The scheme design of active information system can provide the high capability and flexibility of developing application systems. We propose a framework for the design and realization of the active information system, to realize the active requirements from database or application in a uniform and convenient mechanism. According to the framework of an active information system (AIS), some important techniques are discussed. The definition and processing of the event and rule are described. The execution model and realization strategy are explained. This approach is very effective and practical to develop the active information application system.
