Abstract

A multidatabase system integrates pre-existing and heterogeneous databases in a distributed environment. A multidatabase transaction is a consistent and reliable execution of an application over a multidatabase system. In this paper, we first summarize the characteristics of multidatabase transactions, then present a multidatabase transaction specification language, the InterBase Parallel language (IPL). IPL components and design issues are described in detail. The implementation of IPL is also discussed.
