Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

SQL is the way to develop, program, and use database applications. SQL-92 is a major advance over earlier versions, offering the first complete SQL language. DB programmers will have the advantage of knowing that applications written in SQL-92 will be portable to all hardware platforms for many years to come. As the editor of the new standard, Jim Melton is an authority on the language and its new features. Using a highly readable, conversational style, the authors clearly present the power of SQL. They describe practical methods of using SQL to solve problems, advanced SQL query expressions, dynamic SQL, transaction models, and database design. Beginning with a tutorial on basic relational database concepts, subsequent chapters develop SQL and clarify the differences between SQL-89 and SQL-92. Throughout, a retail video and music store is used as an example that develops with the SQL presentation. The book is enhanced by a complete dynamic SQL example, coverage of international character sets, and a look at future generations of SQL. Whether you're a newcomer to SQL or an experienced programmer using PCs, workstations, mini- or mainframes, Understanding the New SQL is an essential resource for current and future implementation of SQL.
