9780131497351: SQL for MySQL Developers: A Comprehensive Tutorial and Reference

The Most Complete and Practical Guide to MySQL Version 5’s Powerful SQL Dialect

 

MySQL version 5 offers a SQL dialect with immense power. In SQL for MySQL Developers, Rick F. van der Lans helps you master this version ofSQL and take advantage of its full potential. Using case study examplesand hands-on exercises, van der Lans illuminates every key concept,technique, and statement–including advanced features that make iteasier to create even the most complex statements and programs.

 

Drawing on decades of experience as an SQL standards team member and enterprise consultant, he reveals exactly why MySQL’s dialect works as it does–and how to get the most out of it. You’ll gain powerful insight into everything from basic queries to stored procedures, transactions to data security.

 

Whether you’re a programmer, Web developer, analyst, DBA, or database user, this book can take you from “apprentice” to true SQL expert. If you’ve used SQL in older versions of MySQL, you’ll become dramatically more effective–and if you’re migrating from other database platforms, you’ll gain practical mastery fast.

 

Coverage includes

  • Writing queries, including joins, functions, and subqueries
  • Updating data
  • Creating tables, views, and other database objects
  • Specifying keys and other integrity constraints
  • Improving efficiency with indexes
  • Enforcing security via passwords and privileges
  • Embedding SQL statements within PHP programs
  • Building stored procedures and triggers
  • Using transactions, locking, rollback, and isolation levels
  • Utilizing MySQL’s catalog

All of the book’s sample programs are available for download from www.r20.nl.
