A database is an integrated collection of logically related records or objects. An object consists of data values describing the attributes of an entity, plus the operations that can be performed upon the data. A database consolidates records previously stored in separate files into a common pool of data records that provides data for many applications.

dBase, commonly referred to as dBase II, with subsequent versions, dBase III, dBase III+, and dBase IV is a Database Management system for microcomputers. dBase has evolved into a modern object oriented language that runs on 32 bit Windows. It can be used to build a wide variety of applications including web apps hosted on a Windows server, Windows rich client applications, and middleware applications.

dBase can access most modern database engines via ODBC drivers. dBase features an IDE with a Command Window and navigator, a just in time compiler, a preprocessor, a virtual machine interpreter, a linker for creating dBase application .exe's, a freely available runtime engine, and numerous two-way GUI design tools.
 
In addition to the dot-prompt, dBase III, III+ and dBase IV is packaged with an ASSIST application to manipulate data and queries, as well as APPSGEN application which allows the user to generate applications without resorting to code writing like 4GL. Some people find dBase to be an excellent interactive ad-hoc data manipulation tool. With dBase, one can more easily manipulate, format, analyze and perform calculations on individual records, strings, numbers and so on in a step-by-step way.
 
As an application development platform, dBase fills a gap between lower level languages such as C, C++, and Java and high level proprietary fourth generation languages and purely visual tools, providing relative ease-of-use for business people with less formal programming skills and high productivity for professional developers willing to trade off the low-level control.
