According to the Authors, ” The history of database research over the past 30 years is one of exceptional productivity that has led to the database system becoming arguably the most important development in the field of software engineering. The database is now the underlying framework of the information system, and has fundamentally changed the way many organizations operate. In particular, the developments in this technology over the last few years have produced systems that are more powerful and more intuitive to use. This has resulted in database systems becoming increasingly available to a wider variety of users. Unfortunately, the apparent simplicity of these systems has led to users creating databases and applications without the necessary knowledge to produce an effective and efficient system. And so the ‘software crisis’ or, as it is sometimes referred to, the ‘software depression’ continues. 

The original stimulus for this book came from the authors’ work in industry, providing consultancy on database design for new software systems or, as often as not, resolving inadequacies with existing systems. Added to this, the authors’ move to academia brought similar problems from different users – students. The objectives of this book, therefore, are to provide a textbook that introduces the theory behind databases as clearly as possible and, in particular, to provide a methodology for database design that can be used by both technical and non-technical readers.

The major changes in the fourth edition are as follows.

  • Extended treatment of normalization (original chapter has been divided into two).
  • Streamlined methodology for database design using UML notation for ER diagrams.
  • New section on use of other parts of UML within analysis and design, covering use cases, sequence, collaboration, state chart, and activity diagrams.
  • New section on enumeration of execution strategies within query optimization for both centralized and distributed DBMSs.
  • Coverage of OMG specifications including the Common Warehouse Metamodel (CWM) and the Model Driven Architecture (MDA).
  • Extended treatment of XML, SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 (including the revised Data Model and Formal Semantics), SQL:2003 SQL/XML standard, storage of XML in relational databases, and native XML databases.
  • Extended treatment of OLAP and data mining including the functionality of SQL:2003 and the CRISP-DM model.
  • Coverage updated to Oracle9i (overview of Oracle10g) and Microsoft Office Access 2003.
