Declarative languages have recently been proposed for many new applications outside of traditional data management. Since these are relatively early research efforts, it is important that the architectures of these declarative systems be extensible, in order to accommodate unforeseen needs in these new domains. In this paper, we apply the lessons of declarative systems to the internals of a declarative engine. Specifically, we describe our design and implementation of Evita Raced, an extensible

We describe the minimalist architecture of Evita Raced, including its extensibility interfaces and its reuse of P2's data model and runtime engine. We demonstrate that a declarative language like OverLog is well-suited to expressing traditional and novel query optimizations as well as other query manipulations, in a compact and natural fashion. Finally, we present initial results of Evita Raced extended with various optimization programs, running on both Internet overlay networks and wireless sensor networks.
