SQL kann Spaß machen! Es ist ein erhebendes Gefühl, eine verworrene Datenmanipulation oder einen komplizierten Report mit einer einzigen Anweisung zu bewältigen und so einen Haufen Arbeit vom Tisch zu bekommen. Einführung in SQL bietet einen frischen Blick auf die Sprache, deren Grundlagen jeder Entwickler beherrschen muss. Die aktualisierte 2. Auflage deckt die Versionen MySQL 6.0, Oracle 11g und Microsoft SQL Server 2008 ab. Außerdem enthält sie neue Kapitel zu Views und Metadaten. SQL-Basics - in null Komma nichts durchstarten: Mit diesem leicht verständlichen Tutorial können Sie SQL systematisch und gründlich lernen, ohne sich zu langweilen. Es führt Sie rasch durch die Basics der Sprache und vermittelt darüber hinaus eine Reihe von häufig genutzten fortgeschrittenen Features. Mehr aus SQL-Befehlen herausholen: Alan Beaulieu will mehr vermitteln als die simple Anwendung von SQL-Befehlen: Er legt Wert auf ein tiefes Verständnis der SQL-Features und behandelt daher auch den Umgang mit Mengen, Abfragen innerhalb von Abfragen oder die überaus nützlichen eingebauten Funktionen von SQL. Die MySQL-Beispieldatenbank: Es gibt zwar viele Datenbankprodukte auf dem Markt, aber welches wäre zum Erlernen von SQL besser geeignet als MySQL, das weit verbreitete relationale Datenbanksystem? Der Autor hilft Ihnen, eine MySQL-Datenbank anzulegen, und nutzt diese für die Beispiele in diesem Buch. Übungen mit Lösungen: Zu jedem Thema finden Sie im Buch gut durchdachte Übungen mit Lösungen. So ist sichergestellt, dass Sie schnell Erfolgserlebnisse haben und das Gelernte auch praktisch umsetzen können.
