<p>A novel yet simple technology is presented that enables customized database management systems (DBMSs) to be developed rapidly. The authors are designing an extensible DBMS, called GENESIS, which is based on this theory. They give a detailed description of their first operational prototype. DBMS software components in GENESIS can be written in a few months. When all components for a target DBMS are present, writing the architecture specification of the DBMS and reconfiguring GENESIS takes a few hours and can be accomplished with negligible cost.</p>
