A Classification of Transaction Processing Systems
June 1991 (vol. 24 no. 6)
pp. 63-76

The problems in building a transaction processing system are discussed, and it is shown that the difficulties are a function of specific attributes of the underlying database system. A model of a transaction processing system is presented, and five system dimensions important in classifying transaction processing systems-the process, machine, heterogeneity, data, and site components-are introduced. The specific problems posed by various combinations of system characteristics are analyzed. The evolution of transaction processing systems are described in terms of the framework.
