DBMS stands for Database Management System which is a general term for a set of software dedicated to controlling the storage of data.

RDMBS stand for Relational DataBase Management System. This is the most common form of DBMS. Invented by E.F. Codd, the only way to view the data is as a set of tables. Because there can be relationships between the tables, people often assume that is what the word "relational" means. Not so. Codd was a mathematician and the word "relational" is a mathematical term from the science of set theory. It means, roughly, "based on tables".

acquire information retrieval

represented in the form of relations, with enforced
relationships between the tables.
2)RDBMS defines the integrity constraint for the purpose of
