Full Disjunctions:Polynomial-Delay Iterators in Action

- The full disjunction is a relational operator that maximally combines data from several relations
- It extends the natural join by allowing incompleteness
- It extends the binaryouterjoin to many relations

- This paper presents algorithms and optimizations for computing full disjunctions
- Theoretically, full disjunctions are more tractable than previously known
- Practically, a significant improvement over the state-of-art, an iterator-like evaluation

The outerjoin operator is not associative

For more than two relations, the result depends on the order in which the outerjoin is applied

In general, outerjoins cannot maximally combine relations (no matter what order is used)

Outerjoin is not suitable for combining more than two relations!

The full-disjunction operator (as well as other operators

like the Cartesian product or the natural join) can generate

an exponential(in the input size)number of tuples

One way to obtain an evaluation with a running time

linear in the output is to devise an algorithm that acts

as an iterator with an efficient next() operator, that is,

An enumeration algorithm that

runs with polynomial delay

An enumeration algorithm runs with polynomial delay if the time between every two successive answers is polynomial in the size of the input

- Incremental evaluation
- First tuples are generated quickly
- Full disjunctions are large, yet the user need not wait for the whole result to be generated

- Suitable for Web applications, where users expect to get the first few pages quickly
- In addition, the user can decide anytime that enough information has been shown

- First tuples are generated quickly
- Enable parallel query processing
- While one processor generates the FD tuples, other processors apply further processing

Scheme graphs w/o cycles

In the scheme graph, the relation schemes are the nodes and there is an edge between every two schemes with one or more common attributes

It is not always possible to formulate a

full disjunction as a left-deep sequence

of outerjoins

Rajaraman and Ullman[PODS 96]:

Some full disjunctions cannot be formulated as expressions of outerjoins (i.e., with arbitrary placement of parentheses)

- Unlike NLOJ, the next algorithm, PDelayFD, is applicable to all schemes (and not just trees)
- Algorithm PDelayFD has a polynomial delay, but the delay islargerthan that of NLOJ
- Nevertheless, PDelayFD by itself is a significant improvement over the state-of-art

- After generating a tuple t of FD(B1), we need to generate all tuples of FD(B2) that can join t
- Non-polynomial delay if all of FD(B2) is computed for finding these tuples!
- Solution:
- PDelayFD can be modified so that it generates only those tuples of FD(B2) that can join t

- The last step is to generate all tuples of FD(B2) that cannot be joined with tuples of FD(B1)
- However, this task is by itself NP-hard!
- Solution: When generating all tuples of FD(B2) that can be joined with some tuple of FD(B1), we collect enough information for generating the remaining tuples of FD(B2)
