SQL and SQL*Plus
Through numerous examples, realistic exercises, and hands-on projects, this text teaches the ins-and-outs of how to use SQL in an Oracle environment.
Developers and DBAs use Oracle SQL coding on a daily basis, whether for application development, finding problems, fine-tuning solutions to those problems, or other critical DBA tasks. Oracle SQL: Jumpstart with Examples is the fastest way to get started and to quickly locate answers to common (and uncommon) questions.
This book provides a powerful set of tools for Oracle database administrators and developers. During their many years of administering, tuning, and troubleshooting Oracle databases, the authors have developed hundreds of useful scripts. Now you can instantly take advantage of their experience by putting these scripts to work at your own site. DBAs and developers are constantly reinventing the wheel.
Support for regular expressions in SQL and PL/SQL is one of the most exciting features of Oracle Database 10G. Oracle has long supported the ANSI-standard LIKE predicate for rudimentary pattern matching, but regular expressions take pattern matching to a new level. They provide a powerful way to select data that matches a pattern, as well as to manipulate, rearrange, and change that data. This concise pocket guide is part tutorial and part quick-reference.
Focusing on standard ANSI SQL with a learn-by-doing approach, this book organizes SQL subtopics into short chapters. Readers first learn the features of a SQL command, then its usage, based on management questions that typically arise in the management decision-making process. Provides additional examples of the supplemental commands provided in the Oracle implementation of SQL.
