9780072465631: Database Management Systems (Irwin Computer Science)

Database Management Systems provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the fundamentals of database systems. Coherent explanations and practical examples have made this one of the leading texts in the field. The third edition continues in this tradition, enhancing it with more practical material.

The new edition has been reorganized to allow more flexibility in the way the course is taught. Now, instructors can easily choose whether they would like to teach a course which emphasizes database application development or a course that emphasizes database systems issues. New overview chapters at the beginning of parts make it possible to skip other chapters in the part if you don't want the detail.

More applications and examples have been added throughout the book, including SQL and Oracle examples. The applied flavor is further enhanced by the two new database applications chapters.

Manuals for Oracle, MS, and DB2 that explain how to set up servers.
New instructor's guide with chapter summaries and tips.
SQL Exercises allow students to create sample databases and put solutions online.
A chapter on QBE chapter and Case Study are available on-line.
Lecture slides
Full solutions-odds for students and a complete set for instructors.
Two new applications chapters have been added. They include a discussion of application development using a DBMS and a discussion of building internet applications that includes material on HTML, XML, Javascript and XSL.
Flexible Organization: The new organization makes it possible to teach an introductory application-oriented course or introductory systems-oriented course. Instructors can easily select a suitable set of overview chapters that allow other chapters in the part to be skipped.
More applications and examples have been added throughout the book to help make the material more relevant to students.
The book has been updated to reflect the SQL:1999 standard.
Pedagogy has been improved with the addition of chapter objectives, review questions, boxes about system-specfic information, and improved layout and figures.
A case study runs throughout the book where appropriate showing students how to apply what the concepts they are learning.
