Modelling constructs for specifying semantic integrity are reviewed,
and their implicit execution semantics discussed. An integrity mainte-
nance model based on these constructs is presented. An implementa-
tion of this model in a persistent programming language is described,
allowing exible automated dynamic integrity management for appli-
cations updating a persistent store; this implementation is based on
an event-driven architecture.
