Six-Step Relational Database Design™ (Second Edition)

(86 votes, average 4.64 out of 5)

Six-Step Relational Database Design™ bridges the gaps between database theory, database modeling, and database implementation and should be used as a handbook for students and professionals in the software-development field. The technique described in this book can be used by students for quickly developing relational databases for their applications, and by professionals for developing sturdy, reliable, and accurate relational database models for their software applications.

Six-Step Relational Database Design (Second Edition)

The second edition of Six-Step Relational Database Design™ contains a new chapter on implementation that goes through the steps necessary to implement the designs on a relational database management system, clearly relating the design to implementation and database theory. And like the first edition, it uses three case studies that start with a statement of the problem by the client, then goes through the six steps necessary to create a reliable and accurate data model of the client's business requirements.

Topics covered include ACID compliance, normalization, cascade updates and cascade deletes, indexes, and data types, with each of these topic areas describing the necessary implementation considerations. In addition, questions are also included at the end of each of the six steps to test your knowledge and understanding of the technique.
