Although Distributed Database Management Systems (DDBMS) have been studied for many years there has been little or no emphasis that these studies have put on dynamic systems where database systems can join and depart a group of co-operating DBMS systems. We introduce a new approach to distributed query processing that allows local systems to freely join and leave a distributed system. We achieve this by eliminating the tight synchronization of the global data dictionary and local data dictionaries.
