Oracle Books Data Modeling with ERwin
By: Carla DeAngelis
Paperback - 410 pages 1st edition (May 15, 2000)

A guide to the use of ERwin--a visual data modeling tool that supports logical and physical data modeling. The program supports the design of large, complex enterprise models by dividing them into smaller more manageable subject areas which allows multiple views of the same subject area. After describing the basics of modeling concepts and the program, the author explains how to use ERwin to create a logical model that represents necessary information requirements and business rules. Finally the use of database administration for developing physical models is explained. From the first chapter, author Carla DeAngelis skillfully explains the normally complex concepts of Data Modeling-a critical success factor in the information-based enterprises of today. Carla tackles complex topics such as Logical Data Models, Modeling Methodologies, Relationships, and Attributes in a clear style that makes it simple for anyone to begin applying them immediately. Once the foundation has been laid, Carl a teaches you to develop your own databases with ERwin.

Oracle Books Database Design for Smarties: Using UML for Data Modeling
By: Robert J. Muller
Paperback - 464 pages (February 1999)
Morgan Kaufmann Publishers

If you want to see how your next database project can profit from object-oriented design, check out Database Design for Smarties, a lively and intelligent guide to using objects in databases. The book begins with a tour of some underlying factors in modeling databases. Here, the author distinguishes between the external, conceptual, and internal models of database design.) Then it's on to data architectures, be they the traditional relational or the newer object-relational and object-oriented (O O) database types. After discussing some of the pitfalls of gathering and implementing user requirements, the author looks at UML notation for use case diagrams. (His example here, a crime database for tracking Sherlock Holmes's stories, along with criminals and clues, is both intelligent and entertaining.) The author's guide to UML class design is topnotch. He covers basic and advanced OO concepts such as inheritance, aggregation, composition, and polymorphism with clear and concise explanation s. He also shows you how to model business rules using objects and UML class diagrams. The most valuable part of this book comes with the mapping of UML class diagrams onto three different kinds of databases: relational (on Oracle7), object-relational (on Oracle8), and object-oriented (on the POET platform). The author shows how to emulate object-oriented ideas successfully using stored procedures and triggers, even if you are not running on a "true" object-oriented platform.
