The third edition of Mannino's Database Design, Application Development, and Administration text provides the foundation for the advanced study of individual database management systems, electronic commerce applications, and enterprise computing. The fundamental database technologies of each processing environment are presented, and each technology's relationship to the advances of e-commerce and enterprise computing is discussed.
In addition, Mannino teaches students how to apply relational databases in solving basic and advanced database problems and cases. A wealth of worked-out examples using Access and Oracle database applications and a rich number of student projects that require manipulation of sample databases build student skills via hands-on work. Students also learn how to design database applications and support their designs with Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs). Mannino includes ERDs in the text and includes a software design tool, ER-Assistant, bundled with the text.
