<p>A Prolog-based experimental system for relational databases that is not defined from the viewpoint of any specific relational topic is proposed. The idea is that the experimental system can be used in many different contexts such as query optimization, data restructuring and database design. The definition is based entirely on the theoretical foundations of the relational model. The experimental system offers a well-defined environment for studying how other systems can be integrated with relational databases. The use of the experimental system in the context of different approaches to deductive databases is considered.</p>
