Object-Oriented Design of Information Systems: Troll Language Features [chapter]

G. Saake, T. Hartmann, R. Jungclaus, H-D. Ehrich
1994 Advances in Database Systems  
We present features of the language T ROLL for the abstract specification of information systems. Information systems are regarded to be reactive systems with a large database.  ...  An object is modeled as a process with an observable state. The language T ROLL itself allows for the integrated description of structure and behavior of objects.  ...  Acknowledgements For many fruitful discussions on the language wc are gratcful to all members of IS-CORE, especially to Amilcar Sernadas, Cristina Sernadas, Josc Fiadeiro, and Roel Wieringa.  ...
