Now that you have created a physical design for the database, it is time to move to the fourth stage of the DBLC: implementation 
In this phase of the DBLC, you will useSQL
to create the database to hold your tables, then create the tables themselves.
The specific commands used to create a database may vary from system to system. The procedure described below will apply to every RDBMS, but the commands may be slightly different.
When you create a database, you create a container for the tables and views you want to build. The technical name for that container is a
. To create a schema, you use the
SQL CREATE SCHEMA
statement, followed by the name of the schema you want to create.
CREATE SCHEMA StoriesOnCDOrders
If the schema you want to work with already exists, you can use the
SQL SET SCHEMA
let the RDBMS know you want to add tables to the database. For instance, the following command will open the StoriesOnCDOrders schema (database) for editing:
SET SCHEMA StoriesOnCDOrders
The next lesson explains how to create tables with SQL.
SQL: SQL is an acronym for Structured Query Language. It provides a set of commands that can be used to add data to a database, retrieve that data, and update it. SQL,
often pronounced “sequel”, is universally supported by relational database vendors.
