"Mastering Oracle SQL, Second Edition": Using SQL to Get Work Done with Oracle

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From O'Reilly Media, Inc.]

Sebastopol, CA--SQL is the key to getting things done with the Oracle database. And the fully updated Mastering Oracle SQL, Second Edition (O'Reilly, US $39.95) is the key to putting SQL to work. "Mastery over the SQL language is one of the most vital requirements of a database developer or database administrator," according to authors Sanjay Mishra and Alan Beaulieu. "Knowing the power and flexibility of SQL will improve your productivity, allowing you to get more done in less time, and with increased certainty that the SQL statements you write are indeed correct."

Those who use Oracle SQL on a regular basis want to access the full power of SQL to write queries in an Oracle environment. They want a solid understanding of what's possible with Oracle SQL, creative techniques for writing effective and accurate queries, and the kind of hands-on information that leads to true mastery of the language. They want useful, expert best practices that can be put to work immediately. And Mishra and Beaulieu don't disappoint.

Fully revised and updated, this new edition covers all the most important and useful of Oracle's SQL features--including all the new SQL features and updates, large and small, introduced in Oracle Database 10g--and shows readers how to apply them to solve their specific problems and meet their particular needs. It includes real-world examples and the practical, useful elements readers need to tap into the unparalleled richness of SQL functionality that Oracle provides.
