The realization of truly heterogeneous database systems is hampered by two principal obstacles. One is the unsuitability of traditional transaction models; this has led to the proposal of a number of new, advanced transaction models. The second is the lack of appropriate programming support for these advanced concepts. This paper addresses these two issues by pointing out the advantages of using a logic-based approach for the integration of autonomous software systems.
