  1. Database refactoring

    Refimprove date May 2009 A database refactoring is a simple change to a database schema that improves its design while retaining both its behavioral and informational semantics. A database refactoring is conceptually more difficult than a code refactoring code refactorings only need to maintain behavioral semantics while database refactorings also must maintain informational semantics. ref Scott Ambler and Pramod Sadalage 2006 . Refactoring databases Evolutionary database design . Addison Wesley. ISBN 978 0321293534 ref The process of database refactoring is the act of applying database refactorings to evolve an existing database schema database refactoring is a core practice of evolutionary database design . You refactor a database schema for one of two reasons to develop the schema in an evolutionary manner in parallel with the evolutionary design of the rest of your system or to fix design problems with an existing legacy database schema Database refactoring does not change the way data is interpreted or used and does not fix computer bug bug s or add new functionality. Every single refactoring to a database leaves the system in a working state, thus not causing maintenance lags, provided the meaningful data exists in the production environment. An example of database refactoring would be splitting an aggregate table into two different tables in the process of database normalization Tools LiquiBase See also Database testing Refactoring Test driven development Unit testing References Reflist External links http presentations ambler database refactoring Database refactoring presentation at by Scott W.

Database Systems 3rd Edition. Palgrave, Basingstoke, UK. ISBN 1 4039 1601 2 ref A database is an organised pool of logically related data. Data is stored within the data structures of the database. A DBMS is a suite of computer software providing the interface between users and a database or databases. A DBMS is a shell which surrounds a database or series of databases and through which all interactions take place with the database. The interactions catered for by most existing DBMS fall into four main groups Data Definition. Defining new data structures for a database, removing data structures from the database, modifying the structure of existing data. Data Maintenance. Inserting new data into existing data structures, updating data in existing data structures, deleting data from existing data structures. Data Retrieval. Querying existing data by end users and extracting data for use by application programs. Data Control. Creating and monitoring users of the database, restricting access to data in the database and monitoring the performance of databases. Both a database and its DBMS conform to the principles of a particular data model. ref Tsitchizris, D. C. and F. H. Lochovsky 1982 . Data Models.

  1. Database theory

    Database theory encapsulates a broad range of topics related to the study and research of the theoretical realm of database s and database management system s. Theoretical aspects of data management include, among other areas, the foundations of query languages, computational complexity and expressive power of queries, finite model theory , database design theory, dependency theory database theory dependency theory , foundations of concurrency control and database recovery , deductive database s, temporal database temporal and spatial database s, real time database s, managing uncertain data and probabilistic database s, and Web data. Most research work has traditionally been based on the relational model , since this model is usually considered the simplest and most foundational model of interest. Corresponding results for other data models, such as object oriented or semi structured model s, or, more recently, graph data models and XML , are often derivable from those for the relational model. A central focus of database theory is on understanding the complexity and power of query languages and their connection to logic . Starting from relational algebra and first order logic which are equivalent by Codd s theorem and the insight that important queries such as graph reachability are not expressible in this language, more powerful language based on logic programming and fixpoint logic such as datalog were studied. Another focus was on the foundations of query optimization and data integration . Here most work studied conjunctive query conjunctive queries , which admit query ... in the area are the ACM Symposium on Principles of Database Systems PODS and the International Conference on Database Theory ICDT .

  1. Database engine

    unreferenced date August 2007 A database engine or storage engine is the underlying software component that a database management system DBMS uses to create, read, update and delete CRUD data from a database . Most database management systems include their own application programming interface API that allows the user to interact with their underlying engine without going through the user interface of the DBMS. Many of the modern DBMS support multiple database engines within the same database. For example, MySQL supports InnoDB as well as MyISAM .

  1. Current database

    A current database is a conventional database that stores data that is valid now . For example, if a user inserts John Smith into the Staff table of a current database, this asserts that the fact is valid now and until it is subsequently deleted. By contrast, a temporal database qualifies each row with a valid time stamp , valid time period or valid time interval . For example, we can assert the fact that John Smith was a member of staff during the period 1 June 2001 and now . Current databases are the most common type of database in use today.
