1 COMP 5138 Relational Database Management Systems Week 5 : Basic COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Today s Agenda Overview Basic Queries Joins Queries Aggregate Functions and Set Operations Textbook, Chapter 5 (up to 5.6) COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

2 - The Structured Query Language is the standard declarative query language for RDBMS Describing what data we are interested in, but not how to retrieve it. Based on SEQUEL Introduced in the mid-1970 s as the query language for IBM s System (Structured English Query Language) ANSI standard since 1986, ISO-standard since : revised to : more features added : major rework :1999 ( 3) :2003 bugfix release of :1999 plus /XML COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Overview DDL (Data Definition Language) Create, drop, or alter the relation schema DML (Data Manipulation Language) The retrieval of information stored in the database A Query is a statement requesting the retrieval of information The portion of a DML that involves information retrieval is called a query language The insertion of new information into the database The deletion of information from the database The modification of information stored in the database DCL (Data Control Language) Commands that control a database, including administering privileges and users COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

3 DDL Remember from last lecture / Week 3: Creation of tables (relations): CREATE TABLE name ( list_of_columns ) Create new relation with given name and list of columns Specify domain type for each column Also: Specify Integrity Constraints PRIMARY KEY and FOREIGN KEY REFERENCES parent_table NULL / NOT NULL constraints Much more on that in two weeks time Deletion of tables (relations): DROP TABLE name the schema information and the tuples are deleted. COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis DML Statements Insertion of new data into a table / relation Syntax: INSERT INTO table [ ( list-of-columns ) ] VALUES ( list-of-expression ) Example: INSERT INTO Students (sid, name) VALUES (53688, Smith ) Updating of tuples in a table / relation Syntax: UPDATE table SET column = expression {, column = expression} [ WHERE search_condition ] Example: UPDATE students SET gpa = gpa WHERE gpa >= 3.3 Deleting of tuples from a table / relation Syntax: DELETE FROM table [ WHERE search_condition ] Example: More details on those in a second... DELETE FROM Students WHERE name = Smith COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

4 Today s Agenda Overview Basic Queries Join Queries Aggregate Functions and Set Operations COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis SELECT Statement Used for queries on single or multiple tables Clauses of the SELECT statement: SELECT Lists the columns (and expressions) that should be returned from the query FROM Indicate the table(s) from which data will be obtained WHERE Indicate the conditions to include a tuple in the result GROUP BY Indicate the categorization of tuples HAVING Indicate the conditions to include a category ORDER BY Sorts the result according to specified criteria The result of an query is a relation A SFW-query is equivalent to the relational algebra expression Π A1, A2,..., An ( σ condition (R 1 x R 2 x... x R m ) ) COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

5 Running Example sid UoS_Code name birthdate Students enrolled Courses (unit_of_study) title country semester grade credit_ points mark assess teach Lecturer empid room name COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Running Example - Database Schema sid enrolled UoS_code semester students sid name birthdate country courses UoS_code title credit_points lecturer assessment sid UoS empid mark lecturers empid name room COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

6 Example: Basic Query List the names of all Australian students. select name from students where country= AUS Corresponding relational algebra expression π name ( σ country= AUS (students) ) Note: does not permit the - character in names, and names are case insensitive, i.e. you can use capital or small letters. You may wish to use upper case where-ever we use bold font. COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Example: Order By Clause List all students (name) from Australia in alphabetical order. select name from students where country= AUS order by name Two options (per attribute): ASC ascending oder (default) DESC descending order You can order by more than one attribute e.g., order by country desc, name asc COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

7 Duplicates In contrast to the relational algebra, allows duplicates in relations as well as in query results. To force the elimination of duplicates, insert the keyword distinct after select. Example: List the countries where students come from. select distinct country from students The keyword all specifies that duplicates not be removed. select all country from students COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Arithmetic Expressions in Select Clause An asterisk in the select clause denotes all attributes SELECT * FROM students The select clause can obtain arithmetic expressions involving the operations +, -, * and /, and operating on constants or attributs of tuples. The query: SELECT uos_code, title, credit_points*2, lecturer FROM courses would return a relation which is the same as the courses relation except that the credit-point-values are doubled. COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

8 The Rename Operation allows renaming relations and attributes using the as clause: old_name as new_name This is very useful to give, e.g., result columns of expressions a meaningful name. Example: Find the name, loan number and loan amount of all customers; rename the column name loan_number as loan_id. select customer_name, borrower.loan_number as loan_id, amount from borrower, loan where borrower.loan_number = loan.loan_number COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis The WHERE Clause The where clause specifies conditions that the result must satisfy corresponds to the selection predicate of the relational algebra. Comparison operators in : =, >, >=, <, <=,!=, <> Comparison results can be combined using the logical connectives and, or, and not. Comparisons can be applied to results of arithmetic expr. Example: Find all UoS codes for courses taught by employee 1011 that are worth more than four credit points: SELECT uos_code FROM courses WHERE lecturer = 1011 AND credit_points > 4 COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

9 The WHERE Clause (cont d) includes a between comparison operator (called range queries ) Example: Find all students (by SID) who gained marks in the distinction and high-distinction range in COMP5138. SELECT sid FROM assessment WHERE uos_code = COMP5138 mark BETWEEN 75 AND 100 AND COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis String Operations includes a string-matching operator for comparisons on character strings. LIKE is used for string matching Patterns are described using two special characters ( wildcards ): percent (%). The % character matches any substring. underscore (_). The _ character matches any character. List the titles of all COMP unit of studies. select title from courses where uos_code like COMP% supports a variety of string operations such as concatenation (using ) converting from upper to lower case (and vice versa) finding string length, extracting substrings, etc. COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

10 The FROM Clause The from clause lists the relations involved in the query corresponds to the Cartesian product operation of the relational algebra. join-predicates must be explicitly stated in the where clause Examples: Find the Cartesian product students x courses SELECT * FROM student, courses Find the student ID, name, and gender of all students enrolled in COMP5138: SELECT sid, name, gender FROM students, enrolled WHERE students.sid = enrolled.sid AND uos_code = COMP5138 COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Join Example Which students did enroll in what semester? Join involves multiple tables in FROM clause SELECT name, number, semester FROM Students S, Enrolled E WHERE S.sid = E.sid; WHERE clause performs the equality check for common columns of the two tables COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

11 Aliases Some queries need to refer to the same relation twice In this case, aliases are given to the relation name Example: For each employee, retrieve the employee's name, and the name of his or her immediate supervisor. SELECT FROM WHERE E.FNAME, E.LNAME, S.FNAME,S.LNAME EMPLOYEE E S E.SUPERSSN = S.SSN We can think of E and S as two different copies of EMPLOYEE; E represents employees in role of supervisees and S represents employees in role of supervisors COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Today s Agenda Overview Basic Queries Join Queries Aggregate Functions and Set Operations COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

12 More on Joins Join a relational operation that causes two or more tables with a common domain to be combined into a single table or view Equi-join a join in which the joining condition is based on equality between values in the common columns; common columns appear redundantly in the result table Natural join an equi-join in which one of the duplicate columns is eliminated in the result table Outer join a join in which rows that do not have matching values in common columns are nonetheless included in the result table (as opposed to inner join, in which rows must have matching values in order to appear in the result table) Union join includes all columns from each table in the join, and an instance for each row of each table The common columns in joined tables are usually the primary key of the dominant table and the foreign key of the dependent table in 1:M relationships COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Join Operators offers join operators to directly formulate the natural join, equi-join, and the theta join RA operations. R natural join S R inner join S on <join condition> R inner join S using (<list of attributes>) These additional operations are typically used as subquery expressions in the from clause List all students and in which courses they enrolled. select name, uos_code, semester from students natural join enrolled Who is teaching COMP5138? select name from courses inner join lecturers on lecturer=empid where uos_code= COMP5138 COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

13 More Join Operators Available join types: inner join left outer join right outer join full outer join Join Conditions: natural on <join condition> using <attribute list> e.g: students inner join enrolled using (sid) inner join result sid name birthdate country sid2 number grade 112 A India 112 SOFT1 P 200 B China 200 COMP2 C e.g : students left outer join enrolled using (sid) left outer join result sid name birthdate country sid2 number grade A B C India China Australia COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis null SOFT1 COMP2 null P C null Example Queries I List all courses by title select title from courses List all courses. select * from courses List in alphabetic order the details of all courses select * from courses order by title COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

14 Example Queries II Find the students with marks between 0 and 10. select sid from assessment where mark between 0 and 10 Who is teaching COMP5138? select name from courses, lecturers where number= COMP5138 and lecturer=empid ist students who got a (high) distinction in COMP5138. Tip: use in (not between) comparison operator for sets select sid from enrolled where number = COMP5138 and grade in ( D, H ) COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Today s Agenda Overview Basic Queries Aggregate Functions and Set Operations Join Queries Grouping Nested Queries COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

15 Aggregate Functions These functions operate on the multiset of values of a column of a relation, and return a value avg: average value min: minimum value max: maximum value sum: sum of values count: number of values Note: with aggregate functions you can t have single-valued columns included in the select clause COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Examples for Aggregate Functions How many students enrolled? select count(*) from Enrolled select count(distinct sid) from Enrolled Which was the best mark for SOFT2007? select max(mark) from assessment where uos_code = SOFT2007 What was the average mark for SOFT2007? select avg(mark) from assessment where uos_code= SOFT2007 COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

16 Set Operations The set operations union, intersect, and except (Oracle: minus) operate on relations and correspond to the relational algebra operations,,. Each of the above operations automatically eliminates duplicates; to retain all duplicates use the corresponding multiset versions union all, intersect all and except all. Suppose a tuple occurs m times in r and n times in s, then, it occurs: m + n times in r union all s min(m,n) times in r intersect all s max(0, m n) times in r except all s (not supported by Oracle) (not supported by Oracle) COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis Set Operations Find all customers who have a loan, an account, or both: (select customer_name from depositor) union (select customer_name from borrower) Find all customers who have both a loan and an account (select customer_name from depositor) intersect (select customer_name from borrower) Find all customers who have an account but no loan (select customer_name from depositor) except (select customer_name from borrower) COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

17 Examples for Set Operations List all names in the database. select name from students union select name from lecturers Which students did not enroll in any course? select sid from students minus select sid from enrolled Find students who enrolled for COMP5138 and COMP5318. select sid from enrolled where number= COMP5138 intersect select sid from enrolled where number= COMP5318 COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis NULL Values It is possible for tuples to have a null value, denoted by null, for some of their attributes Integral part of to handle missing / unknown information null signifies that a value does not exist, it does not mean 0 or blank! The predicate is null can be used to check for null values e.g. Find students which enrolled in a course without a grade so far. SELECT sid FROM enrolled WHERE grade IS NULL Consequence: Three-valued logic The result of any arithmetic expression involving null is null e.g. 5 + null returns null However, (most) aggregate functions simply ignore nulls COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis

18 NULL Values and Three Valued Logic Any comparison with null returns unknown e.g. 5 < null or null <> null or null = null Three-valued logic using the truth value unknown: OR: (unknown or true) = true, (unknown or false) = unknown (unknown or unknown) = unknown AND: (true and unknown) = unknown, (false and unknown) = false, (unknown and unknown) = unknown NOT: (not unknown) = unknown Result of where clause predicate is treated as false if it evaluates to unknown e.g: select sid from enrolled where grade = unknown ignores all students without a grade so far COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis NULL Values and Aggregation Aggregate functions except count(*) ignore null values on the aggregated attributes result is null if there is no non-null amount Examples: Average mark of all assignments SELECT AVG (mark) FROM assessment Number of all assignments SELECT COUNT (*) FROM assessment -- ignores nulls -- counts all tuples COMP5138 "Relational Database Managment Systems" J. Davis
