Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A database application is a computer program whose primary purpose is entering and retrieving information from a computer-managed database. Early examples of database applications were accounting systems and airline reservations systems, such as SABRE, developed starting in 1957. A characteristic of modern database applications is that they facilitate simultaneous updates and queries from multiple users. Systems in the 1970s might have accomplished this by having each user in front of a 3270 terminal to a mainframe computer. By the mid-1980s it was becoming more common to give each user a personal computer and have a program running on that PC that connected to a database server.show more
