Database Systems and their architecture, query languages, transactions, object-relational mapping

Study targets:

The course is aimed at providing students with the basic course of database system design. After the completion of the course, the student is able to create conceptual and logical models, he is able to actively use SQl query language. Further on, he is able to design database applications in Java using JDBC and JPA APIs.

Course outlines:

1. Basic information system architectures (client-server, multi-tier, thin client), analysis of information flows, UML use-case diagrams
2. Basic data modeling, E-R diagrams, relational model, database access API, JDBC
3. Integrity constraints, referential integrity, normal forms
4. Querying in relational databases, SQL basics, referential integrity in SQL
5. Advanced queries, aggregation functions, nested queries
6. Cursor, view, stored procedures, triggers
7. Transactions, their serializability, locking, isolation levels, transaction deadlock, its prevention and resolution
8. UML class diagrams, sequence diagrams
9. Object-relational mapping, object persistence and access API (JPA)
10. Design of multithreaded applications and guidelines for their implementation, UML activity diagrams
11. Basic design patterns
12. Overview of component architectures (CORBA, COM, EJB) and communication protocols (RPC, RMI, IIORB, JMS, http, web services)
13. Design of a distributed system with component architecture, web-based interface
14. Enterprise applications and major design problems (load balancing, data replication)

Exercises outline:

1. Organization of labs, safety rules, making up working groups
2. Basics of relational modeling
3. Conceptual model creation
4. Application interface of a database, connection methods
5. Logical data model creation
6. Interactive query composition
7. Practical examples of transactional processing significance
8. Realization of selected data model in the relational database environment
9. Object-relational mapping
10. Autonomous work
11. Autonomous work
12. Autonomous work
13. Submission and presentation of the working group results
14. Submission and presentation of the working group results, credits
