Sample text

The first sentence here says we want physical data independence; the second says we want logical data independence as well. 5 Physical data independence means we can change the way the data is physically stored and accessed without having to make changes in the way the data is perceived by the user; analogously, logical data independence means we can change the way the data is logically stored and accessed, again without having to make changes in the way the data is perceived by the user. And both kinds of independence 4 So do base relvars, of course.

Clearly, therefore, what we want is for compensatory actions, if any, to be driven by the applicable delete set and insert set as such, not by the arbitrary choice of syntax in which the pertinent update happens to have been formulated. INTEGRITY CONSTRAINTS Every relvar is subject to a set of integrity constraints, or just constraints for short. First of all, as we know from the section “Relations and Relvars,” any given relvar is constrained to be of a certain type (more specifically, a certain relation type)—namely, the type specified when the relvar in question is defined.

By way of example, given view LS as defined in the previous section, the following DELETE should be legal: DELETE ( LS WHERE SNO = ‘S1’ ) FROM LS ; Of course, this DELETE is really “shorthand” for the following relational assignment: 3 At least inasmuch as the underlying base relvars are! See the remarks on this point in the final section of Chapter 2. 34 Chapter 3 / The View Concept: A Closer Look LS := LS WHERE NOT ( SNO = ‘S1’ ) ; And this assignment is shorthand in turn for the following expanded version (which is, however, not legal syntax in Tutorial D as currently defined): ( S WHERE CITY = ‘London’ ) := ( S WHERE CITY = ‘London’ ) WHERE NOT ( SNO = ‘S1’ ) ; It follows that from an updating point of view, views act as pseudovariables4 (recall from the previous chapter that a pseudovariable reference is basically a construct that looks like an operational expression but appears in the target position within an assignment, and that’s exactly the situation we’re dealing with here).
