CODD: COnstructing Dataless Databases

Provided by: Association for Computing Machinery
Topic: Data Management

Effective design and testing of database engines and applications is predicated on the ability to easily construct alternative scenarios with regard to the database contents. A limiting factor, however, is that the time and/or space overheads incurred in creating and maintaining these databases may render it infeasible to model the desired scenarios. In this paper, the authors present CODD, a lucid graphical tool that attempts to alleviate these difficulties through the construction of "Data-less databases".
