Overview

The implementation of stored procedures in MySQL 5.0 a hugemilestone -- one that is expected to lead to widespread enterprise adoption ofthe already extremely popular MySQL database.

This book, destined to be the bible of storedprocedure development, is a resource that no real MySQL programmer canafford to do without.


In the decade since MySQL burst on the scene, it has become thedominant open source database, with capabilities and performancerivaling those of commercial RDBMS offerings like Oracle and SQLServer. 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 programming fundamentals -- tutorial, basicstatements, SQL in stored programs, and error handling
  • Building MySQL stored programs -- transaction handling,built-in functions, stored functions, and triggers
  • 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

A companion web site contains many thousands of lines of code, that youcan put to use immediately.

    VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Are you a MySQL programmer? If you are, then this book is for you. Authors Guy Harrison and Steven Feuerstein, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that will help MySQL practitioners realize the full potential of MySQL stored programs. Harrison and Feuerstein, begin by introducing the MySQL stored program language and provide a detailed description of the language structure and usage. Then, the authors describe how you can use the MySQL elements to build functional and useful store programs. The authors then show you how to use the stored programs within applications. Finally, they show you how to get programs to work correctly by making them perform efficiently, robust and secure, and be easily maintained. This most excellent book describes the stored program language introduced in MySQL 5.0. More importantly, this book will help you get the job done!!
