For Database Systems and Database Design and Application courses offered at the junior, senior and graduate levels in Computer Science departments.

Written by well-known computer scientists, this accessible and succinct introduction to database systems focuses on database design and use.
The authors provide in-depth coverage of databases from the point of view of the database designer, user, and application programmer, leaving implementation for later courses. It covers the latest database standards: SQL: 1999, SQL/PSM, SQL/CLI, JDBC, ODL, and XML, with broader coverage of SQL than most other texts.
