SqlIceCube: Automatic Semantics-Based Reconciliation for Mobile Databases

Abstract : Optimistic replication lets multiple users update local replicas of shared data independently. These replicas may diverge and must be reconciled. In this paper, we present a general-purpose reconciliation system for mobile transactions. The basic reconciliation engine treats reconciliation as an optimization problem. To direct the search, it relies on semantic information and user intents expressed as relations among mobile transactions. Unlike previous semantics-based reconciliation systems, our system includes a module that automatically infers semantic relations from the code of mobile transactions. Thus, it is possible to use semantics-based reconciliation without incurring the overhead of specifying the semantics of the data types or operations.
