Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Oracle 10g promises major improvements in value, service quality, and manageability. Whether you’re assessing Oracle 10g or implementing it, you’ll only make the right decisions if you really understand what’s new. This book is 100 percent focused on the new stuff.

Robert Freeman systematically reviews Oracle’s manageability improvements, from automated statistics collection to online segment compacting. There’s a full chapter on performance tuning, including Wait interface enhancements, self-tuning checkpointing; new trace functionality; and sorted hash clusters.

Freeman introduces improvements in auditing and VPN security; availability; business intelligence; application development, and lots more. The book’s also spiced with tips and insights from legendary Oracle guru Jonathan Lewis. It’s indispensable for every Oracle shop that’s even considering an upgrade. Bill Camarda
