there are data dictionary management, data storage management, data transformation and presentation, security management, multiuser access control, backup and recovery management, data integrity management, database access languages and application programming interfaces, database communication interfaces, and transaction management. The first function of database management system is data dictionary. Database management system has been perform management functions to the elements in the database and how to connect the relationships with other data. When the system requires data in a database that will facilitate DBMS via SQL to access and search data. So that users can easily handle it.
Tables have key fields, which can be used to identify unique records. Keys relate tables to each other. The rows of the relation are also called tuples, and there is one tuple component for each attribute – or column – in that relation. A relation or table name, along with those relation’s attributes, make up the relational schema. Relational Database models are server-centric.
Database Database is an information that consists of data related with structure, meaning, purpose, users and application, objectives and fulfil need requirement. Database management system also known as DBMS is a information that been collected to general purpose. Database application is an independent programmed that provide service, storage manageable, give an efficient interfaced and generate report. There is a few functions of database which is structure definition, population, reporting ad modification of structure. There is a database functionalities that perform consistency and efficiency of database.
The effective retrieval of relevant information is directly affected both by the user task and by the logical view of the documents adopted by the retrieval system. Information Retrieval (IR) is the method that contract with retrieval of unstructured data mainly textual documents, in response to a query or topic statement, which may itself be unstructured.
b. Data Manipulation Language . c. Data Control Language . Data Definition Language (DDL): This component is used to CREATE and ALTER (or) modify the tables and the objects of that database.

Chapter I Define each of the following terms in your own word a) Database b) DBMS c) Metadata a) Database (Crucial Concept): A database is essentially a means of storage and retrieval of items of data. The data is usually either numerical or textual, although other data forms can be accommodated. A database is a collection of data held logically and with a purpose. Is designed and organized in such manner that it can be accessed later on for different purposes. For example we need to access our Database to update some information from it or just to extract it.
Database program that is a software system that store the database information. It organizes, manages incoming data and provides ways for the data to be modified or extracted by users or other programs. Is a device interposed between a potential user of information and information collection itself for a given information problem, the purpose of the system is to capture wanted items and to filter out unwanted items. Structured data. Unstructured data.
The differences between Database management system (DBMS) and information retrieval system by focusing on their functionalities is, DBMS is software that enables computer to perform database functions of storing, retrieving, adding, deleting and modifying data. This means the user or other program easy to understand and know where the data is located on storage media and the space of data. Example of DBMS is Microsoft Access, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and FileMaker Pro Access, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and FileMaker Pro. The meaning of information retrieval is a process to collect a relevant resource from collection information resources. Search can be based on metadata.
• Information is a product. Q1 (a): Difference between database management system and information retrieval system Database Management System (DBMS)(software) Information Retrieval System(technic) • A software system that enable user to define, create, maintain, and control access to the database. • This is an application program that a computer program that interacts with database by issuing an appropriate request (SQL statement) to the DBMS. • Database work with relational databases while information retrieval system works on structured data. • In database system, main data structure used in relational tables with well define values for each row and column.
Early research efforts in the area of access control and confidentiality for DBMSs focused on the development of two different classes of models, based on the unrestricted access control policy and on the mandatory access control policy. This early research was transmitting in the framework of relational database systems. The relational data model, being a declarative and high-level model for specifying the logical structure of data, made the development of simple declarative languages for specifying access control policies. These earlier models and the unrestricted models in particular, introduced some important principles that set apart access control models for database systems from access control models adopted by operating systems and file systems. The primary principle was that access control models for databases should be expressed in terms of the logical data model; thus authorizations for a relational database should be expressed in terms of relations i.e.
