2 database software

  1. 1. Database Software CIS-182
  2. 2. Database Connections • Database applications typically separate the user interface and data management – A connection provides access to data, describing how to read and where to find data • Client/Server: Data requests are passed from application to data server (for example from Access to Jet database engine and data file) • N-tiered Applications: Data requests are passed through several layers between application and data server
  3. 3. Common Database Engines • Jet: Database engine for Microsoft Access and Data Access Objects/Controls. Oriented to small, local applications or limited number of users • Servers: Typically used as a database server (provide relational data to another program) and as a warehouse (data may not be structured in tables) – Commercial: SQL Server, Oracle, DB2 – Open Source: MySQL, Postgre
  4. 4. SQL Server • Microsoft SQL Server has two versions that are commonly in use – SQL Server 2008 – SQL Server 2005 • Either version is suitable for CIS-182 • Other database software can be used for CIS-182 – no support is available from faculty or staff and work cannot be done on-campus – Access does not directly offer all the capabilities needed for CIS-182
  5. 5. SQL Server Editions • SQL Server is available in different editions – Each edition is targeted to a specific use or environment • Express Edition is a free download and suitable for CIS-182 – Make sure to download Management Studio Express • Developer Edition is available for free download after the first week and registration with Microsoft and also suitable for CIS-182 – www.dreamspark.com provides registered students with access to all MS developer tools, including SQL Server
