Spatial data or social security numbers). The ultimate task is to teach the DBMS how to store, manipulate, and retrieve instances of these data types. In the first step, the designer has to model the structure of the desired new data types as well as their type-specific behavior. From a user’s point of view, new data types are either complex or atomic. Complex data types possess structure and their values can thus be represented as specialized records or tuples or collections using the data definition language.

This is in contrast to older work, in which the implementation of new data models was also investigated. , for database design) be adapted accordingly. , ACID-transactions or closed nested transactions), while significantly less work has been done on extensible transaction management. , Kornacker et al. 1997). The probable reasons for this trend are that many of the proposed nonstandard transaction models have never been implemented and questions remain concerning their semantics and range of applicability.

Two extreme alternatives exist to tackle this problem. In the first, information about the data sources’ interfaces are hard-wired into the (integrating) DBMS. The realm of integrable external data stores is thus restricted, and the DBMS needs to be extended for each specific type of data store. In the other alternative, a common data model, query language, or interface to external data stores is set as a prerequisite. For instance, we might require that all data stores understand SQL and be able to return the results of SQL queries in the form of relations.
