Linking Multiple Databases: Term Project Using "Sentences" DBMS.
King, Ronald S.; Rainwater, Stephen B.
This paper describes a methodology for use in teaching an introductory Database Management System (DBMS) course. Students master basic database concepts through the use of a multiple component project implemented in both relational and associative data models. The associative data model is a new approach for designing multi-user, Web-enabled database operations. Unique capabilities of the associative data model include: omnicompetent programming, feature programming, instance schema processing, and schema aggregation. Potential applied research and application development as related to the associative data model and "Sentences," a multi-user, Web-enabled DBMS, are also addressed. (Author/AEF)
