Book Preface

Database management systems are now an indispensable tool for managing information, and a course on the principles and practice of database systems is now an integral part of computer science curricula. This book covers the fundamentals of modern database management systems, in particular relational database systems.

We have attempted to present the material in a clear, simple style. A quantitative approach is used throughout with many detailed examples. An extensive set of exercises (for which solutions are available online to instructors) accompanies each chapter and reinforces students’ ability to apply the concepts to real problems.

The book can be used with the accompanying software and programming assignments in two distinct kinds of introductory courses:

1. Applications Emphasis: A course that covers the principles of database systems, and emphasizes how they are used in developing data-intensive applications. Two new chapters on application development (one on databasebacked applications, and one on Java and Internet application architectures) have been added to the third edition, and the entire book has been extensively revised and reorganized to support such a course. A running case-study and extensive online materials (e.g., code for SQL queries and Java applications, online databases and solutions) make it easy to teach a hands-on application-centric course.

2. Systems Emphasis: A course that has a strong systems emphasis and assumes that students have good programming skills in C and C++. In this case the accompanying Minibase software can be llsed as the basis for projects in which students are asked to implement various parts of a relational DBMS. Several central modules in the project software (e.g., heap files, buffer manager, B+ trees, hash indexes, various join methods) are described in sufficient detail in the text to enable students to implement them, given the (C++) class interfaces.

Many instructors will no doubt teach a course that falls between these two extremes. The restructuring in the third edition offers a very modular organization that facilitates such hybrid courses. The also book contains enough material to support advanced courses in a two-course sequence.
