The DAIDA Demonstrator: Development Assistance for Database Applications

  • Matthias Jarke
  • DAIDA Team


The DAIDA project investigates comprehensive support for the development of database-intensive applications. The DAIDA methodology involves going from concept-based specifications via process-oriented development to quality-assured database software. A prototype DAIDA environment has been built that integrates knowledge-based development aids and graphical interaction tools under the control of a global knowledge base management system. An extended example illustrates the approach.
