Now, for the first time, leading agile methodologist Scott Ambler and renowned consultant Pramodkumar Sadalage introduce powerful refactoring techniques specifically designed for database systems. I Ambler/Sadalage „Database Refactoring“, 2006 [1] Definition 1 (Ambler): Database refactoring A simple change to a database schema that improves its design while retaining both its behavioural and informational semantics.

Notes for buying my books. A decade ago 'refactoring' was a word only known to a few people, mostly in the Smalltalk community. The technique of database refactoring is all about applying disciplined and controlled techniques to change an existing database schema. Refactoring Databases: Evolutionary Database Design. Now, for the first time, leading agile methodologist Scott Ambler and renowned consultant Pramodkumar Sadalage introduce powerful refactoring techniques specifically designed for database systems. You’ll learn how to use refactoring to enhance database structure, data quality, and referential integrity; and how to refactor both architectures and methods. A database refactoring is a small change to your database schema (the table structures, data itself, stored procedures, and triggers) which improves its design without changing its semantics. Introduction Theory Application Related Work Conclusion and Outlook Pramodkumar J. Sadalage, Scott W. Ambler. This paper concentrates on the feasibility of adapting this concept to work as a generic template. Refactoring Databases .
