Introduction to Databases.


A database is a collection of Data (Information).  Examples of databases, which we use in our daily life, is  an Attendance Register, Telephone Directory, Muster Rule.

Database Management System(DBMS): A database management system is a collection of programs written to manage a database. That is, it acts as a interface between user and database.


A Database Management System based on Relational Data Model is known as Relational Database Management System (RDBMS).

 Relational Data Model was developed by Dr. E.F. CODD. He developed the relational data model by taking the concept from Relational Algebra in  June - 1970.

Relational Data Model has some 12 Rules which are named after Codd as Codd Rules. According to Codd a package can be called as RDBMS only if it satisfies the Codd Rules.


Oracle is an Object-Relational Database Management System. It is the leading RDBMS vendor worldwide. Nearly half of RDBMS  worldwide market is owned by Oracle. 


Every Oracle Database Contains Logical and Physical Structures. Logical Structures are tablespaces, Schema objects, extents and segments. Physical Structures are Datafiles, Redo Log Files, Control File.

A database is divided into logical storage units called tablespaces, which group related logical structures together. Each Tablespace in turn consists of one are more datafiles.

Oracle database

In relational database system all the information is stored in form of tables.  A table consists of rows and columns

Table described

All the tables and other objects in Oracle are stored in tablespace logically, but physically they are stored in the datafiles associated with the tablespace.

Every Oracle database has a set of two or more redo log files. The set of redo log files for a database is collectively known as the database's redo log. A redo log is made up of redo entries (also called redo records).

The primary function of the redo log is to record all changes made to data. If a failure prevents modified data from being permanently written to the datafiles, the changes can be obtained from the redo log so work is never lost.

Every Oracle database has a control file. A control file contains the database name and locations of all datafiles and redo log files.

Every Oracle database also has a Parameter File. Parameter file contains the name of the Database, Memory Settings and Location of Control file.
