Automatic Normalisation via Metamodelling

Akehurst, David H., Bordbar, Behzad, Rodgers, Peter, Dalgliesh, N.T.G. (2002) Automatic Normalisation via Metamodelling. In: ASE 2002 Workshop on Declarative Meta Programming to Support Software Development. . (KAR id:13748)


The process of normalisation has long been accepted as a crucial part of the design for good database systems. By using a declarative approach to the specification of the normalisation rules and a precisely defined transformation, over a meta-model of a database system design language, we can automate the normalisation process. A tool supporting the normalisation of database system designs can subsequently be developed providing an invaluable aid to the software system designer.
