Students taking database courses want to know how they'll apply the material to their careers. Database Management: With Web Site Development Applications presents databases in a way that is relevant to today's business environment by applying this information to a world dominated by the Internet. The book discusses basic databases concepts, as well as, how databases are used to support Web sites and organizations. This is the perfect book for students in Information Systems and Information Technology. The book provides a complete overview of the core database concepts for the design, creation, and manipulation of relational data. This material is discussed in the context of how databases are used in business. A running case study brings to life the basic concepts in the context of a video rental database. In this case study, Big Hit Video Inc., readers dissect an existing database to learn about database design, SQL, and the Entity-Relationship model. A second running case study, BigHit Online, allows students to apply database concepts by building an online video store one step at a time. Each chapter concludes with a Case in Point that applies the material from that chapter to BigHit Online. This case study follows the steps of the development process and helps students understand how design decisions that they make early effect what they do later on. The entire BigHit Online system is available on the Web with full source code and sample SQL Server database. After complete coverage of important database concepts, the book discusses how to develop dynamic Web sites with Web applications that interact with databases. Students learn principles of using HTML and CSS to display database information and learn how to design an interactive Web site. They implement their Web sites using SQL Server, JavaScript, Active Server Pages, and HTML. All of this material is accompanied by extensive examples and working Web sites.
