Example text

In the Wrst section, the components of databases and their functional capabilities are introduced, followed by a brief historical perspective on the developments of relational, object-based, and object-relational databases. The structures, constraints, and operations of the relational database model are then introduced, and an informal presentation of major SQL features is given. 1 An Overview of Database Management A database (DB) is a collection of structured (organized), interrelated information units (objects).

Allow databases to be viewed in a manner that is based on the meaning of data as seen by their users. 2. Accommodate various levels of abstraction and detail. 3. Support both anticipated and unanticipated database uses. 4. Accommodate multiple viewpoints. 5. Be free of implementation and physical optimization detail (physical data independence). Abstractly speaking, a database model is a collection of generic structures, semantic integrity constraints, and primitive operations. The structures of a database model must support the speciWcation of objects, object classiWcations, and inter-object relationships.
