Teaching methods

Project work


The course is a continuation of Fundamentals of Database Systems course. It extends the SQL language. Practical application will be demonstrated through the Oracle system. The course specifies the features of object and object- relational database systems. It also involves the physical data structures explanation; e. g. the B trees indexes and the bitmap ones.
