of a conceptual data model, a query language on this model and a graphical user interface.  ...  Conclusions In this paper we have presented QBD * , a graphical query language that allows for expressing both non-recursive and recursive queries.  ...

Low complexity aggregation in graphlog and Datalog [chapter]

Mariano P. Consens, Alberto O. Mendelzon
1990 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show how Datalog can be extended to compute a large class of queries with aggregates without incurring the large expense of a language with general set manipulation capabilities.  ...  In the case where no rules are recursive, the language is exactly as expressive as Klug's rst order language with aggregates.  ...  power and complexity of languages that support aggregation over recursion.  ...

vSPARQL: A view definition language for the semantic web

Marianne Shaw, Landon T. Detwiler, Natalya Noy, James Brinkley, Dan Suciu
2011 Journal of Biomedical Informatics  
We evaluate the expressivity of our approach by defining views for practical use cases and comparing our view definition language to existing query languages.  ...  We present a general solution for RDF information set reuse inspired by database views.  ...  The language supports subqueries and recursive subqueries for gathering data from a database; additionally, SQL supports database views to restrict the set of data accessible to queries.  ...

XQBE: A Graphical Interface for XQuery Engines [chapter]

Daniele Braga, Alessandro Campi, Stefano Ceri
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Something similar happened with QBE, initially proposed as an alternative to SQL, that has then become popular as the user-friendly query language supported by MS Access.  ...  XQuery is increasingly popular among computer scientists with a SQL background, since queries in XQuery and SQL require comparable skills to be formulated.  ...  Conclusions We have shown a query in XQBE (in Figure 3 ) equivalent to the W3C query of Figure 2 , and described how our interface generates an equivalent XQuery version of that query.  ...
