Definition of terms ...

The development of application programs to be associated with a database normally implies development by means of stuff like vb, c, c++, java and/or a host of other development tools and/or methodologies (such as OOP, etc).

The scope of such development in realtime applications usually can be typified into specific modules. Normally there is a core business or organisational activity module (eg: educational course management over terms, etc) which is then associated with a number of financial modules dependent upon the financial reporting requirements of the organisation (eg: AR, AP, GL, etc).

Normally, physically, the code associated with the above is physically loaded into:

a) the end-client-user locations
b) the database server directories (eg:dlls, etc)
c) the database itself (eg: stored procedures)

The above decribed environment I term the database application software environment. Is this reasonable? How is this environment defined by the academics?

In contrast, associated with the above development there must also be highly integrated and coordinated development of the underlying database. This development work is conducted internal to the database selected by the organisation (ie: rdbms vendor type such as DB2, oracle, sql server, mysql, etc).

This second environment I term the rdbms/dbms environment. Is this reasonable? How is this second environment defined by the academics? Received on Tue Dec 02 2003 - 00:16:16 CST
