Abstract:

Traditionally, the design and implementation of a conventional database system begins with the choice of a data model followed by the specifications 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 databases via several data models and their corresponding data languages without the aforementioned restriction. This thesis presents the implementation of a entity-relationshipDaplex languae interface for the MLDS. Specifically, it presents the implementation of an interface which translates Daplex language calls in to attribute-based data language requests. The authors describe the software engineering aspects of our implementation of an overview of the five modules which comprise our entity-relationshipDaplex language interface. Author
