Abstract

The panel session examines the following set of related questions: (1) Which problems are due to DBMS integration and not due to heterogeneity? (2) How is the consistency of heterogeneous databases defined? (3) How does serializability apply to heterogeneous databases? (4) How strict must the definition of database autonomy be? How does it complicate transaction management issues? (5) How important are atomic updates in this environment? How often are they expected? (6) Are we likely to have generalized solutions to the problem of concurrency control and recovery? A broad range of system types is considered.
