Chimera integrates an object-oriented data model, a declarative query language based on deductive rules, and an active rule language for reactive processing. In this paper, we present the authors' proposal for constraint management in Chimera, which relies on the declarative specification of passive constraints as deductive rules and on their transformation into different types of active rules.
