Summary

Unlike other database texts that merely describe database technology, this text shows how to use database technology to meet specific application needs. The authors provide a sound step-by-step approach to Object-Oriented Development of Database Applications. They've taken their industry-leading object method-the Object Modeling Technique (OMT) and have fine-tuned it into something that easily leads to successful systems.

Features

Would you like to cover object-oriented design and database applications in the same course?
Systematically shows you how to use object-oriented principles to design and implement database applications.
Written by authors of the ground-breaking book, Object-Oriented Modeling and Design.
Foreword provided by James Rumbaugh.
Introduces many new concepts and ideas that complement the presentation of the OMT methodology.
Features a threaded case study that is analyzed, designed, and fully implemented for one database manager. The full implementation for the case study will be available on the web.
Uses the new Unified Modeling Language notation to leverage advances in programming language applications.
Covers relational databases, object-oriented databases, and files.
Guides readers through a pedagogical framework composed of:

  • Key concepts at the end of each chapter.
  • Summaries of important ideas at the end of each chapter.
  • Numerous exercises that reinforce important concepts and principles.
  • Selective references to literature.
