The active functions of aDBS (active Database System) are currently achieved by ECA rule system. But it is difficult for EC A rules system to be analyzed and validated. And there is no perfect model today. Based on the Petri Net, This paper thinks over the character of rules system, and establishes a system model. And some behaviors are analyzed in this paper.
