Introduction to DBMS Database: A Database is a collection of inter-related data from which some information can be extract. Database Management System (DBMS) Database Management Systems organize and structure data so that it can be retrieved and manipulating by users and application programmer. Database Model: The data structures and access techniques provided by a particular DBMS are called as Data Model. • Hierarchical • Network • Relational Hierarchical data model: - This model is like a hierarchical tree structure; used to construct a hierarchy of records in the form of nodes and branches. The data elements presnt in the structure of parent/ child relationship. - Every child has one parent. - You can see only one record at a time. - Retrieving the data in a Hierarchical database thus required navigating through the records, Moving up, down, sideways one record at a time. - Example Windows Explorer - Developed By IBM Named as Information Management System (IMS) in 1968 The Drawback of Hierarchical data model - It cannot handle a large data - It’s not support many to many to relation Network data model - The simple structure of a Hierarchical database became a disadvantage when the data had a more complex structure. In an order-processing database, for example, a single order might participate in three different parent/child relationships, linking the order to the customer who placed it, the salesperson who took it, and the product ordered. The Network model extended the Hierarchical model by allowing a record to participate in multiple parent/child relationship Network databases had their disadvantages like Hierarchical database, they where very rigid. The set relationships and the structure of the records had to be specified in advance. The Drawback of Network data model - Changing the database structure typically required rebuilding the entire database. Relational Model • • • • Data is organized in terms of rows and columns in a table knowns as relations The position of a row in a table is of no importance. The intersection of row and column must give a single value and not a set of values. Column name must be unique


• • •

Row must be unique It eliminated the explicit parent/child structures from the database, and instead of represented all data in the database as simple row/column tables of data values. A relational database is a database where all data visible to the user is organized strictly as tables of data values, and where all database operations work on these tables.

The publication of the paper “A relational Model of Data for Large Shared Database” by Dr. E.F. Codd in June 1970 in the “Communication of ACM” , set a trend for virgorous and extensive investigation into a theoretical frame work to support further work in the area of Data Modelling. The end result is the Relational Database Management System.

The 12 Rules for an RDBMS (Codd' s Rule)
Rule 1: The information Rule All Information is explicitly and logically represented in exactly one way i.e by data values in tables. Rule 2: The rule of guaranteed access Every item of data must be logically addressable by resorting to a combination of a Table name, Primary key and column name. Rule 3: The systematic treatment of null value This rule states that support for null values must be consistent throughout the DBMS, and independent of the data type of the field. Rule 4: The Database Description Rule A description of the database is held and maintained using the same logical structures used to define the data. This allows users to query such information in the same way and using the same language, as they would do for any other data in the database. Rule 5: Comprehensive sub-language Rule There must be at least one language whose statements can be expressed as character strings confirming to some well-defined syntax, which is comprehensive in supporting the following: - Data definition, view Definition, Data Manipulation - Integrity Constraints - Authorization - Transaction Boundaries All the above topics are manageable through Structural Query Language (SQL) statement. Rule 6: The view-updating Rule All views that are theoretically updateable are also updated by the system. A view is a table is non-existent in its own right, but instead derived from one or more base tables. Rule 7: The High Level Insert, Update and Delete Rule The capability to handling a base relation, or infact a derived relation, as a single operand must hold good for all retrieve, update, delete and insert activity. This means that the major DML commands, namely SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE and INSERT must be available and operational on sets of rows in a relation. Rule 8: The physical independence Rule The user access to the database remains logically consistent even if the storage representation is changed.

An Exception is an identifier in PL/SQL that is raised during execution that terminates main body of action. EXCEPTION is raised by two methods - An Oracle error occurs and then associated exception is raised automatically. - Using RAISE statement within the block, the exception being raised may be user defined or predefined EXCEPTION is three type 1) Pre Defined Exception 2) User-Defined Exception 3) Non-Pre Defined Exception 1) Pre Defined Exception The predefined oracle package standard has defined exceptions for certain common errors. Exceptions are handled using names not using error numbers. The errors which are not handles using exception, can be handled usinf exception ‘OTHERS’ Examples Too_many_rows No_data_found Zero_divide others Some Sample Programs Using Pre-Defined Exceptions

Why Use Package Packages offer the following advantages: 1) Packages enable the organization applications into efficient modules. Procedure dept_pr (mdeptno number) . Creating the Package Body Syntax CREATE [Or Replace] PACKAGE BODY package_body_name IS | AS private type and item declarations subprogram body End package_body_name.put_line('dname is '|| mdname) . subsequent calls to related sub programs in the package require no I/O. create or replace package body emp_proc as Procedure emp_pr (mempno number) as msal number . dbms_output. Thereby reducing redundant coding. Each package is easily understood. begin select sal into msal from emp where empno=mempno . Creating the Package Specification Syntax CREATE [Or Replace] PACKAGE package_name IS | AS public type and item declarations subprogram specifications End package_name. Procedure dept_pr (mdeptno number) as mdname varchar2(10) .put_line('sal is '|| msal) . 6) Package promotes code reuse through the use of libaries that contain shared procedures and functions. end. 3) A Package's public variables and cursor persist for the duration of the session. Therefore all cursors and procedures that execute in the environment can store them. Therefore. end. 2) Package allows granting of privileges efficiently. and the interfaces between packages are simple. clear and well defined. Some Sample Program using Package and Package Body 1) create or replace package emp_proc as Procedure emp_pr (mempno number) . 4) Packages enable the overloading of procedures and functions when required. dbms_output. 5) Package improves performance by loading multiple objects into memory at once. begin select dname into mdname from dept where deptno=mdeptno. 50 . end.

objects may help in other ways.If OO code is written. Abstract Data type Abstract Data type is a datatype that consists of one or more subtypes. zip number) .Implementing Object Techniques Object Technology: • Object Technology is another step forward in the software enginnering life cycle that allows us to: . In an object table. the chance of reusing previously written code modules is increased. CREATE TYPE person_ty AS OBJECT (name vachar2(250). • Minimizing cost through reusibility Oracle provides full support for all three different implementation – Relational. if OO database objects are created the chances that these database objects will be reused in increased. Object. address address_ty) . Why Should Objects Be Used? Objects reduce complexity by giving an intuitive way of representing complex data and its relations. zip number) . city varchar2(25).Oriented Relational. CREATE TYPE person_ty AS OBJECT (name vachar2(250).Represent real thing as objects • Object Technology is a method of managing complexity so that we can develop solutions that simulate real-world problems. major object types are described.If database objects are built using standards. city varchar2(25). OBJECT TYPES Oracle supports many different types of objects. Standard adherence:. Creation of an Object CREATE TYPE address_ty AS OBJECT (Street varchar2(50). Similarly. Besides simplifying the interaction with data. then a de facto standard for application of tables is being created. the columns of the table map to the columns of an abstract datatype. Rather that being constrained to the standard Oracle data type of NUMBER. state vachar2(25). Examples of benefits that come from using OO features are: Object reuse: . CREATE TYPE address_ty AS OBJECT (Street varchar2(50). 68 . the abstract data type can more accurately describe data. DATE. ObjectRelational. address address_ty) . In the following sections. state varchar2(25). then the chances they will be used increase exponentially. and VARCHAR2.Model real Thing . An abstract data type can be used to create an Object Table. If multiple applications or tables use the same set of database objects.

called referenced objects.Person. Object views allow the development of OO features within a relational database. CREATE TABLE customer 69 .city like ‘M%’ . A nested is a collection of rows.person. CREATE TYPE address_ty AS OBJECT (Street varchar2(50). CREATE TYPE person_ty AS OBJECT (name varchar2(25).Person. are Physically separated from the objects that refer to them. zip number) .addess. Another type of object.CREATE TABLE customer (customer_id number. Updating Data using Objects UPDATE customer client SET client. the nested table as a column. object views give the benefits of relational table storage and OO structures. also known as VARRAYS. In one sense.City FROM customer client WHERE client. the array is a nested table a limited set of rows Varying Arrays. Object views Object views allow adding OO concepts on top of existing relational tables. The size of the array is limited when it is created. A row object is different from a column object.person. an abstract data type can be created based on an existing table definition.addess. each with the same data type. They are physically embedded within another object.Name Client. Varying Arrays A varying array is a set if objects. For example. person person_ty) Retrieving Data using Objects SELECT client. References are typically among the last OO features implemented when migrating a relational database to an object-relational or pure OO one.person.Address. address address_ty) . References (also known as REFs) are essentially pointers to row objects. A row object. always represents a row.City=’Chennai’ . it is an object that is treated as a column in a table. For each record within the main table. a kind of bridge between the relational and OO worlds. on the other hand. Thus. represented as a column within the main table.Person. Deleting Data using Objects DELETE from customer client where client. city varchar2(25).city=’Mumbai’ where Client. When a table is created with a varying array. An example of a column object would be a varying array.address. state varchar2(25). Nested Tables A nested table is a table within a table. it’s a way of storing a one-to-many relationship within one table. allows storing repeating attributes in tables. References Nested tables and Varying Arrays are embedded objects.city=’Mumbai’ .Address.

If with ROWID is not specified with the REF clause. A REF can also be used in a manner similar to a foreign key in a RDBMS. potentially saving storage space.address_ty(Street. this can be used as a part of the creation of either a table or an abstract datatype Create table company_info (company_name varchar2(50). which can hold a maximum of 3 elements of data type varchar2(1000). REF columns can be added to nested tables with the ALTER TABLE command. but takes more space. Varying arrays are collectors that allow repetition of only those column values that change.zip)) from customer . the default is to not store ROWIDs with the REF values. An OID is a 128 bytes base –64 number. much the same way as a primarykey/foreign-key relationship in relational tables. an address table. if more than one table is needed in a primary-key/foreign-key relationship related to a single table. To get the value stored in the 70 . this SQL statement creates a table called company_info. The use of REFs eliminates this problem.person_ty(name. REF’s establish relationship between two-object tables.e. which contains an embedded object called address that is a varray of type company_address_ty. A call to a REF returns the OID of the object instance. as they will not allow REF values unless the corresponding entries in the SCOPE table is present. person person_ty) . and to allow the user to select that object. A REF is used primarily to store an object identifier. address company_address_ty). have difficulty. SCOPE clauses prevent dangling references. There can be only one REF clause for a given REF column. VARIABLE ARRAYS A varying array allows the storing of repeated attributes of a record in a single row. i. Now that the varying array company_address_ty is created. CREATE TYPE COMPANY_ADDRESS_TY AS VARRAY (3) OF varchar2 (1000). ORCLE stores the varying array data internally using the RAW datatype. Varying arrays can be used to accurately represent one –to –many relationships where the maximum number of elements on the many side of the relationship is known and where the order of these elements is important. each storing address information for the company. create view cust_obj of address_ty with object oid (customer_id) as select customer_id.state.(customer_id number. This data type acts as a pointer to an object. Storing a REF with a ROWID seeds dereferencing operation. because an unscoped REF can refer to any accessible object table. 3 entries per record.city. This statement creates a varray type called company_address_typ. For example. REF values can be stored with or without a ROWID. A scope clause in a definition forces a set of REFs for a given column to be confined to a single object table. Reference object The referencing object (REFs data type) is something that is new to ORACLE 8i. REF scope can be set at either the column or table level. Relational tables however. which is not very useful except as handle to the object instance. that stores addresses from several entities.

p. Oracle Database cannot restore a table to an earlier state across any DDL operations that change the structure of the table.

the persistent area contains information that is valid and applicable through multiple executions of the SQL statement. Data Dictionary Cache This area saves the re-reading of data from the Dictionary Table on a hard disk referenced while parsing SQL statements. It contains information such as user account data. runtime stacks and buffers. environment and session parameters. Library Cache The Library Cache contains both shared and private SQL areas. it goes through a parse tree in the shared pool. contains library cache performance information for each type of object in the library cache. It contains session-specific information. Database Buffer Cache The data block buffer stores the most recently queried data from the database. Each private area is deallocated after the cursor to the session is closed. and so on. Oracle can service identical requests simply by retrieving them from its cached memory for reuse. So before performing a hard disk operation. the shared area contains the parse tree and execution path for SQL statements. The v$librarycache view lists performance information for each type of object in the library cache. A private SQL area is created for each transaction initiated. Its size is controlled by the variable DB_BLOCK_BUFFERS parameter. It also contains headers of PL/SQL packages and procedures that have been executed. It contains information such as segment information. datafile names. security and access privileges. which has a value calculated from the size of about 74 . and Privileges. data dictionary cache. Specifically. To improver Oracle performance. The number of private SQL areas a user session can have open at one time is limited by the value of the OPEN_CURSORS init. The runtime area contains data that is used only while the SQL statement is being executed.ora parameter.Shared SQL Pool When an SQL statement is issued by a user process. segment names. and available free storage space. This is done for efficiency -. The shared pool contains the library cache. execution plan and parse tree for SQL statements. Oracle uses a Shared SQL area to save in cache the intermediate results from SQL commands previously returned.to avoid time-consuming hard disk operations. table descriptions. Within the private SQL area of the library cache. extent locations. such as bind variables.

The V$bgprocess view lists all background processes. performs "garbage collection". Redo Log Buffer Cache The redo log buffer is used to store redo information in memory before it is flushed to the Online Redo Log Files. 75 . The v$process view displays all processes that are connected to the database. including background and user processes. User and Server Processes (Snnn) Applications and utilities access the RDBMS through a user process. disk blocks and memory blocks accessed while executing the statement.1 to 2 percent of the database. The v$sqlarea view displays the text of SQL statements in the shared SQL area. The server process parses and executes SQL statements that are submitted to it and returns the result sets back to the user process. which can be dedicated to one user process or shared by many user processes. Four background processes are mandatory -. and restarts failed processes in the database. Oracle doesn't have time to write modified database changes from the System Global Area (SGA) down to disk. Database Writer (DBWn) The Database Writer (DBWR) writes and retrieves blocks from datafiles through the buffer cache.required for startup of each Oracle instance: System Monitor (SMON) The System monitor performs automatic crash recovery on the Oracle instance in the event it fails. System Background Processes The PROCESSES parameter in init. and other information. It is also the process that reads data blocks from the data files into the database buffer cache.ora specifies the maximum number of processes accessing the database. It looks for free spaces and organizes them into contiguous areas. Large Pool Introduced with Oracle 8 to store user session global area infor and for parallel processing/recovery. It wakes itself up routinely to clean up free space in datafiles (much like a defragmenter for hard drives). plus the number of users accessing the statements. Its size is initialized according to the LOG_BUFFER (bytes) parameter. Process Monitor (PMON) The Process monitor performs recovery (such as releasing locks failed processes held on resources). The number of redo log space requests can be monitored using the v$sysstat view. It releases locks held by processes which failed before they released memory allocations. If the command shutdown abort is issued by the user. Some suggest using the DB_WRITERS parameter to define as many DBWR processes as there are physical disks used to store data files. The user process connects to a server process. PMON analyzes user processes that access the database. This space is managed by latching and writing the Least Recently Used (LRU) block to hard disk.

Log Writer (LGWR) The Log Writer writes and retrieves its blocks from datafiles through the Redo Log Buffer. The v$archive view provides information on the archived logs written by ARCn (ARCH pre Oracle8i). At a specified time.ora file is not set to TRUE. 76 . In Oracle 8i. the database will hang. User trace Database trace start-up and other commands and responses to commands to a database are stored in an Alert Log. If the database is operating in archivelog mode AND the ARCHIVE_LOG_START parameter in the init. Alert Logs Database start-ups and other commands and responses to commands to a database are stored in an Alert Log. Trace Writer (TRWR) The operating system Process ID for each running process are maintained in a trace file located in the file name specified in parameter BACKGROUND_DUMP_DEST. the DBWR_IO_SLAVES parameter defines the number of I/O slaves to improve performance. Redo log files are achived to tape or other media by the ARCH background process. that's folder /admin/INSTANCE_NAME/bdump under the ORACLE_BASE folder. This process is optionally enabled if parameter CHECKPOINT_PROCESS contains a TRUE value. Archival Process (ARCn) The full online redo logs are copied to the archived redo log files by this process. Other background system processes .. it updates all the data and control files with the new log file control number. Depending on the LOG_CHECKPOINT_INTERVAL parameter. It is a background process that monitors the number of dirty buffers that have not been written to disk. Checkpoint Process (CKPT) The checkpoint (CKPT) process frees up limited memory space and ensures instance recovery.. it also gives the DBWR a wakeup call to write dirty buffer to disk. By default.
