Abstract

Investigation into the concept of active database and the advantages to be realized of its use, in particular in the field of industrial engineering, to produce a better quality of database in a shorter time frame. Both passive and active databases can be manipulated by commands issued by users or applications. Yet, active database uniqueness lays in its ability to manipulate itself. It is possible for a command to originate from the active database itself instead of from some outside control mechanism. Hence, the database controls actively some of its own functions. The feasibility of utilization of an active database in the area of object oriented environment is investigated. The characteristics of active database which can be used to create a very efficient database is outlined. A proposed methodology which defines levels of activity in a database is outlined.
