hierarchical database
Jump to user comments
database A kind of database management system that links
records together like a family tree such that each record type
has only one owner, e.g. an order is owned by only one
customer. Hierarchical structures were widely used in the
first mainframe database management systems. However, due
to their restrictions, they often cannot be used to relate
structures that exist in the real world.
