Research project In this research, a new way of supporting updates to views is being investigated --- update by cooperation.
Computers are often used to store large amounts of information in database-management systems. The organization of these data is often very complex, rendering it difficult to make changes in a consistent fashion. In this work, a new approach to the support of such changes, which requires the cooperation of all users affected by the changes, is investigated. In comparison to existing methods, this new approach promises to reduce the amount of inconsistency in computer databases.
