RELATIONAL DATABASES

2
Relational data Structure RELATION: Table with columns and rows ATTRIBUTE: Column of a relation DOMAIN: Set of allowable values for one or more attributes TUPLE: Row of a relation DEGREE of a relation: Number of attributes CARDINALITY of a relation: –Number of tuples it contains Relational Database: A collection of normalized relations Fig 3.1 pg 75 Fig 3.2 pg 76

4
Mathematical Relations D1={2,4} and D2={1,3,5} D1 x D2= {(2,1),(2,3),(2,5),(4,1),(4,3),(4,5)} R={(2,1),(4,1)} D1={1,3} D2={2,4} D3={5,6} D1 x D2 x D3 = –{(1,2,5),(1,2,6),(1,4,5),(3,2,5),(3,2,6),(3,4,5),(3,4,6)}

5
DATABASE RELATIONS Relation Schema: A relation name followed by a set of attribute and domain name pairs. A1,A2,…..An be attributes with domains D1,D2,….Dn {A1:D1,A2:D2,…….An:Dn} is a relation schema Relation R is a set of n-tuples: (A1:d1,A2:d2,…..An:dn) such that d1 D1, d2 D2 …….dn Dn {(Bno: B5, Street: 22 Deer Rd, Area: Sidcup, City: London, Pcode:SW1 4EH, Tel_No: , Fax_No: }

6
Properties of Relations Relation has a name that is distinct Each cell of the relation contains exactly (single) value Each attribute has a distinct name The values of the attribute form the same domain The order of the attributes have no significance Each tuple is distinct; no duplicate tuples The order of the tuples has no significance Relations do not contain repeating groups –two telephone nos for a single branch office in a single cell. First Normal Form

7
Relational Keys Superkey: An attribute or set of attributes that uniquely identifies a tuple within a relation Candidate Key: A superkey such that no proper subset is a superkey within the relation –several candidate keys for a relation. –Composite Key: when a key consists of more than one attribute. Primary Key: The candidate key that is selected to identify tuples uniquely within the relation Alternate key: The candidate keys that are not selected to be the primary key Foreign Key: An attribute or set of attributes within on relation that matches the candidate key of some (possibly the same) relation

8
Representing Relational Database Schemas A relational database consists of a number of relations. Relational schemas Branch: (Bno, Street, Area, City, Pcode, tel_No, fax_No) Staff:(Sno, Fname, Lname, Address, tel_No, Position, Sex, DOB, Salary, NIN, Bno) Property_for_RentPno, Street, Area, City, Pcode, Type, Rooms, Rent, Ono, Sno, Bno) Renter(Rno, Fname, Lname, Address, Tel_No, Pref_Type, Max_Rent, Bno) Owner(Ono, Fname, Lname, Address, Tel_No) Viewing(Rno, Pno, Date, Comment) Fig pg83

9
Relational Integrity Null –Value currently unknown or not applicable Entity Integrity –No attribute of a primary key can be null Referential Integrity –Foreign key value must match a candidate key value Enterprise constraints –Additional rule specified

10
Selection Operation List all staff with a salary greater than $10,000 salary > (Staff) logical operators (AND), (OR) and ~ (NOT)

11
Projection Operation List of salaries for all staff, showing only Sno, Fname, Lname and Salary details sno, fname, lname, salary (Staff) Sno Fname Lname Salary SL21 JohnWhite SA25 ReneHowe SF31 AlLee S55 MaryAnn 30000

12
Cartesian Product Operation ( rno, fname, lname (Renter)) x ( rno, no,comment (Viewing)) abab aaabbbaaabbb R SR x S

Union Operation Construct a list of all areas where there is either a branch or a property area (Branch) area (Property_for_rent) Area Sidcup Dyce Patrick Leigh dee Kilbern Hynland

15
Set Difference Operation Construct a list of all cities where there is a branch office but no properties city (Branch) - city (Property_for_rent) City Bristol

18
Views View: A dynamic result of one or more relational operation to produce another relation A view is a relation, but does not exist in storage Views are dynamic

19
Purpose of Views Hiding parts of the database from some users –Staff records without Salary attribute Same data can be seen by different users in different ways at the same time A view may be a join of two relations Order of columns may be changed
