Abstract

Discovered by noted IBM researcher E. F. “Ted” Codd in 1970, Codd's Relational Model of Data became the inspiration for the SQL database query language. Whilst SQL is the basis for most popular database management systems, they do not faithfully implement the relational model and deviate from it in problematic ways. Rel is a database management system — developed by Dave Voorhis at the University of Derby — that faithfully implements the relational model and is the first and most complete implementation of the innovative Tutorial D database query language designed by database researcher and author C J Date and former IBM developer and SQL Standards Committee member Hugh Darwen. In continuous development since 2004, Rel is used for research and database education at various universities worldwide. With the recent addition of features for integrating external data sources, Rel is evolving into an increasingly viable and effective “desktop database" tool for manipulating and querying data on personal computers. This session provides a background to Rel and demonstrates some of its significant new features.
