Entity in a database could be a single person, place, or thing about which data can be stored.
Relationship provides useful information that could not be discerned with just the entity types. Relationships are meaningful associations between or among entities like assigning, associating, or tracking.
Categories are tables that are subtypes of a parent table. In relation to a database , an entity is a single person, place, or thing about which data can be stored.
Strong entity is one that exists on its own, independent of other entities.
Weak entity is one whose existence depends on another entity. A weak entity cannot be uniquely identified by its attributes alone.
Strong relationships are connections that exist between a strong entity type and its owner.
Weak relationships are connections that exist between a weak entity type and its owner.
Attribute is a piece of information which determines the properties of a field or tag in a database or a string of characters in a display.
The following picture is the object relationship symbols including entity, relationship, view, parent to category, category to child, table inheritance, type, type inheritance and dynamic connector.
Type of a relationship is created depends upon how related objects are defined.
Type inheritance is an additional property offered by hierarchy within structured complex data.
