Expert Oracle Database Architecture: 9i and 10g Programming Techniques and Solutions with CDROMby Thomas Kyte
Synopses & Reviews
This is a defining book on the Oracle database for any developer or database administrator who works with Oracle-driven database applications. Tom Kyte 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.
Expert Oracle Database Architecture is the first of a three-book series that completely explores and defines the Oracle database. It covers all of the most important Oracle architecture features, including: Files, memory structures and processes Locking and latching Transactions, concurrency and multi-versioning Tables and Indexes Datatypes Partitioning and parallelism
Each feature is taught in a proof-by-example manner, not only discussing what it is, but also how it works, how to implement software using it, and the common pitfalls associated with it.
This fully revised edition covers both the 9i and 10g versions. It also comes with a CD containing a searchable PDF of the 8i version of the book.
