TACID Transactions



Developing database applications with timeliness requirements is a difficult problem. During the execu-tion of transactions, database applications with timeli-ness requirements have to deal with the possible oc-currence of timing failures, when the operations specified in the transaction do not complete within the expected deadlines. In spite of the importance of time-liness requirements in database applications, database management systems (DBMS) do not assure any tem-poral property, not even the detection of the cases when the transaction takes longer than the ex-pected/desired time. Our goal is to investigate ways to add timeliness properties to the typical ACID (Atomic-ity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability) properties supported by most DBMS.
