First steps: a 1-hour tutorial in DB analysis and design

Jean-Luc Hainaut, Jean Henrard, Jean-Marc Hick, Didier Roland

Research output: Other contribution


This (very) short tutorial is intended to introduce the first-time user to the basics of database analysis, database design and SQL generation through the DB-MAIN CASE tool. The database to build must represent facts described in an interview document, through which the manager of a small library explains how things works. More practically, this walkthrough explains how the concepts underlying a simple text that states user requirements can be translated into a fully operational SQL computer program that builds the database structures that meet these requirements.
