Hi if you will tolerate a post from a newbie to this group (though not a newbie to Oracle).

I've often thought it is really surprising how tightly the Oracle concept of table still conforms to the concepts presented in Codd's original paper "A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks"(CACM, vol 13, no. 6).

So closely in fact that my thought is to simply point to this article and claim that for all intents and purposes that IS still the concept of table that Oracle (and every other modern RDBMS) uses.

I hesitate to provide a direct link because of possible copyright issues, (though for a paper from 1970 there is probably no problem!)...but just google the title and you'll find a copy .... Received on Sun Oct 05 2008 - 17:20:45 CDT
