An introduction to database systems by C. J Date( Book )

337 editions published between 1819 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 5,204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a solid grounding in the foundations of database technology and gives some ideas of how the field is likely to develop in the future. Emphasizing insight and understanding rather than formalisms, Chris Date has divided the book into six parts: Basic Concepts, The Relational Model, Database Design, Transaction Management, Further Topics, and Object and Object/Relational Databases. This comprehensive introduction to databases reflects the latest developments and advances in the field of database systems. Throughout the book, there are numerous worked examples and exercises for the reader--with answers--as well as an extensive set of annotated references
Temporal data and the relational model : a detailed investigation into the application of interval and relation theory to the problem of temporal database management by C. J Date( )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

P Temporal database systems are systems that provide special support for storing, querying, and updating historical and/or future data. Current DBMSs provide essentially no temporal features at all, but this situation is likely to change soon for a variety of reasons; in fact, temporal databases are virtually certain to become important sooner rather than later, in the commercial world as well as in academia. This book provides an in-depth description of the foundations and principles on which those temporal DBMSs will be built. These foundations and principles are firmly rooted in the relational model of data; thus, they represent an evolutionary step, not a revolutionary one, and they will stand the test of time. This book is arranged in three parts and a set of appendixes: * Preliminaries: Provides a detailed review of the relational model, and an overview of the Tutorial D language. * Laying the Foundations: Explains basic temporal data problems and introduces fundamental constructs and operators for addressing those problems. * Building on the Foundations: Applies the material of the previous part to issues of temporal database design, temporal constraints, temporal query and update, and much more. * Appendixes: Include annotated references and bibliography, implementation considerations, and other topics. Key features: * Describes a truly relational approach to the temporal data problem. * Addresses implementation as well as model issues. * Covers recent research on new database design techniques, a new normal form, new relational operators, new update operators, a new approach to the problem of "granularity," support for "cyclic point types," and other matters. * Includes review questions and exercises in every chapter. * Suitable for both reference and tutorial purposes

The relational database dictionary : a comprehensive glossary of relational terms and concepts, with illustrative examples by C. J Date( )

47 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As more and more people turn to databases for both large systems and small web-based applications, misunderstandings arise about the precise meaning of terms like "join", "instantiation", "view", and others. Those misunderstandings can affect design and programming that lead to problems down the road. "The Relational Database Dictionary" is exactly what designers, programmers, students, and database administrators (DBAs) need, a single source where they can find precise definitions. Authored by C.J. Date, a respected expert who is widely regarded as the developer of relational database technology while at IBM, this pocket-sized dictionary is the definitive glossary of terms and concepts used with relational databases such as Oracle products, IBM's DB2, Microsoft's SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. "The Relational Database Dictionary" provides structure and clarity that will help build proficiency and accuracy in working with today's relational databases. There is no other quick reference of this type available
SQL and relational theory : how to write accurate SQL code by C. J Date( )

40 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

SQL is full of difficulties and traps for the unwary. You can avoid them if you understand relational theory, but only if you know how to put the theory into practice. In this insightful book, the author explains relational theory in depth, and demonstrates through numerous examples and exercises how you can apply it directly to your use of SQL. This second edition includes new material on recursive queries, "missing information" without nulls, new update operators, and topics such as aggregate operators, grouping and ungrouping, and view updating. If you have a modest-to-advanced background in SQL, you'll learn how to deal with a host of common SQL dilemmas

25 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Database in Depth, author and well-known database authority Chris Date lays out the fundamentals of the relational model. Don't let a lack to formal education in database theory hold you back. Instead, let Chris's clear explanation of relational concepts, set theory, the difference between model and implementation, relational algebra, normalization, and much more set you apart and well above the competition when it comes to getting work done with a relational database."--Jacket

Relational theory for computer professionals by C. J Date( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All of today{u2019}s mainstream database products support the SQL language, and relational theory is what SQL is supposed to be based on. But are those products truly relational? Sadly, the answer is no. This book shows you what a real relational product would be like, and how and why it would be so much better than what{u2019}s currently available. With this unique book, you will: Learn how to see database systems as programming systems Get a careful, precise, and detailed definition of the relational model Explore a detailed analysis of SQL from a relational point of view There are literally hundreds of books on relational theory or the SQL language or both. But this one is different. First, nobody is more qualified than Chris Date to write such a book. He and Ted Codd, inventor of the relational model, were colleagues for many years, and Chris{u2019}s involvement with the technology goes back to the time of Codd{u2019}s first papers in 1969 and 1970. Second, most books try to use SQL as a vehicle for teaching relational theory, but this book deliberately takes the opposite approach. Its primary aim is to teach relational theory as such. Then it uses that theory as a vehicle for teaching SQL, showing in particular how that theory can help with the practical problem of using SQL correctly and productively. Any computer professional who wants to understand what relational systems are all about can benefit from this book. No prior knowledge of databases is assumed
