Comments on: OOW 2008: The Database – really BIG announcement (industry shocking …) Friends of Oracle and Java Thu, 21 May 2015 20:49:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: Toon Koppelaars Mon, 22 Sep 2008 13:32:57 +0000 Could it be the long awaited support for CREATE ASSERTION :-) ?
It would definitly revolutionalize query processing: assuming Oracle delivers SEMANTIC QUERY OPTIMIZATION at the same time….
Very probably not though.

It might be support (at the storage) level for the transrelational model. It hyped a few years ago, but then suddenly disappeared from stage. It’s a radical concept on which Chris Date has already written a book. But is not allowed to publish yet….

Intriguing indeed.
