CS 561 Spring 2007.
CS561 HOMEWORK #2
Assigned: Thursday, Jan 25, 2007
Due: Thursday, Feb 1, 2007
Most importantly, project1 on developing an ORDB application is out.
I suggest you make sure to spend time on this early on as you
may encountered unexpected obstacles down the line.
Last week we have discussed adding OO features to a database
model. We focussed primarily the impact of this addition on
data modeling and applications.
For this week, again review your OODB/ORDB readings.
Then aim to identify the main
of the underlying database
management system that
are affected by this model change. Examples of such services
that may need to be enhanced or replaced include query processing,
transactions, indexing, storage, etc.
Try to organize your thoughts, in some written notes would be
most advisable, so that you can
contribute to the discussion in class. However,
I'll not collect any written homework from you on this.
Read the assigned readings on
triggers and rules in database
They are linked into our course webpage.
This week I'll not collect a written critique
on these readings, as we'll be spending at most 1/2 of the class
on this topic.
However, for the following week, you will be writing a critique
on this material -- so you can start thinking about this now.
