Database Design and Creation


In this chapter we looked at designing and building our example database. The steps covered are very important on the development front. The database itself requires careful thought regarding some of the initial settings, but as time moves on and you have a better idea about the volume of data and how people will use the data, you may find you need to alter some of these options. As you move to user acceptance testing, keep an eye on the statistic options mentioned here.

In the next chapter, we’ll start adding some meat to the bones of our example database by creating tables to hold data.
