Archive management systems
Project title: Dynamic archive management
Advisor: Bastiaan Heeren

Start date: period 2, 2006/2007
End date: period 4, 2006/2007
Archive management systems suffer from tight coupling at two points. First is
the tight coupling between database schema and the application. Second is the tight
coupling between database schema and user interfaces.
These couplings causes a compile time link between database schema and
application. Every schema change will result in a new version of the
application. These couplings also prevent customers from having a custom database
schema. They will need a custom-made version of the application, if a custom
modification of the schema is desired.
This thesis will investigate the removal of these couplings by constructing a
framework. This framework will allow the modification of the database schema.
Along with this possibility, a flexible user interface will be provided. This
will allow customers to create a specific database schema, along with a user
interface tailored to their needs.
