Abstract

Currently, a great deal of effort is being directed toward the development of heterogeneous database concepts in order to achieve system interoperability. This paper presents a conceptual model that was used in a study for developing an automatic means of translating one database structure into another with minimal human intervention. Our prototype— developed from this model—demonstrates the usefulness of an approach that would allow many of today’s systems to be more accessible when platform, syntax or semantic changes occur. This preliminary study is limited to the automatic conversion of one specific relational database into a different, yet still relational, database format. The paper concludes with a summary of findings in order to provide a foundation for future work on the use of the proposed model as a generic, extensible framework.
