Along with Linux and PHP, MySQL is at the heart of millions ofapplications. And now, with support for stored procedures, functions,and triggers in MySQL 5.0, MySQL offers the programming power neededfor true enterprise use.

MySQL's new procedural language has a straightforward syntax, making iteasy to write simple programs. But it's not so easy to write secure,easily maintained, high-performance, and bug-free programs. Few in theMySQL world have substantial experience yet with stored procedures, butGuy Harrison and Steven Feuerstein have decades of combined expertise.

In MySQL Stored Procedure Programming, they putthat hard-won experience to good use. Packed with code examples and coveringeverything from language basics to application building to advancedtuning and best practices, this highly readable book is the one-stopguide to MySQL development. It consists of four major sections:

  • MySQL stored programs in applications — using storedprograms with PHP, Java, Perl, Python, and .NET (C# and VB.NET)
  • Optimizing MySQL stored programs — security, basic andadvanced SQL tuning, optimizing stored program code, and programmingbest practices
