A dynamic constraint expresses conditions that involve facts of two or more states of the database. Since the database is expected to satisfy such conditions, a fundamental issue about integrity constraints is their enforcement. Many methods have been developed in this respect. The purpose of this paper is to present a brief survey of methods for dynamic constraint defmitionand enforcement. Also we classify and compare these methods with respect to several relevant features.
