Abstract

Some ideas on the construction of user applications as atomic actions are developed. Atomic actions that last a long time pose several problems if 'conventional' ideas on concurrency control and recovery are applied. What is required is some means of delaying commitment without sacrificing performance. A model is proposed in which it is possible for an action to release and process as yet uncommitable objects. The impact of this on recovery is also discussed.
