41Software Maintenance Reverse Engineering Extract original design from spaghetti-like, undocumented code to make maintenance change requestAbstract meaningful design specifications that can be used by maintenance programmers to perform maintenance tasksReengineeringExamination and changing of a system to reconstitute it in form and functionalityReimplementationRestructuringRestructures code into standard control constructssequence, selection, repetition
42Data DesignDefine all the entities to be dealt with and the relationships between themTransform the conceptual design into logical design wherein all the views are combined and all the resulting data elements are defined and the data structure is syntactically and semantically determinedNormalize this logical design for mathematically minimized redundancy and maximized integrityTransform this logical design to a physical design where the underlying RDBMS, hardware, and use patterns are taken into accountDevelop the SQL DDL code specific to each RDBMS vendor’s product is generated
43Business Rules For Data Basic selection of what data elements are of interest, what are their characteristics (data type and acceptable range - also called syntactic structure)How they are related to, or dependent on, each other in a business sense (key, foreign key and referential constraint rule - also called the semantic structure)Data Integrity Rules
44Advantages of Data Analysis “slice and dice” dynamic query supportstandard high-level access language (SQL)minimum data redundancyself-protecting data integrityno insert, delete and update anomalies
45Relational ModelThe Relational Model for data design is the foundation of the relational database and the industry that produces the “engines” that run them.It puts data design (and data modeling) on a formal, mathematical footing.
46Relationship Typesa). One-to-one (1:1): means that an occurrence if one OT uniquely determines an occurrence of other OT - and vice-versab). One-to-many (1:n): means that an occurrence of one OT determines an occurrence of the other OT - but not vice-versac). Many-to-many (n:m):means that an occurrence of one OT can be related to many occurrences of other OT - and vice-versa
47Data RationalizationIdentification of data synonyms and homonyms across multiple and disparate data sources and the creation of a map that points back to their original sources.
48Data Access Gatewaysits between end users (usually in PC networks) and a legacy databaseaccepts data read requests (expressed as SQL statements)converts the requests to legacy access method instructionsprovides the resulting data to the usersdata flow is one-way read-only.
49Structured Data Analysis the functions or activities which are to be handled by the systemthe external entities which interact with the systemthe logical data stores, andthe data flows among all the the aboveData flow diagrams (DFD) are used to diagrammatically describe the elements.
50Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs) A method of documenting and visualizing a conceptual data model.
51Normalization The process based on the business rules for data a set of data elements (attributes) are arranged in a mathematically minimum set of tables (relations), within which all the attributes are dependent on a primary key attribute (the key).
52Normalization ModelThe SA/Normalization method is based on the use of decomposition rules, which enable one to decompose tables/relations.Database design starts with flat tables/relations, each of which is created out of a data stores in the DFDs and then decomposed into the normal form relations. No conceptual schema of the enterprise is created to express the semantics of its information structure.The SA/IA method is based on the use of grouping rules which map simple relationships in the binary-relationship data model onto normal form relationships.The relational model and the normalization method have been criticized for being too detailed to use at the initial design stage, and for lacking a semantic structure for making unambiguous choices in modeling the enterprise.The IA method incorporates a semantic model of the enterprise which captures its essential semantic features from which the normal form relations are derived.
53Conversion into Normalized Record Types For every data flow which either enters or emanates from a data store (in the leaf level DFDs), the integral data elements are identifiedFor every data store, a list of the data elements which are entering and emanating are drawn upThe dependencies among all the data elements are analyzed, and the normalization rules are applied in steps so that at every step a given relation is split into more “simple” relationsEvery relation has a key which consists of one or more data elementsEvery non-key data element functionally depends on that entire key and not on part of itNo non-key data element depends on any other non-key data element in the relation (there are no transitive dependencies)

55De-Normalization The process of selectively combining two or more normalized tables into one, ordecomposing one normalized table into two or more
56Part Description for Model for General Motors “Part #123 that is supplied by GM was assembled on bus 456 on May 28, 1996” is decomposed into the following elementary sentences:a). A part... is supplied by a manufacturer...b). A part... was assembled on a bus...c). The assembly [part*bus] was performed on a date...

60Data WarehouseAn intermediate, read-only store (usually based in a purchased RDBMS product) and the programs that manage it.Contains recent and summarized data extracted from across some or all of the legacy data systemsPresents a subject-based view
61Functional Dependency Mathematical term for the key relationship (using rational terminology) between data elements. A data element (attribute) that is functionally dependent on another data element (the key) will always exist in a relation (table) such that a unique value for the key will always “determine” or “locate” or “define a unique value of” the dependent.
62MetadataData about data that is generally extracted from an existing system or created for a new system and stored in a design repository for developers to use in maintaining or extending the system during its lifecycleMetadata refers to the table, attribute, and key definitions contained in the catalog of a relational database. It can also mean the business rules for data designed for a new design, or the business rules for data thought to be enforced in a legacy system (semantic data structure, sometimes called meta-data, or meta2 data).The actual syntactic and semantic data structure (not just what the documentation might say), including a complete synonym and homonym map, plus the business rules for data that are actually being enforced in the legacy system.
