TEMPORAL META-DATA MANAGEMENT FOR MODEL DRIVEN APPLICATIONS - Provides Full Temporal Execution Capabilities throughout the Meta-data EIS Application Lifecycle

Jon Davis, Elizabeth Chang

Abstract

In this paper we discuss how the application of temporal data management techniques to the atomic elements of a meta-data application model can provide for a complete temporal execution capability for meta-data Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) applications by maintaining a perfect synchronisation of historical data and historical application states. Temporal data management is a well understood field as it applies to the common database and its application to the meta-data EIS application lifecycle in such a solution would minimise the reduction of historical information accessibility currently experienced in most applications as the logical application functionality and data formats are regularly changed due to often irreversible version upgrades.
