Sample text

All INSERT commands adding values to the two DECIMALS5_2 and DECIMALS3_0 fields will fail because decimal length, or overall field length specifications for the datatypes have not been adhered to. Database Modeling Building Blocks ❑ Floating points — A floating-point number is just as the name implies, where the decimal point “floats freely” anywhere within the number. In other words, the decimal point can appear anywhere in the number. Floating-point values can have any number of digits both before and after the decimal point, even none on either side.

Datatypes can be divided into three separate sections: ❑ Simple datatypes — These are datatypes applying a pattern or value limitation on a single value such as a number. ❑ Complex datatypes — These include any datatypes bridging the gap between object and relational databases, including items such as binary objects and collection arrays. Specifics on complex datatypes are not strictly necessary for this book as they are more object-oriented than relational in nature. ❑ Specialized datatypes — These are present in more advanced relational databases catering to inherently structured data such as XML documents, spatial data, multimedia objects and even dynamically definable datatypes.

What in a business environment could be two distinctly different things could be identical when properly abstracted. So, what does all that jargon mean? For example, a car salesman may picture selling a Ford and selling a Chevy as two distinctly different processes. Fords and Chevys could be in different lots. They could have different service agreements. There could be many other differences as well. From the perspective of the database modeler, however, both Ford and Chevy are automobiles, they are both either automatic transmissions or stick-shift, and they are both sold.
