A multiple DBMS (MDBMS) has been developed to provide an effective and efficient way for retrieving information from distributed, autonomous, and possibly heterogeneous databases. This MDBMS enables users to access data controlled by different DBMSs as if data were managed by a single DBMS. It supports facilities for SQL series and transactions, and considers security functions. In addition, ODBC driver at the client site has been realized to ease the development of MDBMS applications. Several popular commercial DBMSs have been successfully integrated. Currently operational, the MDBMS has been upgraded by a core manager and an access manager to improve performance.
