Practical database design, Part 2
By Philipp K. Janert - 2004-02-27 Page:  1 2 3 4

Summary and Resources

In this article I've covered database normalization and the five Normal Forms. In the normalization process, an original database design is transformed into an equivalent one, which avoids certain anomalies when inserting, updating, or deleting records. Proper normalization also helps to identify entities correctly. I also discussed the possible use of a database as a central repository for logging information or configurational data.
