Subject Teaching Database Internals with Derby
Date Mon, 05 Jun 2006 00:12:09 GMT
       I am planning to teach a third year undergraduate course on "Database Internals" with
Derby. This is our second course in databases - the first covering ER, Relational Algebra,
SQL, little bit of indexing, transactions etc. The three umbrella topics that I plan to cover
are (1) Transactions (2) Indexing and (3) Query Optimization. After covering the theory from
text I want to give students practical exercises in Derby. For project assignments students
will form groups of three-to-four and work on a non-trivial assignment to evaluate/extend/add
some functionality to Derby in the three topics mentioned above.
I am a "newbie to Derby" and any suggestions about practial doable assignments and projects
will be most welcome.
