<ul><li>1.Introduction to Database Changes and new experience make life delightful. Unanimous</li></ul> <p>2. Data and Information </p> <ul><li>How aredataandinformationrelated? </li></ul> <p>processing data stored on disk Step 1.The member data, including a photograph, is entered and stored on the hard disk. Step 2.The computer extracts the member data from disk. Step 3.The receipt is created and printed. </p> <ul><li>Datais raw facts </li></ul> <ul><li>Informationis data that is organized and meaningful </li></ul> <p>receipt </p> <ul><li>Computers processdata into information </li></ul> <p>Next 3. Data and Information </p> <ul><li>What is adatabase ? </li></ul> <p>Database software allows you to Collection of dataorganized soyou can access,retrieve, anduse it Database softwarealso calleddatabasemanagement system(DBMS) Add,change,and deletedata Create database Sortandretrievedata Create formsandreports Next 4. </p> <ul><li>To create a database, designers must develop a conceptual design and a physical design</li></ul> <ul><li>Conceptual design: An abstract model of a database from the user or business perspective.</li></ul> <ul><li>Physical design: Layout that shows how a database is actually arranged on storage devices. </li></ul> <p>Creating the Database 5. </p> <ul><li>Entity-relationship modeling: The process of designing a database by organizing data entities to be used and identifying the relationships among them. </li></ul> <ul><li>Entity-relationship (ER) diagram: Document that shows data entities and attributes and relationships among them. </li></ul> <ul><li>Entity classes: A grouping of entities of a given type. </li></ul> <ul><li>Instance: A particular entity within an entity class. </li></ul> <p>6. </p> <ul><li>Identifier: An attribute that identifies an entity instance . </li></ul> <ul><li>Relationships: The conceptual linking of entities in a database. </li></ul> <ul><li>The number of entities in a relationship is the degree of the relationship. Relationships between two items are common and are calledbinary relationships . </li></ul> <p>7. </p> <ul><li>There are three types of binary relationships: </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>In a 1:1 (one-to-one) relationship, a single-entity instance of one type is related to a single-entity instance of another type. </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>In a 1: M (one-to-many) relationship, a single-entity instance of one type is related to many-entity instance of another type. </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>In a M:M (many-to-many) relationship, a single-entity instance of one type is related to many-entity of another type and vice versa. </li></ul></li></ul> <p>8. Entity- relationship diagram model 9. </p> <ul><li>Normalization </li></ul> <ul><li>A method for analyzing and reducing a relational database to its most streamlined form for minimum redundancy, maximum data integrity, and best processing performance </li></ul> <p>10. Non-normalized relation 11. Normalized relation 12. </p> <ul><li>Physical view: The plan for the actual, physical arrangement and location of data in the direct access storage devices (DASDs) of a database management system.</li></ul> <ul><li>Logical view: The users view of the data and the software programs that process that data in a database management system. </li></ul> <p>13. The Hierarchy of Data </p> <ul><li>What is ahierarchy ? </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Database contains files, file contains records, record contains fields, field contains characters </li></ul></li></ul> <p>Next 14.

Relational database </p> <ul><li>What is arelationship ? </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Connection within data </li></ul></li></ul> <p>Next 32. </p> <ul><li>Hierarchical database model rigidly structures data into an inverted tree in which each record contains two elements, a single root or master field, often called a key, and a variable number of subordinate fields.</li></ul> <ul><li>The strongest advantage of the hierarchical database approach is the speed and efficiency with which it can be searched for data. </li></ul> <ul><li>The hierarchical model does have problems : Access to data in this model is predefined by the database administrator before the programs that access the data are written. Programmers must follow the hierarchy established by the data structure. </li></ul> <p>Hierarchical Database Model 33. Hierarchical Database model 34. </p> <ul><li>Data model that creates relationships among data in which subordinate records can be linked to more than one data element. </li></ul> <p>Network Database Model 35. 36. Advantages andD isadvantages of LogicalD ata Models Processing efficiency and speedare lower. Data redundancy is common, requiring additional maintenance. Conceptual simplicity; there are no predefined relationships among data. High flexibility in ad-hoc querying. New data an d records can be added easily. Relational database This is the most complicated database model to design, I mplement, and maintain.Greater query flexibility than withhierarchical model, but less thanwith relational mode l . Many more relationships can be defined. There is greater speed and efficiency than with relational database models. Network Access to data is predefined by exclusively hierarchical relationships, predetermined by administrator. Limited search/queryflexibility. Not all data aren aturally hierarchical. Searching is fast and efficient. Hierarchical database Disadvantages Advantages Model 37. EmergingData Models </p> <ul><li>Two emerging data models are theobject-relationalandhypermediamodels </li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Object-relational database model: Data model that adds new object storage capabilities to relational databases. </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Hypermedia database model: Data model that stores chunks of information in nodes that can contain data in a variety of media; users can branch to related data in any kind of relationship. </li></ul></li></ul> <p>38. Specialized Database Models </p> <ul><li>Geographical information database: Data model that contains locational data for overlaying on maps or images. </li></ul> <ul><li>Knowledge database: Data model that can store decision rules that can be used for expert decision making.</li></ul> <p>39. </p> <ul><li>Small-footprint database: The subset of a larger database provided for field workers. </li></ul> <ul><li>Embedded database: A database built into devices or into applications; designed to be self-sufficient and to require little or no administration.</li></ul> <ul><li>Virtual database: A database that consists only of software; manages data that can physically reside anywhere on the network and in a variety of formats. </li></ul> <p>40. </p> <ul><li>What is anobject-oriented database (OODB) ? </li></ul> <p>Objectis item that contains data, as well as actions that read or process data </p> <ul><li><ul><li>Can store more types of data </li></ul></li></ul> <ul><li><ul><li>Can access data faster </li></ul></li></ul> <p>Next Advantages Often usesobject query language (OQL) Stores data in objects 41. </p> <ul><li>What are examples of applications appropriate for anobject-oriented database? </li></ul> <p>Next Multimedia databases Store images, audio clips,and/or video clips Groupware databases Store documents such as schedules, calendars, manuals, memos, and reports Computer-aided design(CAD) databases Store data aboutengineering, architectural,and scientific designs Hypertext databases Contain text linksto other documents Hypermedia databases Contain text, graphics,video, and sound Web databases Link to e-form on Web page </p>
