Behavioural aspects of Information Systems are now taken into account in a lot of Conceptual Models. However, the behavioural concepts ot these Models have rarely been fully implemented in DBMS.

RUBIS is an extended Relational DBMS which supports an extended relational schema (including event and operation concepts) and automatic control of the dynamic aspects of Applications, i.e event recognition, operation triggering and time handling.

After a short presentation of the basic concepts and the specification language used for the extended Schema, we focus on two internal mechanisms:

These two mechanisms permit an automatic execution of the extended schema and so provide rapid prototyping capabilities.
