Methods and Tools for Construction of Highly Configurable Database Families for Embedded Systems

About the Project

Embedded computer systems often need infrastructure software for the management of data that often has a lot in common with traditional database management systems (DBMS). However, the hardware heterogeneity, the sometimes extreme resource constraints, and the different requirements of the often very special applications inhibit the use of standard software solutions. In this situation programmers frequently react by developing their own solutions, which leads to a "reinvention of the wheel". The goal of this project is to evaluate and improve methods and tools for the construction of highly customizable DBMS. These techniques could reduce the developments by supporting reuse without increased hardware costs. Besides the construction of DBMS families a further goal is to analyse application code in order to automate and this simply the configuration configuration process.

Fame-DBMS is a research project distributed between two German Unversities, namely Institute for Technical and Business Information Systems, Working Group Databases and Information Systems at the Otto-von-Guericke University at Magdeburg, and Department of Computer Sciences 4, Distributed Systems and Operating Systems at Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg


Fame-DBMS is partly supported by the DFG (German Research Foundation) under grant no. SA 465/32-1 (Magdeburg) and SP 968/2-1 (Erlangen). Funding period: 08/01/2006 - 08/01/2008
