Is it just me, that does not immediately see an overlap between Oracle and .NET? Historically, Oracle databases have tended to be installed on unix workstations (especially Solaris). And nowadays, on linux as well. But Williams points out that given the widespread presence of .NET, and that Oracle is the dominant database, then we should indeed have an important market intersection of the two. Other books have described using C#/.NET with Microsoft's SQL Server. Not surprising, because Microsoft supplies all these parts. But this book is perhaps overdue, in filling a gap in the documentation of .NET and Oracle. The exposition herre is logical, and not unlike some of those other books. (Cf. 'SQL Server Query Performance Tuning Distilled' by Dam.) Except of course that you are shown how to optimise table design and complex queries for Oracle. Plus, Williams describes this for Oracle 10g Enterprise Edition - Oracle's latest flagship version. The book uses C# as the programming language, since it seems to be the best supported 'native' language of .NET. In the development environment, he gives some simple GUIs to access the database. Done often in VB.NET or Microsoft Window Forms. Realistically, any GUIs for your work will be more intricate. But you get enough GUI framework code to get you started along these lines.
