Schema evolution and integration

Stewart M. Clamen
1994 Distributed and parallel databases  
This paper reflects on existing evolution support schemes and introduces a more general and functional mechanism to support schema evolution and instance adaptation for centralized and distributed object-oriented  ...  The mechanism is general enough to provide much of the support necessarily for heterogeneous schema integration, as well as incorporating much of the features of object migration and replication.  ...  This reemphasizes the similarities between the schema evolution problem and the schema integration problem.  ...

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle : Practical Approaches to Schema Integration, Evolution and Versioning [chapter]

John F. Roddick, Denise de Vries
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper investigates each of these approaches and outlines the current research directions in schema integration, evolution and versioning.  ...  Three themes are apparent in recent schema integration, evolution and versioning research. First, the need to reduce the number of schema changes that are necessary.  ...  Thus in many respects, schema and data integration and schema evolution and versioning can be viewed as cognate problems in that there are multiple sources of data which are held, and which need to be  ...

Carlo A. Curino, Hyun Jin Moon, Alin Deutsch, Carlo Zaniolo
2010 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
schema and integrity constraints evolution are significantly more difficult and have thus far remained unsolved.  ...  In this paper, we address this issue by introducing a formal evolution model for the database schema structure and its integrity constraints, and use it to derive update mapping techniques akin to the  ...  through both structural changes of the schema and integrity constraints evolution, and (iii) a set of operators that support modeling of integrity constraint evolution, and a characterization of how integrity  ...

Special Issue on: Evolution and Versioning in Semantic Data Integration Systems

A Flexible Graph-Based Data Model Supporting Incremental Schema Design and Evolution [chapter]

Katrin Braunschweig, Maik Thiele, Wolfgang Lehner
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We want to address this problem by developing a schema-optional and flexible data model that supports the integration of heterogenous and volatile web data.  ...  Inspired by the on-going web 2.0 trend, we want users to participate in the design and management of the schema.  ...  First, we have to define a uniform data model that enables efficient integration of structurally diverse data and flexible evolution of the schema.  ...

An online bibliography on schema evolution

Erhard Rahm, Philip A. Bernstein
2006 SIGMOD record  
We briefly motivate and present a new online bibliography on schema evolution, an area which has recently gained much interest in both research and practice.  ...  For example, data integration architectures, such as enterprise information integration (EII) and enterprise application integration (EAI), are now common and must be able to deal with schema changes for  ...  We broadly assign papers within the following categories: • Database schema evolution • XML schema evolution • Ontology evolution • Software evolution and • Workflow evolution.  ...

Schema Evolution in Data Warehousing Environments – A Schema Transformation-Based Approach [chapter]

Hao Fan, Alexandra Poulovassilis
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The schemas of the data sources and the integrated database may be expressed in different modelling languages. It is possible for either the data source schemas or the warehouse schema to evolve.  ...  This evolution may include evolution of the schema, or evolution of the modelling language in which the schema is expressed, or both.  ...  In this paper we address the problem of schema evolution in materialised data integration scenarios, including both evolution of a source schema and of the warehouse schema, and also the impact on any  ...

2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a two-layered approach to content schema evolution consisting of a system level responsible for bookkeeping and integrity issue detection, and a semi-automatic application level responsible  ...  To control the inevitable evolution of the content schema, the schema should be subject to configuration management together with the actual content.  ...  A Two-Layered Approach to Content Schema Evolution Our approach to content schema evolution divides the problem into two layers: A system level responsible for storage, bookkeeping and integrity issue  ...

Such data integration raises challenging issues: (1) Support for multiple independently-managed schemas, (2) Ease of schema evolution, and (3) Simple schema mappings.  ...  In order to address these issues, we propose a novel approach to semantic integration of scientific data which uses XML schemas and RDF-based schema mappings.  ...  Such data integration is very difficult to support in traditional data management approaches [14] . Challenges for scientific data modeling and integration are: 1) Ease of Schema Evolution.  ...
