Publisher Comments:

This best-selling text introduces the theory behind databases in a concise yet comprehensive manner, providing database design methodology that can be used by both technical and non-technical readers. The methodology for relational Database Management Systems is presented in simple, step-by-step instructions in conjunction with a realistic worked example using three explicit phases—conceptual, logical, and physical database design.

The Relational Model and Languages: The Relational model; Relational Algebra and Relational Calculus; SQL: Data Manipulation; SQL: Data Definition; Query-By-Example (QBE). Database Analysis and Design: Database System Lifecycle; Database Analysis and the DreamHome Case Study; Entity–Relationship Modeling; Enhanced Entity–Relationship Modeling; Normalization; Advanced Normalization. Methodology: Methodology—Conceptual Database Design; Methodology—Logical Database Design for Relational Model; Methodology—Physical Database Design for Relational Databases; Methodology—Monitoring and Tuning the Operational System. Selected Database Issues: Security and Administration; Professional, Legal, and Ethical Issues; Transaction Management; Query Processing.

Appendices: Users' Requirements Specification for DreamHome Case Study; Other Case Studies; Alternative Data Modeling Notations; Summary of the Database Design Methodology for Relational Databases; Introduction to Pyrrho—A Liteweight RDBMS. Web Appendices: File Organization and Storage Structures; When Is a DBMS Relational?; Commercial DBMSs: Access and Oracle; Programmatic SQL; Estimating Disk Space Requirements; Introduction to Object-Orientation; Example Web Scripts.

This book is ideal for readers interested in database management or database design.

Synopsis:

This book places a strong emphasis on good design practice, allowing readers to master design methodology in an accessible, step-by-step fashion. In this book, database design methodology is explicitly divided into three phases: conceptual, logical, and physical. Each phase is described in a separate chapter with an example of the methodology working in practice. Extensive treatment of the Web as an emerging platform for database applications is covered alongside many code samples for accessing databases from the Web including JDBC, SQLJ, ASP, ISP, and Oracle's PSP. A thorough update of later chapters covering object-oriented databases, Web databases, XML, data warehousing, data mining is included in this new edition. A clear introduction to design implementation and management issues, as well as an extensive treatment of database languages and standards, make this book an indispensable, complete reference for database professionals.
