Event monitoring and active behaviors are important aspects in many software systems and application domains, not only in database management systems. In this paper, we propose an Event-Condition-Action (ECA) approach that spans from application data to application components and behaviors. Starting from an exception manager we previously developed in the context of a workflow management system, we derived an autonomous active component capable of handling a variety of events and of enacting
