Abstract

This paper presents a purpose-driven approach for development of flexible databases outgoing from the relational database concept. Based on carried out analysis of both relational and entity-attribute-value database models the aspects essential for the described purpose-driven approach are defined. The necessary requirements to be satisfied by structure-independent databases are derived and discussed in detail. Several implementations of structure-independent databases using the suggested approach have been realized and presented as well. The improvement of relational database model based on proposed structure-independent database approach is formulated.
