On the Database Component in the Knowledge-based System WIMDAS

  • S. Marx
  • M. Schader
Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)


The knowledge-based system WIMDAS uses a relational database (Oracle) for storing data and internal information. We describe its organization and how it is fitted into the system. In particular, we discuss the implementation of the interfaces between database and the other system components.
