Example text

Sharing of data In a file-based approach (the predecessor to the DBMS approach), typically files are owned by the people or departments that use them. On the other hand, the database belongs to the entire organization and can be shared by all authorized users. In this way, more users share more of the data. Furthermore, new applications can build on the existing data in the database and add only data that is not currently stored, rather than having to define all data requirements again. The new applications can also rely on the functions provided by the DBMS, such as data definition and manipulation, and concurrency and recovery control, rather than having to provide these functions themselves.

It’s also possible for users to specify additional constraints that the data must satisfy. For example, if StayHome has a rule that a member can only rent a maximum of 10 videos at any one time, then the user must be able to specify this rule and expect the DBMS to enforce it. In this case, it should not be possible for a member to rent a video if the number of videos the member currently has rented is 10. Unfortunately, the level of support for business rules varies from system to system. We’ll discuss the implementation of business rules in Chapters 12 and 18.

When we analyze the organization’s information needs, we attempt to identify the important objects that need to be represented in the database and the logical relationships between these objects. The methodology we’ll present for database design will give you guidelines for identifying these important objects and their logical relationships. 2 The Database Management System (DBMS) DBMS A software system that enables users to define, create, and maintain the database and also provides controlled access to this database.
