For undergraduate database management students or business professionals Here's practical help for understanding, creating, and managing small databases--from two of the world's leading database authorities. Database Concepts gives undergraduate database management students and business professionals alike a firm understanding of the concepts behind the software, using Access 2016 to illustrate the concepts and techniques. Three projects run throughout the text, to show students how to apply the concepts to real-life business situations. The text provides flexibility for choosing the software instructors want to use in class; allows students to work with new, complete databases, including Wedgewood Pacific, Heather Sweeney Designs, and Wallingford Motors; and includes coverage for some of the latest information on databases available. Teaching and Learning Experience This text will provide a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. Here's how: Provides a firm understanding of the concepts behind the software Uses Access 2013 to illustrate the concepts and techniques while also providing flexibility to choose the software used in class Allows students to work with new, complete databases Includes coverage of some of the latest information available

For database systems courses in Computer Science This book introduces the fundamental concepts necessary for designing, using, and implementing database systems and database applications. Our presentation stresses the fundamentals of database modeling and design, the languages and models provided by the database management systems, and database system implementation techniques. The book is meant to be used as a textbook for a one- or two-semester course in database systems at the junior, senior, or graduate level, and as a reference book. The goal is to provide an in-depth and up-to-date presentation of the most important aspects of database systems and applications, and related technologies. It is assumed that readers are familiar with elementary programming and data-structuring concepts and that they have had some exposure to the basics of computer organization.
Clear explanations of theory and design, broad coverage of models and real systems, and an up-to-date introduction to modern database technologies result in a leading introduction to database systems. Intended for computer science majors, Fundamentals of Database Systems, 6/e emphasizes math models, design issues, relational algebra, and relational calculus. A lab manual and problems give students opportunities to practice the fundamentals of design and implementation. Real-world examples serve as engaging, practical illustrations of database concepts. The Sixth Edition maintains its coverage of the most popular database topics, including SQL, security, and data mining, and features increased emphasis on XML and semi-structured data.

Transaction processing is an established technique for the concurrent and fault tolerant access of persistent data. While this technique has been successful in standard database systems, factors such as time-critical applications, emerg ing technologies, and a re-examination of existing systems suggest that the performance, functionality and applicability of transactions may be substan tially enhanced if temporal considerations are taken into account. That is, transactions should not only execute in a "legal" (i.e., logically correct) man ner, but they should meet certain constraints with regard to their invocation and completion times. Typically, these logical and temporal constraints are application-dependent, and we address some fundamental issues for the man agement of transactions in the presence of such constraints. Our model for transaction-processing is based on extensions to established mod els, and we briefly outline how logical and temporal constraints may be ex pressed in it. For scheduling the transactions, we describe how legal schedules differ from one another in terms of meeting the temporal constraints. Exist ing scheduling mechanisms do not differentiate among legal schedules, and are thereby inadequate with regard to meeting temporal constraints. This provides the basis for seeking scheduling strategies that attempt to meet the temporal constraints while continuing to produce legal schedules.

SQL is a solid guide and reference to the key elements of SQL and how to use it effectively. Developed by authors who needed a good resource for students in their database class, this is an ideal supplement for database courses — no matter what main text you use or what flavor of SQL is required. It features a short and inexpensive introduction to SQL for students who have some programming experience and need to learn the main features of SQL; and suggested shortcuts for learning and practice, depending on the experience of the user. This book is recommended for novice developers, programmers, and database administrators as well as students in database courses, business courses, and IT-related courses. Provides tutorial-based instruction for the main features of SQL for programmers and other technical professionals in need of a brief but really good introduction to SQL. The approach is vendor-neutral—so very adaptable and flexible The focus is on teaching concepts by walking through concrete examples and explanations, and self-review exercises are included at the end of each chapter. Coverage is on the key features of the language that are required to understand SQL and begin using it effectively. SQL 2003-compliant.
