Book News Annotation:

This book examines all of the major database models, including hierarchical, network, relational, object-oriented, and object-relational models, with emphasis on the relational and object-relational models in the mainstream of the IT industry. A major theme is the transformation of requirements into a working data model, with special focus on a process called normalization, a technique for designing relational databases. Part I introduces basic database concepts and explains how to create and access objects within a database using SQL. Part II provides a foundation in database development, and Part III focuses on database implementation with emphasis on database security, OLAP, and integrating XML documents into the database. Examples in both Microsoft Access and Oracle use publicly available sample databases whenever possible. Other pedagogical features include exercises, multiple choice chapter tests, and b&w screen shots. The book is designed for those new to database technology, or for developers, managers, and administrators who need a refresher. Oppel teaches database technology courses.
