Abstract

Recently there has been increasing interest in both the problems and the potential of accommodating evolving schema in databases, especially in systems which necessitate a high volume of structural changes or where structural change is difficult. This paper presents a taxonomy of changes applicable to the Entity-Relationship Model together with their effects on the underlying relational model expressed in terms of a second taxonomy relevant to the relational model.
