Using a conceptual data language to describe a database and its interface.

Conference Proceeding
Mitchell, K., Kennedy, J., & Barclay, P. J. (1995)
Using a conceptual data language to describe a database and its interface. In C. Goble, & J. Keane (Eds.), Advances in Databases: Proceedings [of the] 13th British National Conference on Database - BNCOD13, 1995, 101-119. doi:10.1007/BFb0000543
We propose a conceptual approach to defining interfaces to databases which uses the features of a fully object oriented data language to specify interface objects combined wit...
