Database Management System - Modeling Language

Modeling Language

A modeling language is a data modeling language to define the schema of each database hosted in the DBMS, according to the DBMS database model. Database management systems (DBMS) are designed to use one of five database structures to provide simplistic access to information stored in databases. The five database structures are:

  • the hierarchical model,
  • the network model,
  • the relational model,
  • the multidimensional model
  • the object relational model,
  • the object oriented model,and
  • the object model.

Inverted lists and other methods are also used. A given database management system may provide one or more of the five models. The optimal structure depends on the natural organization of the application's data, and on the application's requirements, which include transaction rate (speed), reliability, maintainability, scalability, and cost.

Famous quotes containing the words language and/or modeling:

    I am both a public and a private school boy myself, having always changed schools just as the class in English in the new school was taking up Silas Marner, with the result that it was the only book in the English language that I knew until I was eighteen—but, boy, did I know Silas Marner!
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    The computer takes up where psychoanalysis left off. It takes the ideas of a decentered self and makes it more concrete by modeling mind as a multiprocessing machine.
    Sherry Turkle (b. 1948)
