Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Programming experience (in Java) is a prerequisite, as is basic mathematical maturity, and a course in data structures. Dispensations can only be permitted with the permission of the course instructor.

Aim

Databases are a ubiquitous feature of the information technology society, and most people have come in contact with them, either directly while using the world wide web, or indirectly through banks, the tax office, etc. A course on database systems is therefore essential to a well-rounded education in computer science.

Goal

By the end of the course the student should know how to design and use databases as an end user, as an application programmer and as a database administrator.

Content

The course covers the basic principles of database systems, particularly as seen by users, application programmers and database administrators. Laboratory exercises develop these topics. Apart from paper exercises, they also include programming in SQL, as seen by a user querying or modifying an existing database, by a database designer, and by an application programmer invoking SQL from a host language.

Other topics are covered only theoretically: storage and search techniques, query optimisation and transaction management. Thus the course will not give the student any practice in implementing a database management system, but will give an understanding of what facilities are usually offered, and what difficulties arise in providing them.

The course is thus a typical first course in database systems, and occupies a traditional place in the curriculum.

Organisation

Laboratories

0. SQL querying/modifying existing database
1. Designing a database
2. Implementing the above database
3. Putting this database on the WWW with various front ends

Literature

Information about literature will be given on the course home-page before the start of the course.

Examination

Written exam and passed laboration. Alternative modes of examination can occur.
