Advanced Relational Programming by Filippo Cacace, Gianfranco Lamperti (auth.)

By Filippo Cacace, Gianfranco Lamperti (auth.)

This quantity goals to give contemporary advances in database expertise from the point of view of the radical database paradigms proposed within the final decade. It makes a speciality of the speculation of the prolonged relational version and an instance of a longer relational database programming language, Algres, is defined. A unfastened replica of Algres enhances this paintings, and is obtainable on the net.
Audience: This paintings may be of curiosity to graduate scholars following complicated database classes, complicated data-oriented functions builders, and researchers within the box of database programming languages and software program engineering who want a versatile prototyping platform for the advance of software program instruments.

Functional Programming Patterns in Scala and Clojure: Write Lean Programs for the JVM

Clear up real-life programming issues of a fragment of the code that natural object-oriented programming calls for. Use Scala and Clojure to unravel in-depth issues of units of styles: object-oriented styles that turn into extra concise with sensible programming, and natively practical styles.

Programming Smalltalk – Object-Orientation from the Beginning: An introduction to the principles of programming

An easy, step by step advent to transparent and stylish object-oriented programming. utilizing a language that's ideal for this type of programming, the ebook has been confirmed in several classes and workshops over ten years.

Programming Smalltalk is very suited to readers with out earlier programming wisdom. ranging from the 1st rules of programming, it teaches you the way to take advantage of and create algorithms (reusable ideas for problem-solving) and the fundamental construction blocks of software program. It is going directly to clarify find out how to improve whole functions and has an entire bankruptcy on internet functions in addition to case studies.

Now translated into English, this version used to be thoroughly revised to be in keeping with the most recent model of Cincom® VisualWorks®, a qualified Smalltalk surroundings. All examples have been created utilizing VisualWorks, that's to be had at no cost for tutorial reasons, and will be downloaded and put in on any up to date machine.

Sample text

For example, a relation employees is conventionally meant to maintain the current information of each employee, including the current address, the current role, and the current salary. When a change, such as the increase of the salary, occurs in the real world, the traditional database is expected to be updated appropriately by replacing the old value of salary with the new one. In other words, what the database is assumed to represent is the current snapshot of the real world, disregarding past and future data.

In this case it would be possible to have a set of rooms in each department, while defining another external relation containing rooms, that in turn would have a set of departments as one of its attributes. The introduction of recursively nested relations would avoid the replication of data in the case of many-to-many relationships, with all the problems involved by this fact. However, a cyclic path in the schema definition can only be achieved at the instance level through the introduction of some kind of reference or pointer from one relation to the other, thus losing the "value orientation" of the relational model.

Therefore, the representation of the interval defined by the sequence of time points from t} to t2 is simply [t}, t2]' Note that a time point t can be considered as a degenerate interval, [t, tl . 1 Observe that, in contra st with this interpretation , time is continuous in nature, that is isomorphic to real numbers, while discrete time is isomorphic to natural numbers, or a subset of natural numbers. However, both continuous and discrete interpretat ions assume that time is linearly ordered. Discrete interpret ation of time is motivated by its simplicity and ease of implementation.
