Abstract
This project proved to be a valuable learning experience. Nith 25000

lines of code and comments, the database system was much larger than was

originally anticipated and the lack of defined interfaces between the

physical and logical structures of the system manifested itself early.

Nere I to rewrite the database system, I would do as the System R

programmers did and start again from scratch using the knowledge

obtained from this first attempt at designing a database system. I

would also take some database courses to explore alternative designs,

problems, and solutions. Most of my database knowledge came from the

literature search and self·education and I often made mistakes that had

been made many times before.
