  1. Create, read, update and delete

    In computer programming, create, read, update and delete are the four basic functions of persistent storage. Sometimes CRUD is expanded with the words retrieve instead of read, modify instead of update, or destroy instead of delete. It is also sometimes used to describe user interface conventions that facilitate viewing, searching, and changing information; often using computer-based forms and reports. The term was likely first popularized by James Martin in his 1983 book Managing the Data-base Environment. The acronym may be extended to CRUDL to cover listing of large data sets which bring additional complexity such as pagination when the data sets are too large to hold easily in memory. Another variation of CRUD is BREAD, an acronym for "Browse, Read, Edit, Add, Delete". DRULAB is also a variation, where "L" stands for Locking the access to the data. This extension is mostly used in context with data protection concepts, when it is legally not allowed to delete data directly. Locking the data prevents the access for users without destroying still needed data.
