Modeling Structural, Temporal and Behavioral Features of a Real-Time Database

Abstract

Real-time databases are different from traditional databases in that they have timing constraints on data and on transactions upon the data. The design of this kind of databases must consider both temporal aspects of data and timing constraint of transactions in addition to the logical constraints of the database. This paper proposes a new UML profile that extends UML with concepts related to real-time databases design. These extensions aim to accomplish the conceptual modeling of a real-time database according to three aspects: structural, temporal and behavioral. Our propositions is based on MARTE (Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time and Embedded systems) profile which provides capabilities of modeling concepts to deal with real-time and embedded system features. The proposed profile is illustrated by a case study in the context of Ait Traffic Control System.
