In the above example, it retrieves a particular Department record occurrence. Multiple copies of same data do not exist in different stages of updating. For example, consider a typical bill-of-material case of main-parts and sub-parts. Each page has a unique page number.

The Coverage record is a manual member of the Emp-Coverage set. Implicit record locks are only maintained for run units operating under central version. There are various ways to access the data. Skill record has an index built on skill-name apart from CALC key.

There may be many Employee records all having the same last-name value. A supplier supplies many parts and a part is supplied by many suppliers. Any unauthorised and illegal usage will be prosecuted. The name must begin with an alphabetic character. Codes used to represent the linkage options are as follows: Please refer to Employee database in Appendix A. Supplier and Parts have a one-to-many relationship with Quantity. The owner record and the member record both are the same record type.

So, retrieval of any of the two record types, Parts or Quantity, changes the set currencies of both the sets.

Area currency is S1. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Pointers control flexibility in accessing records within a set. This results in a multilevel hierarchy. Before Insertion After Insertion: Those users who stayed with IDMS were primarily interested in its high performance, not in its relational capabilities.

The owner record type is same for both the sets. The indexes move from the end of the page backward into the page body as more records are placed on the page. The db-key of the most recent record occurrence of each area accessed by the program. Different quantities of a sub-part are used in construction of many different main-parts. It is quite possible for two record types to participate in multiple one-to-many relationships with one another.


Application Development Productivity 1. The index set characteristics are shown along side the arrow representing the indexed set in the Bachman diagram.

Central version always maintains record locks for run units executing in shared update mode. The use of the VIA location mode tends to group together in close physical proximity records that are likely to be accessed together and minimizes the number of disk accesses needed to retrieve all the records that belong to a given set occurrence.

Standard approach for error handling in the program: For each many-to-many relationship that we identify among a set of entities in real world applications, we will almost always identify additional attributes that are not associated with either of the two entities alone, but are associated with the intersection between the two entity types.

In modifying a record occurrence we generally perform the following steps: Establish run unit currency for the specified member record. Compiler-directive statements control compilation of a program.

The first duplicate record encountered in the next direction is always the most recently stored duplicate record.

Department D1 Employee E1 Employee E3 Employee E2 The particular record occurrence that this statement retrieves depends on which record occurrence in the set is established as current of the Dept-Employee set; it always retrieves the record that follows the record occurrence that is current of the Dept-Employee set in the next direction.

The program displays courses C14 and C The owner record occurrence points to the first occurrence of the member record type, that occurrence points to the next member record occurrence, and so on until the last member record occurrence is encountered.


To determine if a record participates as a member in a set, perform the following steps: Add a new occurrence in Expertise record.

A connect option specifies whether or not a member record is automatically connected to a set occurrence when it is added to the database. Usually the records are cundamentals on the same physical page as the owner. Performing an area sweep in the reverse direction: This linkage option allows access to member records in a set occurrence in both the next and prior directions and direct access from a member record to the owner record.

In local mode, concurrent updates are prevented by setting locks on entire areas. Application programs generally work only with the data element values that are stored in the data portion.

On a lower level we are concerned with software, where we describe the logical structure of the database that we are using to represent information about entities in the database.

A main-part consists of many sub-parts and a sub-part belongs to or takes part in construction of many main-parts. Record locks are never maintained for run units operating in local mode. This is implemented by defining two different one-to-many relationships between the Customer record type and the Invoice record type, with each being implemented by a different set type.

Set Membership Options Select from the given record types Next screen: Scan for next subject should have started from S1 onwards, but it started from C14 onwards.
