Database means any type of database   like Oracle, Db2, Taradata and etc?

Data source means from where we r retrieving data it means data source may be database or cognos  EP series mappings or SAP BW mappings and so on



Name space means we r given a name for Query objects (QO) retrieving from one data source for avoiding duplication of QO names

EX: if we r   retrieving employee from DB2 database and from Oracle database so name collection occurs in between 2 tables at that time we  one name space for DB2 and another name space for Oracle DB
