Now in its second edition, this best-selling book by Tom Kyte of Ask Tom fame continues to bring you some of the best thinking on how to apply Oracle Database
to produce scalable applications that perform well and deliver correct results. Tom 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 youll find that there are few information management problems that you cannot solve quickly and elegantly.
This fully revised second edition covers the developments up to Oracle Database
11g. 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.
