Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the Web extending into every nook and cranny of modern life, there are plenty of folks out there who have data storage issues that need to be addressed - but no million-dollar budgets to do so. Luckily for them, there's MySQL. Offering Oracle-like power without the huge price tag, MySQL offers a networked database that can be accessed in numerous ways-all of which are described in this invaluable reference. In the clear, concise language readers have come to expect from this popular series, this Visual QuickStart Guide demonstrates how to interact with MySQL--both directly and through various popular programming languages (for example, PHP, Perl, and Java). Step-by-step instructions, practical examples, plenty of screen shots, and loads of useful tips and tricks make learning MySQL a breeze, even for novice programmers. Focusing first on the underlying concepts "What are databases? What is MySQL?"--author Larry Ullman then proceeds through installation, administration, database design, and more before tackling MySQL's use with various programming languages, database programming techniques, and utilities. Web developers, system administrators, programmers, and just about anybody who uses databases will find themselves turning again and again to this essential guide.

Book News Annotation:

MySQL has become a remarkably popular database application while, even more remarkably, maintaining its open-source roots. It can handle databases as large as 60,000 tables with more than five billion rows, but even those with more modest demands can find it very accommodating. Practitioner Ullman updates for MySQL 4 and 5 while covering installing and running MySQL, learning database design, creating a database, working through basics such as inserting and selecting data, using functions, working with PHP and Perl as well as Java, using advanced SQL such as full-text searching, building techniques for programming such as storing and retrieving binary data, and managing administration. He also includes information on troubleshooting, references and resources.
