- Project: consists of the design and implementation of a
database application of your choice using either MicroSoft Access or
MySQL. It is decomposed into 3 parts. In the first part, choose a
non-trivial application (e.g., an enterprise involving companies,
departments, employees, inventory etc.) and model it by stating the
requirements and using an E-R diagram. The second part is the
implementation of the relational model based upon the E-R diagram of the
first part. The final part is the implementation of the application. This
project is to be done in groups of 3.
