A Generalized-Method For Maintaining Views
Computer Science; Cybernetics; Engineering; Electrical & Electronic
A generalized method for maintaining views, which takes into account each view's pattern of usage, is described. This method involves storing views in both actual and potential forms. When views exist in actual form (concrete views), updates are deferred until the view is queried. Differential files are formed from tuples inserted and deleted from the defining relations. These differential files are then used in conjunction with specified update schemes to update the view. Views alternate between actual and potential form based on their usage and the storage replacement algorithm.
