Abstract

Disclosed is a method for generating a query for an event sequence database. With the method, we can generate a query for searching an event sequence database by giving example operations on a real application. In an event sequence database, many recorded operation sequences are stored as text data. The following shows an example operation sequence recorded on a Web browser. Line: Time stamp, Event type, Parameters 01: 10:11:23, load, window, http://www.ibm.com 02: 10:11:25, resize, window, 400, 700
