Expert MySQLby Charles A. Bell
Synopses & Reviews
The MySQL database remains one of the hottest open source technologies today, with users flocking by the millions to MySQL.com in order to download the latest version. As the database has evolved into a product capable of competing with proprietary counterparts such as Oracle and IBM DB2, MySQL has attracted the attention of large scale corporate users who require an ideal blend of features and performance.
Expert MySQL is the first book to delve deep into the MySQL architecture in an effort to show users how to truly make the most of the database through tasks such as the creation of custom storage handlers, optimization of MySQL's query execution, and use of the embedded server product. This book will appeal to any user interested in deploying MySQL in truly high-traffic environments and in situations requiring minimal resource allocation alike.
Since the enormous number of features made available with MySQL release 5.0, MySQL has been gaining steam as a viable alternative to database behemoths like Oracle and IBM DB2. MySQL users now have the ability to extend MySQL with new SQL commands, optimize query execution, and embed MySQL within low-resource environments like embedded devices and kiosks.
Expert MySQL, by Dr. Charles A. Bell , is the first book to examine these opportunities in detail, showing you how to wield maximum control over this powerful open source database. You'll learn how to create your own custom storage handlers, ensuring maximum flexibility and speed within your specialized applications. You'll also gain valuable insight into MySQLs architecture and learn how to tweak its behavior through custom changes to the source code.
