1991

This paper discusses the theory and implementation of a general production rule system using Query Rewrite in POSTGRES. Such a system is useful because data management features including Integrity Constraints, Database Procedures, Query Modification Views and Materialized Views can be implemented as a few simple rules. Query Rewrite provides a highly efficient rule system on which these features can be implemented with performance similar to or better than traditional methods.
