ABSTRACT

ASSET_A_242:  Layered, Multi-Level Secure DBMS Prototype (DADAISM)
    A prototype that manages all user and system-generated data in the
form of database objects and manages higher level information on each of
these objects in the form of database directories and dictionaries.
    This set of code is a prototype DBMS written in Ada for Ada. The
system, written by the Stanford Research Institute, consists of a
demonstration which attempts to show that a DBMS may be written in Ada.
This is an example of Ada being used as a design language for a DBMS.
The system contains a set of buffer utility packages as well as some
relational algebra packages.
