Executive Briefing: Advances in Concurrency Control and Transaction Processing

Front Cover
IEEE Computer Society Press, 1997 - Computers - 113 pages
Advances in Concurrency Control and Transaction Processing addresses developments in transaction processing, and the motivation for transactions and basic transaction concepts. The briefing begins with a thorough discussion of traditional transaction processing and leads into more advanced techniques that depend on the programmer providing additional input parameters enabling the system to process transactions in a more sophisticated way. The briefing examines current transaction advances in terms of their relative strengths, weaknesses, and appropriateness. It also concentrates on techniques based on sophisticated extensions to traditional concurrency control, recovery, and processing protocols that do not affect the way transactions are programmed. It reviews techniques based on the semantics of the data and operations, and improvements in the performance of traditional transactions. New correctness criteria are also discusses and the briefing concludes with a discussion of transaction processing trends.
