Registered Names and Related Catalogs
The basic function of a registered name is to allow a local queryable object to be given the status of a queryable object in the distributed database. The register as link statement does this by registering a name in the distributed database to denote a queryable object in a local database. This allows you to use a registered name to denote its underlying object.
To support registered name transparency, it is necessary for Ingres Star to promote the complete information about the local object from the local database catalogs into Ingres Star’s equivalent catalogs and classify the information under the registered name and the owner of the registered name.
