Every Oracle professional needs a reliable source of information on Oracle SQL. This book is it. More than a comprehensive and well-written reference, it delivers bushels of Oracle 10g example code -- all tested and verified.
Gavin Powell and Carol McCullough-Dieter cover Oracle SQL from soup to nuts: SELECT, WHERE, ORDER BY, operators, conditions, pseudocolumns, SQL*PLUS, functions, joins, grouping, summarization, subqueries, expressions, DML, datatypes, collections, indexes, clusters, constraints, PL/SQL, and much more. You’ll also find detailed coverage of XML datatypes, generation, and retrieval; and managing security via users, privileges, groups, and roles.
Much of what’s in here applies to Oracle 9i as well. If you haven't upgraded yet, you can rely on this book now, and keep relying on it after you move up. Bill Camarda, from the January 2005 Read Only
