SE305 Database System Technology
This course is a first course in database systems for undergraduates at SJTU/CS. It covers the fundamantal concepts of modern database management including
database design, database languages and database system implementation.
It assumes only familiarity with basic data
structures, computer organization and a high level programming language such
as Java or C. The concepts and algorithm presented in this course are based
on commercial or experimental database systems. The idea is not to tie
these concepts to a particular database system but to present it in a general
setting. Most of the assignments and projects are done using Java/C and the
open source MySQL which is widely available. Topics covered in this course
include: relational databases, database design,
data storage and querying processing, transactions, system architecture,
data mining and information retrieval, and optionally, XML and a case study on
a particular database system.
