Expressive query specification through form customization

Magesh Jayapandian, H. V. Jagadish
2008 Proceedings of the 11th international conference on Extending database technology Advances in database technology - EDBT '08  
These modifications are themselves specified through filling forms to create an expression in an underlying form manipulation expression language we define.  ...  If an available form cannot express a desired query, the user is stuck. In this paper, we propose a mechanism to let a user modify an existing form to express the desired query.  ...  FoXQ [10] is a system that helps users build queries incrementally by navigating through layers of forms, and helps them view results in the same way.  ...

Demonstration of Using a Domain-Specific Visual Modeler for Building Semantic Queries

Gábor Simon, Dániel Palatinszky, Gergely Mezei
2017 Extended Semantic Web Conference  
We designed a domain-specific language and built a fully customized, web-based editing workbench upon it. The workbench achieves high usability and comprehensibility.  ...  Usually only simple keyword search or browsing through pre-determined navigation paths are offered to this audience.  ...  We have created a custom domain-specific language capable of describing queries for the semantic data and customized the web-based editing interface to meet the challenges in this domain.  ...

A Reuse Based Object-Oriented Framework Towards Flexible Formulation of Complex Queries [chapter]

Abdelhak Seriai, Chabane Oussalah
2001 Flexible Query Answering Systems  
Indeed, with the exception of approaches facilitating syntax problems, there is a noticeable absence of models taking charge of the user through from specification of their needs to formulation of their  ...  queries.  ...  Query 7.1 specification expression can be broken up into two sub-query specification expression: Query 7.2 and Query 7.3.  ...

The Impact of Query Suggestion in E-Commerce Websites [chapter]

Alice Lee, Michael Chau
2012 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
In this paper we propose a research agenda for studying the impact of query suggestion features on cognitive load and customer satisfaction during online shopping in e-commerce websites.  ...  Based on a review on prior literature in query suggestion and online shopping, a research model and five hypotheses are posed.  ...  If query suggestions are provided, customers would be able to express the products they intend to search in more specific ways.  ...

INTEGRATED SUPPORT FOR DATA ARCHAEOLOGY

RONALD J. BRACHMAN, PETER G. SELFRIDGE, LOREN G. TERVEEN, BORIS ALTMAN, ALEX BORGIDA, FERN HALPER, THOMAS KIRK, ALAN LAZAR, DEBORAH L. McGUINNESS, LORI ALPERIN RESNICK
1993 International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems  
A formal knowledge representation system provides the core technology that facilitates database integration, querying, and the reuse of queries and query results.  ...  Data archaeology is a skilled human task, in which the knowledge sought depends on the goals of the analyst, cannot be specified in advance, and emerges only through an iterative process of data segmentation  ...  ad hoc queries that they then realize are generally useful, a simple "abstraction" window guides them through the process of creating a form from a query.  ...

Intensional associations between data and metadata

2007 Proceedings of the 2007 ACM SIGMOD international conference on Management of data - SIGMOD '07  
with a join mechanism augmented to permit matching of query result relations, instead of only atomic values, is an elegant way to uniformly query across data and metadata.  ...  In this paper, we argue that (1) the relational model augmented with queries as data values is a natural way to uniformly model data, arbitrary metadata and their associations, and (2) relational queries  ...  customers, so it cannot satisfy the query specifications.  ...

Using Queries to Associate Metadata with Data

Divesh Srivastava, Yannis Velegrakis
2007 2007 IEEE 23rd International Conference on Data Engineering  
Even though the need has been apparent, a simple, elegant approach to uniformly model and query both data and metadata has been elusive.  ...  In this paper, we argue that the relational model augmented with queries as data values is a natural way to uniformly model data, arbitrary metadata and their association.  ...  To express this relationship in queries, SQL is extended with a new operator . =. The semantics of that operator are illustrated through the following example.  ...

Building XML query forms and reports with XQForms

Michalis Petropoulos, Yannis Papakonstantinou, Vasilis Vassalos
2002 Computer Networks  
XQForms takes inputs (i) an XML Schema that models the source data to be queried and presented, (ii) a declarative specification, called XQForm annotation, of the query forms and reports that will be generated  ...  XQForms is the first generator of web-based query forms and reports for XML data.  ...  At this point, the end user interacts with the query form page and through the form elements submits the desired values.  ...

Managing Data through the Lens of an Ontology

Maurizio Lenzerini
2018 The AI Magazine  
As a consequence, the semantics of datasets is not formally expressed in a machine-readable form.  ...  Now, consider the query checking whether there exists an ordinary customer who involved a special customer in a project, expressed in logic as ∃X∃Y Ordinary(X), Involved(X, Y ), Special(Y ) If we simply  ...
