The Demaq system: declarative development of distributed applications


Kanne, C C; Böhm, A; Marth, E (2008). The Demaq system: declarative development of distributed applications. In: 28th ACM SIGMOD/PODS Conference, Vancouver, Canada, 9 June 2008 - 12 June 2008, 1311-1314.

Abstract

The goal of the Demaq project is to investigate a novel way of thinking about distributed applications that are based on the asynchronous exchange of XML messages. Unlike today's solutions that rely on imperative programming languages and multi-tiered application servers, Demaq uses a declarative language for implementing the application logic as a set of rules. A rule compiler transforms the application specifications into execution plans against the message history, which are evaluated using our optimized runtime engine. This allows us to leverage existing knowledge about declarative query processing for optimizing distributed applications.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
