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.
