Managing Merlin-like hitlists with Daycart

Relational databases such as Oracle don't have Merlin's "hitlist" concept, but it isn't difficult to build one. We will describe and demonstrate an efficient server-side hitlist system based on a simple pair of tables. All of Merlin's standard hitlist operations (add-hits, delete-non-hits, etc.) are supported, and hitlists persist between sessions. This is particularly useful for browser-based DayCart applications.
