Abstract:

As information systems grow in scope and size, costs associated with the programming activity are quickly becoming major factors in the economic feasibility of such systems. One obvious solution is to enlist the computer itself to aid in the programming activity. The form of such aid could range from interpreters to program synthesizers automatic program generation. To date few program synthesizers have been used in real world applications due to either need for more powerful AI techniques to solve the problems involved, or to the costs of the existing AI techniques which they employ. This paper describes the work involved in minimizing the USE OF AI in one such program synthesizer, the Automatic Program Generator APG, in its application to report generation from network DBTG data bases.
