Author Crams Content into O'Reilly's Oracle SQL: The Essential Reference
SEBASTOPOL, CA--O'Reilly's Oracle SQL: The Essential
Reference, is intended to serve as a fundamental guide for everyone
who needs to access an Oracle Database using SQL--developers, database
administrators (DBAs), designers, managers, and general users. SQL (Structured
Query Language) is the heart of every relational database management system,
but few developers and DBAs have truly mastered it. Oracle SQL: The
Essential Reference, covers the crucial aspects of standard SQL and
Oracle's extensions to it.
Oracle SQL: The Essential Reference, is jam-packed with quick reference
tables, performance hints, summaries of statements, datatypes, and mounds
of useful SQL, SQL*Plus and PL/SQL information that SQL practitioners need
to know. Author David Kreines feels his book would be most valuable to SQL
fans and users looking for "clear, concise information about Oracle's
implementation of SQL, with plenty of summary tables and quick reference to
syntax and usage." In fact, he goes on to say, "my approach is to cram as
much concise and fast-moving material as possible into these pages."
Oracle SQL: The
Essential Reference, also contains an extensive discussion
of how to tune SQL statements and use the Oracle optimizers to get the best
performance from your database using SQL. The book covers Oracle 8/8i,
through release 8.1.6.
