comprehensive database textbook  July 6, 2011
by


I used this textbook to teach a course in Database Systems. It 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. This textbook is for someone who, whether student or practitioner, wants a completely thorough treatment of the topic of databases, with virtually no topic left out, and with enough detail and examples to apply the techniques in practice. This textbook can also be used as a reference for IT professionals. I needed this textbook for a class. I got it at a great price and it arrived on time! Highly recommended!

Summary

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 Fifth Edition brings Web and legal issues to the fore in two new chapters, Database Architectures and the Web and Professional, Legal, and Ethical Issues. Students are exposed not only to the foundational theory of databases but also to the most recent developments in the field.

This book is ideal for a one- or two-term course in database management or database design in an undergraduate or graduate level course. With comprehensive coverage, this book can also be used as a reference for IT professionals.

-Database design methodology is explicitly divided into three phases based on the widely accepted Entity–Relationship model: conceptual, logical, and physical. Each phase is described in a separate chapter with an example of the methodology working in practice.

-A clear and easy-to-understand presentation supports student learning and retention: definitions are highlighted clearly, chapter objectives are stated succinctly, and chapters are summarized completely.

-Numerous examples and diagrams throughout each chapter illustrate the main concepts, and a realistic case study is integrated throughout the book.

-Extensive treatment of SQL in three tutorial style chapters, covering both interactive and embedded SQL.

-Extensive treatment of the Web as an emerging platform for database applications with many code samples for accessing databases from the Web including JDBC™, SQLJ, ASP, ISP, and Oracle® PSP.
