This project aims to study the co-evolution between database structure and programs and to propose recommendations to perform required changes on cascade. These programs are either internal to the schema as functions or triggers or external as applications written in Java or Php built on top of the DB. Our intuition is that software engineering techniques can be efficient for such issues. This project also aims to unify the abstract representation of the DB and its relationships with the internal or external program.
