terms-of-use application/pdf unknown Scholl, Marc H. 2011-03-24T16:08:40Z Grust, Torsten 1996 2011-03-24T16:08:40Z This work tries to employ the monoid comprehension calculus - which has proven to be an adequate framework to capture the semantics of modern object query languages featuring a family of collection types like sets, bags, and lists - in a twofold manner: First, serving as a target language for the translation of ODMG OQL queries. We review work done in this field and also give comprehension calculus equivalents for the recently introduced OQL 1.2 concepts.<br /><br />Second, we use monoid comprehensions as the formalism in which we try to find efficient execution methods working on a rich set of physical structures (including indices, vertical and horizontal decomposition, etc.). The main problem coming up here is the "nested-loop nature" of the calculus expressions. While these loop-based semantics for evaluating comprehensions at least provide a way for executing OQL queries, their execution is almost always much less efficient than alternative physical algorithms of the database engine (e.g. different types of joins).<br /><br />We are able to capture these efficient algorithms in the comprehension formalism, too. Furthermore, comprehensions are amenable to pattern-matching driven rewriting. This paper studies query rewrite optimization using monoid comprehensions and shows that efficient implementation plans can be derived in this framework. Grust, Torsten eng Scholl, Marc H.
