V. Data Access Objects > 15. Programming DAO: Data Definition Language

Chapter 15. Programming DAO: Data Definition Language

In the overview of DAO, I noted that Data Access Objects consists of two conceptually distinct components: a data definition language (DDL), which allows us to create or access some basic database system objects, like databases, table definitions, and indexes; and a data manipulation language (DML), which allows us to perform the practical operations of adding data (records) to our tables, deleting unwanted data, and modifying existing data. In this chapter, I discuss the DDL aspects of DAO.

  • To indicate variables of a certain type, I will write the type name followed by the suffix Var. For example, DatabaseVardenotes a variable of type Database , and TableDefVar denotes a variable of type TableDef.
