Semantic requirements for sharing behaviors in federated object-oriented database systems
This paper is concerned with reusing and sharing behaviours of component Object Oriented Database Systems in a tightly coupled federated multidatabase system environment. In such a federation, users benefit from exploiting the behaviours available in the participating components that are not available in their local systems so they can capitalise on investment made in writing their code. To facilitate this, users need to know which behaviours can be reused and shared and what are the requirements of reusing and sharing these behaviours. This means that the users will be able to build their integrated federation views augmented with behaviours of their preference.
