A full treatment of the OO approach is beyond the scope of this course. You are no doubt familiar with using UML diagrams in your OO programming courses. For a quick review of the fundamentals, please see references [Lee, 2002] and [Martin, 1993]. However, in the interest of comprehensive coverage, an overview of the approach is provided in chapters 5 and 23. Database Tree A database tree (hierarchy) is a traditional alternative, which used to be employed prior to the introduction or the E-R model; it was successfully employed in a system called RAMIS (the original acronym stands for “Random Access Management Information System”).
Chapter 3 ■ The Relational Model For a subtype relationship, the test is a bit more detailed; for relations R1 and R2, ask and determine the answer to the following questions: • Is (a record of ) R1 also a (a record of ) R2? • Is (a record of ) R2 also a (a record of ) R1? Possible answers to these questions are always, sometimes, or never. 2 Representing Relationships Having identified the entities and relationships, the next logical question is, how do we represent them? Four approaches have been used: database hierarchies, simple networks, complex networks, the entity-relationship model and the object-relationship model.
Superimposed on the database is a user interface that facilitates access of the database by end users. 2) and established standards are conformed to. Steps in Building a Relational Database System In constructing a RDBS, the following steps may be pursued: a. Identify entities b. Identify relationships c. Eliminate unnecessary relationships d. Develop entity-relationship diagram (ERD), objectrelationship diagram (ORD) or some equivalent model e. Normalize the database f. Revise E-R diagram, O-R diagram, or the equivalent model used g.
