Detailed Process on Designing Arc Database

Data Byte Design

Database Design is the process of producing a detailed data model of a database. This logical data model contains all the needed logical and physical design choices and physical storage parameters needed to generate a design in a Data Definition Language, which can then be used to create a database. A fully attributed data model contains detailed attributes for each entity. The term database design can be used to describe many different parts of the design of an overall database system. Principally, and most correctly, it can be thought of as the logical design of the base data structures used to store the data. In the relational model these are the tables and views. In an object database the entities and relationships map directly to object classes and named relationships. However, the term database design could also be used to apply to the overall process of designing, not just the base data structures, but also the forms and queries used as part of the overall database application within the database management system (DBMS).

Main

Generates appropriate definitions for each supported programming environment Basic domain manipulation methods are: Single field declaring Field array declaring Check against valid value
Data Dictionary

Set valid value
Check field validity Move from “C” to host variable Move from host variable to “C”

Main

Input “Create Table” statements Use Domains to define field type Output Structure declaration Macro to declare host variables Macro to copy host variables to structure Macro to copy structure to host variables Macros that define different parts of SQL statement related to table structure Column list for SELECT statement Update list of UPDATE statement Insert list for INSERT statement

Main

Create Table Customer ( CUST_NAME copy “NAME.DOM” CUST_ID copy “ID.DOM” CUST_ADDR copy “ADDR.DOM” );

STRUCT{ Name_D (CustName) ID_D (CustID) Addr_D (CustAddr) } Customer;

# define SELECT_CUSTOMER SELECT Cust Name Cust ID Cust Addr FROM customer INTO CustName_H CustID_H CustAddr_H
