A database is an integrated collection of data records, files, and other objects. These databases can then be accessed by the client or clients customers depending on security settings, passwords etc and the nature of the data. One example of database use can be seen on www.organicfooddirectory.com.au. This is a public search engine of organic food suppliers.
