The FOLRE Project
This is the Web Home page of the FOLRE project, at
Catalonia. Our group
belongs to the Information
Systems Section of the Software
Department (LSI) of the Universitat
Politècnica de Catalunya at Barcelona.
FOLRE is both an acronym for "Facing On toward Logic database Rule
Enforcement" and the name of the cover structure recently used again to
higher up the typical Catalan human castles.

The main goal of the FOLRE project is to deal with problems related to
databases that allow the definition of intensional information. This
definition is done in general by means of views, that allow to define
new facts (derived facts or views) from those explicitly stored in the
database, and integrity constraints, that define conditions that each
state of the database should satisfy. Relational databases, deductive,
object-relational, etc. fall into this category.
In this context, our goal is, and has been, to study the problems
related with database schema validation and also to provide an
integrated treatment of the problems that may arise when updating its
contents. We find, among them, materialized view maintenance, view
updating, integrity constraint checking and maintenance, condition
Current Research Interests
At the present moment, our main area of research is oriented toward the
development of a tool to validate relational database schemes defined
in SQL Server. This research is being performed through the project
"Database Schema Validation with SQL
Server" granted by Microsoft Research. We are also working in other
- Database schema validation.
- Uniform treatment of database schema validation..
- Query containment.
