An optimizing translation mechanism for the dynamic interaction between a logic-based expert system written in PROLOG and a relational database accessible through SQL is presented. The mechanism makes use of an intermediate language that decomposes the optimization problem and makes the proposed approach targetlanguage independent. It can either facilitate expert systemdatabase interaction, e.g., when integrating expert systems into business systems, or augment existing database with (external) deductive capabilities.
