Publisher Comments:

An Advanced Course in Database Systems goes beyond the relational database coverage of a typical first course and offers readers a carefully researched set of topics specifically designed for a second course in database systems: object-oriented conceptual data modeling, object-oriented databases, object-relational databases, arid databases and the Web, The target audience of the book is anyone who understands relational database technology, including both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as the database professional. The book bridges the gap between the UML and EER abject-oriented conceptual data models, guiding the reader through the latest technological advances ire object databases and the integration of databases and the World-Wide Web. SUGNIFICANT FEATURES
  • Provides detailed coverage of UML class diagrams including a comparative analysis with EER diagrams.
  • Establishes the foundation far object-oriented and object-relational concepts by offering in-depth coverage of the Object Data Standard.
  • Gives comprehensive coverage of advanced relational and object-relational features of the SQL standard.
  • Includes mapping of UML and EER diagrams to the relational, object-oriented and object-relational data models.
  • Presents in-depth coverage of JDBC as an example call-level interface to SQL databases.
