Abstract

This project focused on developing a methodology to support the semi-automatic evolution of a database application. As a case study, we implemented an Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) application that persisted its data to a MySQL database. Changes were then made to the database structure and we applied our methodology to evolve the application. We determined that entity beans with container-managed persistence were most friendly to schema evolution; as a result, we recommend that most business logic be placed inside session beans.
