Guide to the EpoDB Schema

EpoDB Group

Note: The database has been materialized first in SICStus Prolog and then in Sybase relational tables. The complex types (list, mixed types) in Prolog were first stored in Sybase as text strings that could be parsed after retrieval. To facilitate queries, we have been normalizing those complex types as needed. Documentation of the schema that follows is not yet complete.
