Current Project Description:
Query Optimization over Web Databases
We focus on the definition, design, and implementation of query
optimization techniques in Web accessible database environments.
We are proposing a stratified view of Quality of Service (QoS) for
databases, including system based query optimization. In this
approach, Web accessible databases are organized in communities
based on the information that they store. Each community is defined
by an ontology. This project has far-reaching implications for Web-
based emerging applications, i.e., it could pave the way for
building advanced Web-based applications like Virtual Enterprises
(VE) and the integration of Web-based Enterprise Resource Planning
(ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM).
