Database normalization is a technique, which is dealing with relational database management systems. Data errors can be avoided in a well normalized database. Normalization is used to reduce the data redundancy of the database. That means implementing database tables and their relationships, eliminating redundancy and inconsistent dependency.

There are some predefined rules set for normalization. Those rules are called normal forms. First Normal Form is referred to as the atomicity of a table.

Table atomicity can be reached from two steps. In the Second normal form, the attempt is to reduce the redundant data in a table by extracting them and placing them in a separate table. This can be achieved by doing the following steps. To take database to the Third normal form, already the database must be achieved at first and second normal forms.

When the database is in 1NF and 2NF, there are no any duplicate columns and no any subsets of data that apply to multiple rows. Third normal form can be achieved by removing the columns of the tables, which are not fully, depend upon the primary key.

This normal form also known as the 3. To achieve BCNF, the database must be already achieved to third normal form. Then following steps should be done to achieve the BCNF. Database must be in third normal form, before normalizing it to the fourth normal form. If the database is already in third normal form, next step should be to remove the multi-valued dependencies. If one or more rows imply the presence of one or more other rows in the same table, it is called multi-valued dependency.

Difference Between BCNF and 4NF (4th Normalization)

Fourth normal form 4NF is a normal form used in database normalization. Whereas the second , third , and Boyce—Codd normal forms are concerned with functional dependencies , 4NF is concerned with a more general type of dependency known as a multivalued dependency. If the column headings in a relational database table are divided into three disjoint groupings X , Y , and Z , then, in the context of a particular row, we can refer to the data beneath each group of headings as x , y , and z respectively. So essentially the presence of z provides no useful information to constrain the possible values of y. A functional dependency is a special case of multivalued dependency. Therefore, it meets all normal forms up to BCNF.

Database normalization is a technique, which is dealing with relational database management systems. The definition of 4NF differs from the BCNF definition only in the use of the decomposition schema satisfying only the restrictions on D there. It is always possible to obtain a 3NF design without sacrificing lossless-join or. More of your questions answered by our Experts. A normalized data model can be easier to modify and maintain.
