Communicative databases


Yu, Kwang-I (1981) Communicative databases. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology.


A hierarchical organization stores its information in a large number of databases. These databases are interrelated, forming a closely-coupled database system. Traditional information systems and current database management systems do not have a means of expressing these relationships. This thesis describes a model of the information structure of the hierarchical organization that identifies the nature of database relationships. It also describes the design and implementation of the Communicative Database Management System (CDMS).
