OYSTER Configurations
As a teaching tool, OYSTER can be configured to demonstrate three of the basic ER architectures and building identities from assertion sources. These configurations are easily created by setting the appropriate parameters in the OYSTER Run Script. The base OYSTER can accept a set of input identities (optional) and one or more reference sources of different layouts where each source can be a capture source or a non-capture source. After processing the inputs, OYSTER produces a set of output identities (optional) and a link index. The configurations options are shown in Figure A.1
