Providing a motivational overview of database management theory, this book focuses on the applications of databases that most readers will use in the real world. The traditional database theory is introduced with a focus on using this theory to build database and transaction processing applications. Part One presents core database theory in the context of small-scale, single-user applications. Part Two concentrates on transaction processing and advanced topics in databases. To illustrate both the database and transaction processing concepts, a case study is carried throughout the book, with the technical aspects of the chapters applied to the examples. This application is used as a basis for illustrating most of the issues of database design and query processing.
