Overview

This programming companion from Rajshekhar Sunderraman is a streamlined approach to Oracle SQL, the most prevalent database language in industry and on campus. Focusing entirely on the necessary aspects of Oracle, it is designed as a specific guide for new users of this application. Using this primer in the classroom, students will be able to complete programming projects and assignments that use Oracle. These projects can be developed in a number of different programming environments (PRO*C, PL/SQL, and Oracle JDBC), thereby giving instructors flexibility and choice in these assignments.

Read an Excerpt

PREFACE:

Oracle is the most widely used database system in the world. It runs on virtually all platforms ranging from the PC to the mainframes. It also comes with an array of programming tools and environments and provides access to the database from a variety of high-level programming languages.

In recent years, more and more universities in the United States are using Oracle in their database courses as the primary vehicle to illustrate database concepts and principles. This has resulted in the need for a concise book on Oracle programming to supplement the traditional text in the database courses. The main motivation for writing this book is to satisfy this need. This book can also be used by a non-academic professional who is interested in learning about SQL, PL/SQL, embedded-SQL programming and JDBC in the context of Oracle.

The topics discussed in this book are Oracle SQL, PL/SQL, embedded programming with Pro*C and JDBC. To work with Oracle, it is absolutely essential to learn about SQL and PL/SQL, the two languages at the core of the Oracle database engine. Embedded-SQL (Pro*C) and JDBC access to Oracle are two of the important environments to develop applications in. Java is an emerging language which will have a signifcant impact in computing in the coming years and Oracle is investing in this technology by providing JDBC drivers and other tools to develop applications, expecially on the Web. Embedded- SQL is part of the SQL standards and is also an important technique for database programmers to learn.

Two sample databases are introduced early in the book and most of the chapters use these two databases for illustration purposes. Severalapplication programs are developed in their entirety in the different programming environments discussed in the text.1.

Book Use

This book is suitable as a supplemental text for an introductory database course which covers the relational model and uses Oracle as the database system for the course projects and assignments. Course projects can be developed using embedded-SQL (Pro*C) or JDBC. An entire chapter is devoted to suggestions for course projects. These course projects are typically assigned in introductory database courses where a team of students start with a problem statement, write the problem specifications, design the database, create the database in Oracle, and write application programs that access the database. Some of the chapters also have review problems for the reader to go over to consolidate their understanding of the concepts presented in these chapters.

This book is also appropriate for a non-academic individual who is interested in learning about Oracle. He or she can find materials on SQL, PL/SQL, Pro*C and JDBC, all in one text. This book can be considered a starting point in the exploration of what Oracle has to offer.
