In this paper, we discuss a multi-criteria transaction model to address problems encountered in large-scale E-commerce transaction processing systems. A multi-criteria transaction (MCT) is a generalized transaction where users can specify their preferences in a request by specifying multiple criteria in the transaction. With each criteria specification, a set of alternate execution paths is included. Thus, an MCT is less likely to fail. Moreover, the MCT model allows easy extraction of criteria from a set of transactions and, hence, optimal decisions can be made to achieve better customer satisfaction. We discuss the design of a MCT processing system and compare the MCT model to conventional transaction processing approaches.
