Hi anurag, I too would love to know the difference. :) I guess relative database management system would be a more refined way of managing data. :) I dont know. I didnt go much beyond dbms. :)

Did you ever do programming in COBOL? I dont remember much of it now, but there was this arrays. I think relational database is something like that. :) That one was indeed complicated. I could do control breaks, but arrays! Ugh! :)

dbms is a database management system. its managing the system and creating a system and its also this subject are only for the freshmen in school. while rdbms is a rational database management system which mean it will review about DBMS and it will tae in third year college. but the best subject is a dbms. happy vacation. always take care and be happy everyday. god bless you all guys.
