CS 561 Spring 2007.
CS561 "HOMEWORK" #8
Assigned: Thursday, Mar 22, 2007
Due: Thursday, Mar 29, 2007
Read the assigned readings on query processing and robustness.
I have handed out copies in class, and they are also linked
onto our webpage.
Prepare one integrated written report on the two readings
to be turned in in the next class meeting.
The goal is to tease out the main points from
the assigned readings.
Topics to consider in your critique include:
Explain what are the new goal(s) that these two systems
are targetting beyond what current query optimizer support.
Briefly sketch the most important
ideas proposed and techniques employed in each of the two
Further, discuss which of those techniques could be applied
also in stream query processing systems.
Discuss why or why not. Also, indicate if any adjustments
may have to be made to these methods in
order to do so.
Can you think of any research challenges beyond
those tackled in those 2 papers that remain unsolved to date
for query optimization?
