Hi,
I'm having trouble understanding this particular requirement in the assignment.
"The IMS will be replaced with and RDBMS". Now my question is should we design keeping in mind the rewrite of the existing app or just the DB ?
Thanx in advance.

This statement hints you to infer/assume the following -
  • Don't think of some connector based architecture to talk to the DB.
  • A standard RDBMS means there will be a JDBC compliant driver to talk to the database.
  • You don't have to address some inherent problems associated with using a legacy database.


  • .... and NO, you don't have address DB design issues in your design.

    correct Ajith!!...i just want to add 1 more point...RDBMS also refers here that decision of a database is not taken..so probably ur design should be db independent.
