Reviews - What do customers think about Advanced Topics in Database Research, Vol. 1 (Advanced Topics in Database Research Series)?
Biased review Sep 4, 2002
As a contributor to this book, my review is certainly biased, but I nonetheless found the chapters I did not contribute to very useful. This book covers a wide range of research topics from modeling (E/R, UML) to object-oriented considerations, active databases, semi-structured documents (XML), and the web. Each topic is treated through several thourough papers. I recommend it for both advanced database courses/students and researchers.
Review of Advanced Topics in Database Research Aug 26, 2002
As a college professor, I have found a plethora of applications for "Advanced Topics in Database Research". I recommend this book to my students, to aid them in their courses. For example, the UML chapters are invaluable for documentation of object-oriented language applications in my Systems Analysis class. Further, the topics covered on cardinality and object-oriented database benchmarks are extremely useful in my Database class. My students can often find the answers to their questions on database applications within the content of this book series.
