The lecture introduces basic technologies of the realization of database systems. Beside the coarse architecture (e.g. layered architecture) detailed procedures for the solution of special database tasks (especially query analysis and transaction management) will be discussed. The concepts of implementation will be applied to classical (relational model) as well as to more recent data models (distributed, XML). In addition to necessary theoretical fundamentals, practical concepts will be introduced that allow database administrators the efficient tuning of databases.
