In Oracle 9i: The Complete Reference, legendary Oracle wizard Kevin Loney and former Oracle senior VP George Koch have done it yet again: They’ve authored the most thorough Oracle 9i reference ever created.
Of course, all the latest Oracle 9i functions and commands are covered, both throughout the book and in an extensively cross-referenced Alphabetic Reference that’s unparalleled in its usefulness. You’ll find detailed new coverage of Oracle 9i’s Virtual Private Database, a remarkably flexible tool for implementing security; as well as Flashback Queries, which allow users to recover from mistakes easily and gracefully. You’ll also find new, quick "Hitchhiker's Guides" to the Oracle 9i Data Dictionary, Optimizer, and Application Server, and on Oracle 9i’s XML support.
You name it, it’s here. After a thorough review of fundamental database concepts, Loney and Koch present 24 full chapters on SQL, SQL*Plus, and PL/SQL. That’s followed by a complete section on implementing and utilizing object-relational databases, and three full chapters on Java in Oracle -- including coverage of both JDBC and SQLJ programming, as well as Java stored procedures. Only one thing’s bigger than this book: its value to the working Oracle professional. Bill Camarda
