A Second Course in Database Management Systems: a Rationale and a Proposed Course Outline
A second course in Database management Systems is needed to help provide the competencies and skills needed by entry-level systems analyst or programmers. This course is about understanding and developing application logic that brings the Web and databases together. The course introduces a number of the different approaches to integrating DBMSs into the web environment including CGI, server extensions, Java, Scripting languages, Active Server Pages, Oracle's Universal Data Server. The author taught the course many times as an elective course concentrating on using MySQL, an open source DBMS known for its suitability to applications that require speed but low resource overheads. The main scripting language used in the course is PHP, which is best known for its function libraries that interact with more than fifteen relational database systems and the web environment. Universities who offer this course are certainly on the right track because information technology recruiters admit that graduates are difficult to find who have sufficient knowledge in Web Database applications.
