1. Data Modeling[Comparison of data modeling techniques ] By Renjini Sindhuri

2. Contents • Introduction • E-R modeling • Peter Chen • Information Engineering • Barkers Notation • IDEFIX • UML modeling • XML modeling • X- Entity modeling • XUML • Conclusion

3. Introduction • Data modeling is the act of exploring data oriented structures. • Examines and compares different data modeling techniques • In the data modeling techniques we have traditional modeling and object oriented modeling of data

4. E-R modeling • It is a conceptual data model that views the real world as consisting of entities and relationships • It is used to transform relational tables that are easy to understand that enables easy communication with the end user • Peter –Chen developed E-R model

5. Peter –Chen notation • Entities are represented in the squared cornered and circles as attributes • Many –Many relationships can be represented without associative entity • Relationship itself has attributes and are considered as objects • It failed to represent unique identifier

6. Peter Chen’s Model

7. Information Engineering model • Developed by Clive Finkelstein • Entities are represented in the squared cornered and attributes are not shown at all they are shown in a separate list called entity list • Relationships like mandatory 1 and many can be represented • Unique identifiers are not represented

8. Information Engineering modeldiagram

9. Barkers Notation • Adopted by Oracle corporation for its CASE method • Entities can be represented by round cornered rectangle • Same entity can be represented for role an interaction or another kind of association • Relationship names are prepositions and not verbs • Unique identifiers can be represented by hash marks next to the attribute

11. IDEFIX Notation • It is a modeling technique that is used by many branches of the United States Federal government • A relationship name is a verb • IDEFIX shows subtypes as separate entity boxes • IDEFIX permits multiple inheritance and multiple type hierarchies

13. UML • UML is an object modeling technique • It models object classes instead of entities • In the object oriented world the relationships are called as associations • Cardinality and optionality in UML is conveyed by characters or numbers • Express in the form of more complex upper and lower limits • UML introduces a small flag that includes text describing any business rules

15. XML Notation • Describing data and interchanging structured and unstructured data on the Internet • It is a universal language of data on web • XML tags are used to create data structures • XML documents have been widely used for interchanging data between heterogeneous systems.

16. XML notation • An example of XML notation http://www.essentialstrategies.com/publications/modeling/xml.htm

17. X-Entity model • Conceptual model of XML uses X entity model in order to represent additional features • The entity can be denoted by ‘E’ • ({A1,….An},{R1,…Rm},{D1,….Dk}) • Each attribute A is associated with a domain Dom(Ai) Which specifies its value set Cardinality is denoted by Card(Ai)=(min,max)

19. XUML • XUML comprises the characteristics of XML and UML2. • It is used to express the containment semantics more explicitly • Supporting the concept of Business Components • Specifying the data dependencies in multiple context

25. Advantages of XUML • XUML can express the containment semantics more accurately. • Support the concept of Business Component. • Can specify the data dependencies in multiple context.

26. Contd.. • XUML is more expressive, precise and understandable. • More rigorous and accurate.

27. Conclusion • By comparing the aesthetic simplicity, completeness, language notation (relationship) Mr. Barker's notation is favorable for requirement analysis model • XML is used in recent trends it follows a standard format for representing structured and semi structured data on web • X-Entity model has the advantages of both XML schemas and extends the ER model so that it can explicitly represent important features of XML schemas • The distinctive features of XUML made this technique of data modeling the latest trend for conceptual modeling of data.
