For Database Systems and Database Design and Application courses offered at the junior, senior and graduate levels in Computer Science departments. Written by well-known computer scientists, this introduction to database systems offers a comprehensive approach, focusing on database design, database use, and implementation of database applications and database management systems. The first half of the book provides in-depth coverage of databases from the point of view of the database designer, user, and application programmer. It covers the latest database standards SQL:1999, SQL/PSM, SQL/CLI, JDBC, ODL, and XML, with broader coverage of SQL than most other texts. The second half of the book provides in-depth coverage of databases from the point of view of the DBMS implementor. It focuses on storage structures, query processing, and transaction management. The book covers the main techniques in these areas with broader coverage of query optimization than most other texts, along with advanced topics including multidimensional and bitmap indexes, distributed transactions, and information integration techniques. Resources: Author Website http://infolab.stanford.edu/~ullman/dscb.html From the Back Cover Hector Garcia-Molina, Jeffrey D. Ullman, and Jennifer Widom, well-known computer scientists at Stanford University, have written an introduction to database systems with a comprehensive approach. The first half of the book provides in-depth coverage of databases from the point of view of the database designer, user, and application programmer. It covers the latest database standards SQL-1999, SQL/PSM, SQL/CLI, JDBC, ODL, and XML, with broader coverage of SQL than most other texts. The second half of the book provides in-depth coverage of databases from the point of view of the DBMS implementor. It focuses on management, covering the principal techniques in these areas with broader coverage of query optimization than most other texts. Advanced topics include multidimensional and bitmap indexes, distributed transactions, and information integration techniques. This comprehensive book is valuable either as an academic textbook or as a professional reference book. NOTEWORTHY FEATURES Offers a readable presentation with engaging, real-world examples. Includes aspects of SQL programming not found in some other texts: SQL/PSM (persistent stored modules), JDBC (Java interface), and SQL/CLI (ODBC, or open database connectivity). Introduces both object-oriented design, through the ODMG standard ODL, and object-relational design from the SQL-99 standard. Provides extensive coverage of query processing and query optimization, supported by an extended relational algebra that is designed to match the real features of SQL. Covers information integration, including warehousing, mediators, OLAP, data cubes, and data-mining techniques. Explains many important, specialized topics, such as error-correction in RAID disks, bitmap indexes, use of data statistics, and pointer swizzling.
