View materialization is an important technique for high performance query processing, data integration and replication. Solutions to the problem of incrementally maintaining materialized views are very relevant. So far, most work on this problem has been confined to relational settings and solutions have not been comprehensively evaluated. This paper describes MOVIE, a complete, implemented and evaluated solution to the problem of incrementally maintaining materialized OQL views in ODMG-compliant object databases. The evaluation throws light into how the effectiveness of incremental maintenance is affected by issues such as database size, and the complexity and selectivity of views.
