Sybil is a database integration and evolution environment for supporting large, heterogeneous applications. We are interested in using Sybil to support the data integration and evolution needs of applications that are using legacy databases and are looking to integrate with more modern database systems. The Sybil approach is based on loosely coupling databases or other persistent tools into lightweight alliances tailored for specific applications. Such alliances are built via four sorts of constructs: heterogeneous views, inter-database constraints, inter-database propagations, and integration supported by domain specific information.
