The purpose of this correspondence is to present an approach for verifying that explicitly stated integrity constraints are not violated by certain transactions. We utilize a relational model wherein constraints are given in a language based on the first-order predicate calculus. Transactions are written in terms of a Pascal-like host language with embedded first-order predicate calculus capabilities allowing queries and updates.
