Abstract

Disclosed is an idea of how to partition the database without changing application program. When a database is partitioned, partition key column is required. But some databases don't have appropriate partition key column. In this case, "adding a new column with changing program" seems to be normal approach. But when using this new idea, application program does not have to be changed.
