The system architecture of EAS-E: An integrated programming and data base language
by D. P. Pazel, A. Malhotra, H. M. Markowitz
EAS-E is an application development system based on an entity-attribute-set view of system description. It consists of a procedural language for manipulating data base and main storage entities, and direct (nonprocedural) facilities for interrogating and updating data base entities. The EAS-E software itself was implemented with the entity-attribute-set view. This paper reviews some of the EAS-E features and considers some of its implementation details. This paper is both an introduction to the EAS-E software architecture and an example of the usefulness of the entity-attribute-set view.
