What is a Database

The question has arisen as to what is the definition of a database.

Definition of a Database? Help Requested

Since there are a number of types of databases, there is no single answer

to this question. This post provides links to some specific definitions

and discussions of the meanings of this word and links to search results

from several databases to sources that discuss databases and definition in

the same source.

Online Dictionary for Library and Information Science

"A large, regularly updated file of digitized information (bibliographic

records, abstracts, full-text documents, directory entries, images,

statistics, etc.) related to a specific subject or field, consisting of

records of uniform format organized for ease and speed of search and

retrieval and managed with the aid of database management system (DBMS)

software. Content is created by the database producer (for example, the

American Psychological Association), which usually publishes a print

version (Psychological Abstracts) and leases the content to one or more

database vendors (EBSCO, OCLC, etc.) that provide electronic access to the

data after it has been converted to machine-readable form (PsycINFO" Read

Database

From Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Database

A database is an organized collection of data. The data is typically

organized to model relevant aspects of reality (for example, the

availability of rooms in hotels), in a way that supports processes

requiring this information (for example, finding a hotel with vacancies).

.

Database management systems (DBMSs) are specially designed applications

that interact with the user, other applications, and the database itself

to capture and analyze data. A general-purpose database management system

(DBMS) is a software system designed to allow the definition, creation,

querying, update, and administration of databases. Well-known DBMSs

include MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access,

Oracle, SAP, dBASE, FoxPro, IBM DB2 and FilemakerPro. A database is not

generally portable across different DBMS, but different DBMSs can

inter-operate by using standards such as SQL and ODBC or JDBC to allow a

single application to work with more than one database.
