Seamless design: Impedance mismatch revisited

  • P. G. Cherkasova
  • B. A. Novikov


A pattern for information system implementation is proposed. The pattern is based on the commonly accepted object-oriented methodologies of design and development oriented toward widely used imperative programming languages. At the same time, this pattern makes it possible to fully use the power of declarative possibilities of the DBMS query language. The presented estimations demonstrate much higher performance of the applications obtained compared to those created by means of commonly accepted techniques.
