Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal of this course is to provide extended informations about database technology to bachelor students. Students will be able to use the SQL query language in regard to multi-user access to a DBMS and efficiency of the query evaluation.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs
Project work


The main topics of this course are as follows: multi-user access to a DBMS (transactions, locking, transactions in SQL and a host language environment), physical implementation of a DBMS (data structures and algorithms applied in a DBMS) and query evaluation (query evaluation plans, optimization of the query evaluation). These topics will be presented for a DBMS like Oracle and SQL Server. The goal of this course is to provide extended informations about query evaluation. A student will use this knowledge during an implementation of a real information system.
