Chapter 4 Relational Databases Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-1
Learning Objectives Explain the importance and advantages of databases. Describe the difference between database systems and file-based legacy systems. Explain the difference between logical and physical views of a database. Explain fundamental concepts of database systems such as DBMS, schemas, the data dictionary, and DBMS languages. Describe what a relational database is and how it organizes data. Create a set of well-structured tables to store data in a relational database. Perform simple queries using the Microsoft Access database. Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-2
Data Hierarchy Field Attributes about an entity Record Related group of fields File Related group of records Database Related group of files Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-3
Advantages of Database Systems Data Integration Files are logically combined and made accessible to various systems. Data Sharing With data in one place it is more easily accessed by authorized users. Minimizing Data Redundancy and Data Inconsistency Eliminates the same data being stored in multiple files, thus reducing inconsistency in multiple versions of the same data. Data Independence Data is separate from the programs that access it. Changes can be made to the data without necessitating a change in the programs and vice versa. Cross-Functional Analysis Relationships between data from various organizational departments can be more easily combined. Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-4
Database Terminology Database Management System (DBMS) Interface between software applications and the data in files. Database Administrator (DBA) Person responsible for maintaining the database Data Dictionary Information about the structure of the database Field names, descriptions, uses Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-5
Logical vs. Physical Physical View Depends on explicitly knowing: How is the data actually arranged in a file Where is the data stored on the computer Logical View A Schema separates storage of data from use of the data Unnecessary to explicitly know how and where data is stored. Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-6
Schemas Describe the logical structure of a database Conceptual Level Organization wide view of the data External Level Individual users view of the data Each view is a subschema Internal Level Describes how data are stored and accessed Description of: records, definitions, addresses, and indexes Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-7
DBMS Languages Data Definition Language (DDL) Builds the data dictionary Creates the database Describes the subschema Specifies record or field security constraints Data Manipulation Language (DML) Changes the content in the database Updates, insertions, and deletions Data Query Language (DQL) Enables the retrieval, sorting, and display of data from the database Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-8
Relational Database Relational data model represents the conceptual and external level schemas as if data are stored in tables. Table Each row, a tuple, contains data about one instance of an entity. This is equivalent to a record Each column contains data about one attribute of an entity. This is equivalent to a field Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-9
A Relational Table Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-10 Row (Record) Column (Field) Each row contains multiple attributes describing an instance of the entity. In this case, inventory. Same type of data
Attributes Primary Key An attribute or combination of attributes that can be used to uniquely identify a specific row (record) in a table. Foreign Key An attribute in one table that is a primary key in another table. Used to link the two tables Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-11
Database Design Errors If database is not designed properly data errors can occur. Update Anomaly Changes to existing data are not correctly recorded. Due to multiple records with the same data attributes Insert Anomaly Unable to add a record to the database. Delete Anomaly Removing a record also removes unintended data from the database. Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-12
Design Requirements for Relational Database 1.Every column must be single valued. 2.Primary keys must contain data (not null). 3.Foreign keys must contain the same data as the primary key in another table. 4.All other attributes must identify a characteristic of the table identified by the primary key. Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education 4-13
Normalizing Relational Databases Initially, one table is used for all the data in a database. Following rules, the table is decomposed into multiple tables related by: Primary key–foreign key integration Decomposed set of tables are in third normal form (3NF).
