The database management system is the interface to save something on the database through SQL queries. The SQL queries may be generated by database applications. The database applications in many form like front end applications. For example:- library management application.

Vivek said: (Oct 26, 2010)  
The database application will interact with database using quries and then it will produce a view in which result can be seen.

Karthik said: (Jan 4, 2011)  
It is best to refer three tier architecture of the DBMS. DBMS acts as intermediator between database and application (sql query).

Suriya Mca said: (Mar 1, 2011)  
DBMS acts as an interface between Database application and the database because of user can interact with database application to store data in database.

Balaram Meher said: (Mar 8, 2011)  
Database application is nothing but the application software which can access the database. So DBMS is the software which provide the platform to access the database through the application program.

Sony said: (Mar 24, 2011)  
As DBMS is a database application s/w, it supports the interaction of database with database application and it provides construction, storing, modification etc on database.

Manoj Sharma said: (Apr 30, 2011)  
Data base management system is an interface between data base administrater (DBA) and data.

Gajanan Kulkarni said: (May 3, 2011)  
Database application is s/w.it support interaction of database and database application, it provides the platform to store and access the data from database through the varies application programs.

Biswawara said: (May 24, 2011)  
DBMS is actually an intermediate between database application and database.

For example suppose we are considering about ATM s/w. Here it is the application and we are interacting with the database. It is implementing the three tier architecture.

Pathi said: (Jul 9, 2011)  
An access can made to an database only by executing queries. Sql queries are executed in database application.

Anu said: (Jul 31, 2011)  
Database is used to maintain the data. Database application works by using the DB. So, there should be an interface that is DBMS.

Prakhar said: (Aug 2, 2011)  
Database is a collection of logically related Data Item.

What is Dbms?

Deepika said: (Sep 8, 2011)  
Dbms is the data base management system. It is used for storage of information in the form of tables. We use as a backend. Dbms is better then file system for storage of information.

Swathi said: (Sep 18, 2011)  
What is the drawback of file system for storage of information?

Chandra Prakash said: (Oct 1, 2011)  
Database is the collection of data which manage by DBA.

Sanjeev said: (Oct 7, 2011)  
Database is a collection of different type of data. It act as a backend.

Karthika said: (Oct 9, 2011)  
Database system is the combination of both application and related software.

Abikrithi said: (Oct 18, 2011)  
What is the difference between application software and system software?

Gaurav said: (Oct 25, 2011)  
What is mean by backend and frontend?

Basha said: (Oct 25, 2011)  
@Abikrithi, System software is a computer software designed to operate the System hardware and to provide a platform to application software. Application software is a computer software to perform the user specific tasks.

@Gaurav, As per my assumption back end may be the process which is not appear to us like extracting data using JDBC in J2EE. Frontend means that we can see its operation.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

Pallavi said: (Dec 6, 2011)  
Backend means our database where we can store our data through the user interactive application and that application is known as the the frontend.

Soumya Kanta Rautaray said: (Jan 31, 2012)  
DBMS acts as an interface between Database application and the database because of user can interact with database application to store data in database.

Sreepadh Reddy said: (Feb 2, 2012)  
DBMS is a software that helps the user to interact with database and SQL application serves this purpose.

Pooja Bhatt said: (Feb 29, 2012)  
Dbms is a collection of interrelated data and a set of programs to access, update and manage that data. Data base application is program or a set of programs that interacts with the database at some point in its execution. It is used for performing certain opreation on data stored in the database.

Dhanya said: (Mar 13, 2012)  
Let me tell why option B C D are not correct, option B is ruled out becz. Data resides in database so there is no interface between them so there is no meaning in selecting that option. Option C is ruled out becz. User and the database application both resides in frontend hence it can't be appropriate. Finally option D is ruled out becz. SQL is used to retrieve the data from database while accessing the database application. Hence option A is the correct answer.

Swathi said: (Jun 11, 2012)  
Data Base Management System is a software that create & insert some data in database by using database application by user...
And they retrieved data by using Structured Query languages...

Pranjul Jain said: (Jul 16, 2012)  
Data base is the collection of interrelated data and set of programs to access those data. It has front end and back end.

Where the data store is back end and how it stores like its application is front end.

Surabhi Agrawal said: (Jul 27, 2012)  
Database is a collection of interrelated data and it handles various operation to perform on those data.

Nataraj H. Patil said: (Dec 25, 2012)  
It is by the characteristics of DBMS i.e., Insulation between data and programs, and data abstraction. Is it right?

Neha Insan said: (Feb 25, 2013)  
Database is a collection of hardware, software and human user which manage the data such as payroll, inventory.

Rajay Lakhbir said: (Mar 1, 2013)  
Whatever user need from data he/she needs to access it through database application. User request through application. DBMS understand it and then give information to user by interacting to data base.

Precious said: (May 14, 2013)  
But then how does it create an interface between database and a database application, and what is database application?

Prachi K. said: (Aug 2, 2013)  
DBMS acts interface between database and db application because we save data in database and quickly get information of that database by solving query, eg rdbms is one of the application of dbms.

Apurva Singh said: (Aug 29, 2013)  
"DBMS IS A COLLECTION OF PROGRAMS THAT ENABLE USERS TO CREATE AND MAINTAIN A DATABASE" i.e. act as a interface between database application and database.

Kumar Amit said: (Sep 28, 2013)  
The DBMS is the interface (in other word like as bridge) between user that uses the database application and the database.

Mahesh said: (Oct 5, 2013)

DBMS act as an interface b/w user and database.

Sindhu said: (Mar 18, 2014)  
Database application is what the user interacts with and the user to interact with database he makes use of an interface called dbms which explains about various standards in accessing database.
