Publisher Comments:

The Oracle SQLPlus Pocket Reference is a must-have for anyone working with Oracle databases, especially those looking to maximize the effectiveness of SQLPlus. As Oracle's long-standing interactive query tool, SQLPlus is available at every Oracle site, from the largest data warehouse to the smallest single-user system. Despite its wide use, however, SQLPlus is still often not completely understood or fully utilized.Database administrators and developers alike will therefore find the Oracle SQLPlus Pocket Reference to be extremely beneficial. In addition to summarizing all of the SQLPlus syntax and format options, including new Oracle Database 10g features, this handy, on-the-job guide specifically shows readers how to:

  • Differentiate between SQL and SQLPlus
  • Interact with SQLPlus from both the command line and the web browser
  • Select, insert, update, and delete data
  • Format both text and HTML reports with SQLPlus
  • Specify SQLPlus commands and format elements
  • Tune SQL queries
The new third edition of this book has been updated for Oracle Database 10g to include information on both SQLPlus and SQL. New SQL information includes the SELECT statement's new MODEL clause, flashback queries, partition outer joins, and DBMS_XPLAN.With its quick-reference format and compact size, the Oracle SQLPlus Pocket Reference follows in the long line of successful "pocket references" offered by O'Reilly. It also serves as the ideal companion to O'Reilly's larger, more comprehensive book on SQLPlus, the bestselling Oracle SQLPlus: The Definitive Guide.Author Jonathan Gennick is an editor for O'Reilly specializing in database and programming titles, having amassed some 17 years of programming and database management experience.
