SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is used to communicate with a database. According to ANSI (American National Standards Institute), it is the standard language for relational database management systems. SQL statements are used to perform tasks such as update data on a database, or retrieve data from a database. Some common relational database management systems that use SQL are: Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, Access, Ingres, etc. Although most database systems use SQL, most of them also have their own additional proprietary extensions that are usually only used on their system. However, the standard SQL commands such as "Select", "Insert", "Update", "Delete", "Create", and "Drop" can be used to accomplish almost everything that one needs to do with a database. This tutorial will provide you with the instruction on the basics of each of these commands as well as allow you to put them to practice using the SQL Interpreter.
DBMS with SQL Server 2008 Syllabus will be as follows…..
With SQL Server 2005, Microsoft introduced SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to replace the older Data Transformation Services (DTS) available in SQL Server 2000 and earlier versions. SSIS provides a wealth of integration capabilities between everything from flat files (text files, comma separated value or .csv files), to Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, Oracle, DB2, SAP, Teradata, and many other data sources. Data cannot only be integrated but transformed as well, including complex transformations using .NET programming.
All versions of sQL Server contain the standard Import/Export Wizard which can handle many common data integration tasks. Beyond this, the Standard and Business Intelligence editions provide for basic transformations and data profiling. The full set of SSIS features is now only available in the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server including support for data mining, SAP integration, high performance data transfers, and various types of lookup transformations.
SQL Server Compact is a freely available (both for use and distribution) version of SQL Server that can be used in a variety of application scenarios including mobile devices, desktops, and for the web. SQL Server Compact has a subset of the syntax and data types found in the full versions of SQL Server, however, it can be used in a variety of application development scenarios where these limitations are not a restriction. The Visual Studio IDE provides integration with SQL Server Compact and the new Webmatrix development environment makes use of SQL Server Compact Edition. SQL Server Compact provides full transactional support, full referential integrity, merge replication functionality, and support for ADO.NET and LINQ.
Yes, starting with SQL Server 2008 there is now support for Spatial data including a Spatial data type and Spatial indexes. Planar and geodetic data types are now supported in all versions of SQL Server. Support for the geometry data type includes the ability to store ploygons, lines and other two dimensional data such as geographic data, architectural or engineering design data. The Geography data type supports integration with location aware services such as Microsoft Virtual Earth. Store map and location directly in the database and retrieve this information to displaying in mapping applications or other location aware services.
Windows applications using the Microsoft .NET Framework, Visual Basic (VB) 6.0 applications, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) applications including Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel, web applications (ASP.NET), and web services (.NET web services). SQL Server is also the database backend for many existing software applications including SharePoint Server, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Microsoft Project Server, etc., and these applications can integrated with other SQL Server applications. Existing SQL Server applications can also be enhanced to add new functionality, and migrated to newer versions of SQL Server to take advantages of new features.
