Hi guys,

I need some ideas for my computer science project.

I want it to be database based.

Any ideas welcomed.

Thanks.

Dman.

I think you'll have to give us more information. How long should this project take? At what level? For example I could suggest you implement your own RDMS but that might be way too long/difficult.

An auto-indexing system based on tracking of poorly performing queries, their explain plans, and what index will provide the most improvement for the smallest disk cost without over-specializing to a particular query. The optimizer itself can't negatively affect the performance of the system and the indexes must be added live.

GO!

You could demonstrate a SQL injection attack, and the mitigation of it.

We could use something like that in this very forum. Or was the original post the inspiration?

Hi,

i'm a final year computer science student is London.

I wanted to do a final year project based on database technologies.

So far, I've been thinking of creating a website that connects to the database and does something smart.

thanks.

That sounds amazingly generic. Have you asked your department for ideas? Examples of what scores well?

My final year project at Edinburgh was to implement an Agent-Oriented programming language in Concurrent ML.

no I have not asked my department yet. I start uni again in september and wanted some ideas before that.

I want some ideas for a project that uses databases, any ideas.

Well the "website connected to a database" is the least interesting part of what you have so far... the "smart" part is where you need to do some brainstorming.

Could implement this "website connected to a database":
