RELATIONAL DATABASE DESIGN

RELATIONAL DATABASE DESIGN

 You have been tasked to turn these data into a relational database. You will need to build the database and write a report about what you did. You only need to submit the report. It should have the following sections:

a. Introduction – Introduce the business requirements and describe one business rule and one use case you can identify from the scenario given above.

10 marks

b. ER Diagram – Identify the entities and relationships in the scenario given above and draw an ER diagram showing the entities, attributes, relationships, and cardinality. Do not decompose any of the relationships at this point.

10 marks

c. Database Schema – Decompose the design to create a schema to store the data in a suitable normal form (2NF or 3NF). Say which normal form the design is in and justify your choice. List the tables and show the fields, primary keys, and any foreign keys in your schema. Describe any assumptions you have made or any additional fields you have added to your design. Make sure all the primary keys are a sensible choice and introduce new fields if needed. Draw a schema diagram to illustrate your design.

d. Create Tables – Create a MySQL database to store the schema that you designed in part c. above. Create the tables using SQL statements and reproduce the code in your answer report. Define the keys and choose appropriate data types and any other restrictions you think are required.

20 marks

e. Insert the Data – Insert the data given above into the appropriate tables. Give a single example of an SQL statement that you used to insert one row of data into one of the tables.

ii. Return a list of all dog breeds, showing each breed only once (3).

iii. Write a query to count how many dogs have the string “Labr” in their breed (2).
