Sample text

The value for address will not be subdivided. For each MALL, we will record store_names. There may be more than one store_name recorded for each MALL. The value of each store_name will not be subdivided. The Keys For each MALL, we will assume that the mall name (name) will be unique. 9. So far for this case study, we selected one primary entity (MALL), showed its known attributes, and used structured English to describe the entity and its attributes. Next, we will map this entity diagram to a relational database.

Each book has authors (assume last name only is needed), title, publisher, courses used in (course number only). Draw the ER diagram using the Chen-like model, and then write out the English description for your diagrams. Compare the English to your diagrams and state any assumptions you made when drawing the diagrams. Which attributes would you consider composite attributes in this database? Which attributes would you consider multi-valued attributes in this database? Could there be any derived attributes?

For each address, there always will be one and only one address for the mall. The value for address will not be subdivided. For each MALL, we will record store_names. There may be more than one store_name recorded for each MALL. The value of each store_name will not be subdivided. The Keys For each MALL, we will assume that the mall name (name) will be unique. 9. So far for this case study, we selected one primary entity (MALL), showed its known attributes, and used structured English to describe the entity and its attributes.
