Changes to the conceptual structure (meta-data) of a database are common in many application environments and are in general inadequately supported by existing database systems. An approach to supporting such meta-data evolution in a simple, extensible, object database environment is presented. Machine learning techniques are the basis for a cooperative user/system database design and evolution methodology. An experimental end-user database evolution tool based on this approach has been designed and implemented. © 1994 IEEE
