ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de2 Overview Relational algebra, named perspective Aggregates and grouping SQL Integrity constraints

ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de3 Constant { { a 1 = v 11, …, a n = v 1n }, … …… { a 1 = v k1, …, a n = v kn } }

ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de4 Union Let R1, R2 be relations with the same attributes. R1 [ R2 = { t | t 2 R 1 or t 2 R 2 }

ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de5 Union, example AB ® 1 ® 2 ¯ 1 AB ® 1 ® 2 ¯ 1 ¯ 3 AB ® 2 ¯ 3 R1R1 R2R2 R 1 [ R 2

ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de6 Renaming Let R be a relation whose set of attributes is a 1,…,a n, c 1,…,c m Let b 1, …, b n be distinct attributes such that {b 1, …, b n } Å { c 1, …, c m } = ; Then ½ a 1 ! b 1, …, a n ! b n (R) = {{b 1 = v 1, …, b n =v n, c 1 =w 1, …, c m =w m } | {a 1 = v 1, …, a n =v n, c 1 =w 1, …, c m =w m } 2 R}

ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de7 Set difference Let R 1, R 2 be relatations with the same attributes. R 1 – R 2 = { t | t 2 R 1 and t R 2 }

ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de9 SQL SQL is based on set and relational operations with certain modifications and enhancements A typical SQL query has the form: select a_1, …, a_n from R_1, …, R_m where P This query is equivalent to relational algebra expression: ¼ a 1,…, a n ( ¾ P (R 1 £ … £ R m )) The result of an SQL query is a relation. Exceptions?

ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de10 Integrity constraints Domain constraints. Key constraints. Foreign key constraints. More general, defined constraints.

ISWeb - Information Systems & Semantic Web Steffen Staab staab@uni-koblenz.de11 Query language Allow one to define: Relation and database schemas; Relations through our relations; Integrity constraints; Updates.
