Abstract:

Traditionally, the design and implementation of a conventional database system begins and ends with the choice of a data model followed by the specification of a model-based data language. Thus, the database system is restricted to a single data model and a specific data language. An alternative to this traditional approach to database-system development is the multi-lingual database system MLDS. This alternative approach enables the user to access and manage a large collection of databased via several data models and their corresponding data languages wihtout the aforementioned restiction. This thesis presents the specification and implementation of a relationalSQl language interface for the MLDS. Specifically, it presents the specification and implementation of an interface which translates SQL language calls into attribute-based language requests. We describe the software engineering aspects of our implementation and an overview of the four modules which comprise our relationalSQL language interface.
