Methods and tools for the construction of highly configurable database families for embedded systems
The FAME-DBMS project moved to TU Dortmund. Visit the new project homepage at www.fame-dbms.org. This page is no longer maintained.
Embedded computer systems often need infrastructure software for the management of data that often has a lot in common with traditional
database management systems (DBMS). However, the hardware heterogeneity, the sometimes extreme resource constraints, and the different
requirements of the often very special applications inhibit the use of standard software solutions. In this situation programmers
frequently react by developing their own solutions, which leads to a "reinvention of the wheel".
The goal of this project is to evaluate and improve methods and tools for the construction of highly customizable DBMS. These techniques could
reduce the developments by supporting reuse without increased hardware costs. Besides the construction of DBMS families a further goal is to
analyse application code in order to automate and thus simplify the configuration process.
