Module 12: Database Applications I

CMPS 160: Databases


In this course, the topic of discussion has been mainly databases. However, databases live in an ecosystem in the real world where they have to interact with other software. This module looks at several ways other software connects to and interacts with databases. This will be a recurring theme throughout the IT program, simply because databases are used to store data and almost every application needs to store some data.
