DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

CSE3DMS

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject covers the important knowledge and concepts of database management systems. The techniques of various indexes including B+Trees, Bitmap, static and dynamic hashing indexes used for database organisations are studied. The algorithms for query processing and optimisation to improve performance of the database systems are detailed. Principles and theories of database management such as transaction management, serializability, recoverability, concurrency control algorithms and recovery techniques are covered. This subject is also including the advanced database programming SQL such as advanced procedures, functions, transactions, Oracle optimizer, execution plans for query optimization, hint, auto-trace and indexes etc. Physical database design issues and tuning techniques are extensively studied and discussed.
