Abstract

Active rules or triggers are widely accepted as powerful mechanisms to implement applications or systems behaviour. Several rule execution models were proposed as extended functionalities for different database systems. However, these models lack in flexibility and adaptability to specific database systems or specific application requirements. In this paper, we propose a generic framework which provides a set of basic functions which can be used to implement any execution model. This framework, called Active-Design toolkit, can be exploited in many situations where applications need specific model or different models for different subsets of rules.
