The definition of DDBMS states that the system should make the distribution transparent to the end user and application programmer. Purpose of transparency in DDBMS is to hide implementation details of distributed database system. The main objective of implementing distribution transparency in heterogeneous distributed database system is to offer transparent access to data no matter where in the network the data is located by providing single system image to end user. Heterogeneity in distributed database system refers to system containing multiple databases of different kinds.
