From the Author
Unique blend of logical + physical database design concepts
In writing this book, we had two goals. First, we tried to cover a broad range of data modeling topics from the basics to advanced modeling techniques including recursion and generic modeling. But, this is not just a theoretical book. Equal attention is given to database design issues. We have included the topics of table design, naming conventions, and datatype domains. In addition, the book discusses Oracle8 relational and object-relational design in detail, including sample relational as well as object-relational SQL code for every concept presented.
This combination of logical and physical database design topics is what makes the book unique. In our company, Dulcian, Inc., we have designed and implemented many database systems. In Oracle8 Design Using UML Object Modeling, we have distilled our theoretical philosophy of database design as well as including practical information about how we implement these designs in real world systems.
Over the last few years, there has been a steady movement towards generic, object-oriented techniques in database design. Simultaneously, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) has emerged as the standard for object-oriented analysis and design. Therefore all modeling examples are shown using both traditional Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs) and UML.
Top Customer Reviews
The authors have provided Oracle Developers and modelers with a book that addressees not only the background and issues associated with object and object-relational modeling but suggests numerous ways to incorporate these concepts into your application designs.
The book provides an excellent introduction to the world of relational and object-relational design. There is an appropriate amount of material in the beginning of the book to bring you up to speed if you are not familiar with relational modeling concepts (which most of us are) and object modeling concepts using UML (which most of us aren't). If you have to learn one object notation methodology, UML (Unified Modeling Language) is the one you should learn. A chapter on UML introduces you using the notation, which is then used throughout remainder of the book.
These basic concepts are then quickly built upon . The authors next walk you through basic object database construction looking at such key concepts as class/entity definitions, logical and physical naming conventions and dealing with domains and list of values.
These concepts are further extended to examine the relationships between entities and classes. More advanced concepts like recursive structures, cyclical structures and N-ary relationships are explained in detail with working examples to show you how to put these concepts into action.Read more ›
I was particularly pleased with the practical tips presented.
Conclusion -- Better, treat yourself with a nice dinner instead of this junk, unless you absolutely have to have this dull book.
