Introduction to Database  History of RDBMS  Entity-Relationship Modeling  Database Language

Introduction to Database 

File-Based Approach 
Each program defines and manages its own data  Limitation
Separation and isolation of data Duplication of data Data dependence Incompatibility of files Fixed queries/proliferation of application program 

Database Approach 
A shared collection of logically related data, designed

to meet the information needs of an organization

Database Management System(DBMS) 
A software system that enables users to define, create and

maintain the database and provides controlled access to database
DDL DML : procedural, non-procedural Control : security, integrity, concurrency control,
recovery control, user-accessible catalog 

Components of the DBMS Environment 
Hardware - Software - Data - Procedures - People

 Advantages of DBMS .Economy of scale .Balance of conflicting requirements .Cost of conversion.Increased concurrency .Improved data integrity . Performance. Additional H/W costs .Improved backup and recovery services  Disadvantages of DBMS .Improved data accessibility and responsiveness .Data consistency . Higher impact of a failure .Enforcement of standards . Size.Improved maintenance through data independence .Sharing of data .Control of data redundancy .More information from the same amount of data .Complexity. Cost of DBMSs.Improved security .Increased productivity .

 Terminology  Relation : a relation is a table with columns and rows  Attribute : an attribute is a named column of a relation  Domain : a domain is the set of allowable values for one or more attributes  Tuple : a tuple is a row of a relation  Degree : the degree of a relation is the number of attributes it contrains  Cardinality : the cardinality of a relation is the number of tuples it contains  Relational database : a collection of normalized relation .

 Properties of Relations  The relation has a name that is distinct from all other relation names  Each cell of the relation contains exactly on atomic value  Each attribute has a distinct name  The values of an attribute are all from the same domain  The order of attributes has no significance  Each tuple is distinct. there are no duplicate tuples  The order of tuples has no significance. theoretically .

update. delete Rule5 : Comprehensive data sublanguage  Data independence rules Rule8 : Physical data independence Rule11 : Distribution independence Rule 9 : Logical data independence . When is a DBMS Relational?  Foundational rules Rule 0 : Foundational rule Rule 12 : Nonsubversion rule  Structural rules Rule 1 : Information representation Rule 6 : View updateing  Integrity rules Rule 3 : Systematic treatment of null values Rule 10 : Integrity independance  Data manipulation rules Rule2 : Guaranteed access Rule 4 : Dynamic online catalog based on the relational model Rule7 : High-level insert.

Entity-Relationship Modeling  Concepts of the E-R Modeling  Entity Types An object or concept that is identified by the enterprise as having an independent existence  Attributes A property of an entity or a relationship type  Relationship Types A meaningful association among entity types .

given the data requirements of an enterprise  UNF is a table that contains one or more repeating groups  1NF is a relation in which the intersection of each row and column contains one and only one value  2NF is a relation that is in 1NF and every non-primary-key attribute is fully functionally dependent on the primary key. Normalization  A technique for producing a set of relations with desirable properties.  3NF is a relation that is in 1NF. 2NF in which no non-primary-key attribute is transitively dependent on the primary key  BCNF is a relation in which every determinant is a candidate key  4NF is a relation that is in BCNF and contains no trivial multi-valued dependency  5NF is a relation that contains no join dependency .

but independent of a particular DBMS and other physical considerations. Conceptual Database Design  The process of constructing a model of the information used in an enterprise.  Physical Database Design  The process of producing a description of the implementation of the database on secondary storage. independent of all physical considerations  Logical Database Design  The process of constructing a model of the information used in an enterprise based on a specific data model. it describes the storage structures and access methods used to archieve efficient access to the data .
