Using a conceptual data language to describe a database and its interface [chapter]

Kenneth J. Mitchell, Jessie B. Kennedy, Peter J. Barclay
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This achieves a uniform, natural way of describing databases and their interfaces.  ...  It is shown how this language can be used in the role of data definition and, when combined with interface classes, in the definition of database interfaces.  ...  The results of research on both databases and human-computer interaction require integration in a framework to promote organised mutual exploitation.  ...

Query by example

Moshé M. Zloof
1975 Proceedings of the May 19-22, 1975, national computer conference and exposition on - AFIPS '75  
An appreciation of the features of QBE offers insight into the more general, and widely used, paradigm of tabular query interfaces for relational databases.  ...  Some systems, such as Microsoft Access, offer partial support for form-based queries and reflect the influence of QBE.  ...  A successor called Office-by-Example [701] sought to extend the QBE visual interaction paradigm to applications such as electronic mail integrated with database access.  ...

Query optimization in a memory-resident domain relational calculus database system

Kyu-Young Whang, Ravi Krishnamurthy
1990 ACM Transactions on Database Systems  
We present an interesting result that a major cost of processing queries in memory-resident database systems is incurred by evaluation of predicates.  ...  We believe this paper opens the issues of query optimization in memoryresident database systems and presents practical solutions to them.  ...  Carolyn Turbyfill and Dina Bitton performed the formal benchmarking. Anil Nigam and John Robinson read an earlier version of this paper and contributed valuable comments.  ...
