The major differences between DBMS and RDBMS are: DBMS is mainly a storage area and it does not employ any tables for storing the data or does not use any special function keys or foreign keys for the retreival of the data. RDBMS has the major difference of solving the queries easily as they are stored in table format and use many functional keys in solving the queries. They follow the Codd's rule..

DBMS stands for Data Base Management System.
It shows how to insert,update or delete the records.

While RDBMS stands for Relational Database Management System.
It shows the relation between the tables.
In RDBMS it follows the ACID property
A: Automation
C: Concurrent
I: Integration
D: Durability

A database can not be distributed but RDBMS can be distributed.............

I'd be very interested in where the definitions you suggest for DBMS and RDBMS came from. Do you have any citations to support what you have written?

Although I very much appreciate such citations from any who may read this, I'm particularly interested in a response from the author who has been conspicuously absent in the comments.

Please and by all means... share those citations with the rest of us.

Shabbir,

Some very powerful definitions about what a DBMS and an RDBMS are have been made in your article and they have made without citation. Since it's highly unlikely that you're the inventor or either term, citations are important. I think your definitions are likely correct definitions and I'd really like to cite your article in some of my own reasearch, but without such citations from you to support this article, they amount to nothing more than hear-say and conjecture.

Is there any change that you could post such citations? Thanks.

Jeff, I have not tried to define here anything but I am trying to explain the terms which is defined in a very simple and lucid terms so that very novice users can understand it.

Regarding the wrong definition you can search sites like answers.com and such others and you will see what I meant.
