"Database Management Systems" provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the fundamentals of database systems. This text has rapidly become one of the leading texts in the field due to its coherent explanations and practical flavor. The new edition has been reorganized to allow more flexibility in the way the course is taught. Now, instructors can easily choose whether they would like to teach a course that emphasizes database application development or a course that emphasizes database systems issues. More applications and examples have been added throughout the book. These include more SQL examples and more Oracle examples. There will also be two new chapters on internet applications. "Database Management Systems" is accompanied by an extensive website. Among other things, it includes PowerPoints, Solutions, additional Oracle exercises, and minibase software.
