Expert One-on-One: Oracle: Pt. 1

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

Book overview

Tom Kyte has a simple philosophy: you can treat Oracle as a black box and just stick data into it or you can understand how it works and exploit it as a powerful computing environment. If you choose the latter course, then you will find that there are few information management problems that you cannot solve quickly and elegantly.

Tom has selected the most important features and techniques and he teaches them in a proof-by-example manner, not only discussing the features available, but also how to implement software using them and indicating the potential pitfalls.

What does this book cover?

  • Core database structures and utilities
  • Performance tuning
  • Advanced SQL features
  • Extensibility using C, Java and OR features
  • Security
  • Important supplied packages

Who is this book for?

This book offers the knowledge required for both those who build Oracle database applications, and those who administer the database.

It is critical that the DBA knows what the developers are trying to accomplish and the best developers know how to exploit the DBA's data management strategies. Armed with the fundamental knowledge of the Oracle environment that Tom describes, you will be able to build bigger, faster, and more scalable applications.

Knowledge of SQL and PL/SQL is assumed and familiarity with any 3GL language (such as C, Java, or Visual Basic) would be useful.

Wrox provides on-line discussion for the above title and surrounding technologies on P2P.
