This book/CD-ROM set is a complete reference of Designer/2000, Oracle's suite of business modeling, system design, and software development tools by an author with a proven track record. The CD-ROM provides supporting software which allows readers to work actively with the book, including over four hours of ScreenCam movies that show how to use Designer/2000 for Windows 95 and Windows NT.
This authoritative guide takes the developer each step of Oracle's CASE approach. The authors show the practical methodological steps and phases of producing software and practical ways that the Designer/2000 tool can support them. The authors explore the goals, processes and deliverables for each step in the case process, as well as techniques for successfully managing a CASE team. Interspersed throughout the book are tips and techniques for productive work in the tool, as well as tactical "how-to" discussions based on first-hand experience.
Oracle's Designer/2000 gives you powerful tools for information systems development, but its sophistication makes it very challenging to learn. In Rapid Application Development with OracleA (R) Designer/2000, the authors' "fast-path" approach puts Designer/2000 essentials into your hands quickly and shows how to make the most of the toolset in designing and implementing information systems that effectively serve your clients' needs.
Physical Database Design Using Oracle correlates logical data models with the physical implementation structures that Oracle provides. It allows students to learn how to take logical data models and convert them into a series of data structures that permit fast and easy logical access to data. This textbook is targeted at undergraduate and graduate IS students studying to become the Oracle professionals of the near future. It is expected that they already have exposure to basic Oracle database administration.
Oracle Design looks thoroughly at the field of Oracle relational database design. The design of both databases and applications is an often neglected area of Oracle, but one that has an enormous impact on the ultimate power and performance of a system. If the initial design is poor, then the most powerful hardware, the most sophisticated software tools, and the most highly tuned data and programs won't make your system run smoothly and efficiently.
Tom Kyte of Oracle Magazine’s “Ask Tom” column has written the definitive guide to designing and building high-performance, scalable Oracle applications. The book covers schema design, SQL and PL/SQL, tables and indexes, and much more. From the exclusive publisher of Oracle Press books, this is a must-have resource for all Oracle developers and DBAs.
Oracle security expert David Knox explains how to design and develop an integrated, secure Oracle environment. “In my experience in the security world, including 32 years at the Central Intelligence Agency, I’ve not found anyone with more experience in the theory and practice of protecting your data than David Knox.” --Dave Carey, former Executive Director of the CIA
This is a defining book on the Oracle database for any developer or DBA who works with Oracle-driven database applications. Tom 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, then you will find that there are few information management problems that you cannot solve quickly and elegantly.
