Abstract: A stored and inherited relation (SIR) is a stored relation (SR) extended with inherited attributes (IAs) calculated as in a view. Without affecting the normal form of the SR, IAs can make queries free of logical navigation or of value expressions. A view of the SR can do the same. The virtual (dynamic, computed...) attributes (VAs) possibly extending SRs at major DBSs, can do as well for value expressions defining them. VAs are less procedural to declare than any alternate view. Likewise, altering any attribute of an SR with VAs leading to view altering otherwise is less procedural. We propose extensions to SQL generalizing the latter two properties to SIRs. In particular, one may define IAs through value expressions not supported as VAs at present. Also, to define an IA instead of a VA is at most as procedural. We motivate our proposals through the "biblical" Supplier-Part DB. We postulate SIRs standard on SQL DBSs.
