Managing Databases - Overview

In BBj, a database is comprised of a single data dictionary and the corresponding data files defining the tables in the data dictionary. Each database is given a different name or "alias" by the administrator,  which is used to refer to that database. Only those databases that a user has been granted administrative access to can be accessed by that user when using the Enterprise Manager.
