One major operation in a deductive database is to verify the contents of the database with integrity constraints whenever the database is changed. The number of facts and integrity constraints in a deductive database often makes the validation process the bottleneck of the system. In this paper, we describe a set of approaches to process integrity constraints efficiently on sequential computers and on massively parallel computers.
