Version Management in Federated Database Systems
This work provides the conceptual foundations for the extension of federated database technology with the management of versioned data. It determines the requirements of a "versioned" federation compared to an "unversioned" one, and then develops features to fulfil these requirements. These features include a version model for the federation that allows to integrate versions from the component systems' heterogenous version models, and a mechanism for the propagation of versioning-relevant operations from the component systems to the federation and vice versa. A prototypical implementation for a simplified environment is described to show the feasibility of the proposed solutions.
