And this level of detail, of course, can begin to weigh on database administrators (DBAs). Fortunately, the Oracle DBA Pocket Guide from O'Reilly is on the case. This handy reference is designed to help administrators make more effective use of their time by presenting a compact summary of DBA tasks in an easy-to-use form. With this book by your side, you'll have instant access to the most important concepts, best practices, tips, and checklists.

The new Oracle Application Server offers a wide range of functionality, including Java runtime and development tools, portal development tools, business intelligence, single sign-on identify management, and much more. It's so powerful and complex, in fact, that many people who use the product (or are considering using it) are familiar with only a portion of the entire range of its capabilities. The choices can be overwhelming. Few people grasp how the larger issues--such as the interplay between components or the various architectural choices in the product--play out in the Oracle Application Server. This new guide provides the perfect introduction to the Oracle Application Server for users of any level. Regardless of which of the server's capabilities you use, you'll benefit from this tightly focused, all-in-one technical overview. It's written for anyone who is concerned with using and managing web servers, doing Java development and deployment, using Oracle's own tools--like Forms and Reports, using or developing for Oracle Portal, or those who use and administer business intelligence, mobile or integration software. Divided into three concise sections, the book covers server basics, core components, and server functionality. The book leads with the history of Oracle Application Server, its architecture, management, standards, and third-party support for languages and tools such as Java, Perl, and HTTP. The next section covers Oracle's web server, containers for Java web caching, and the server's security features. And finally, the book discusses HTML development, Java development, and Oracle development. Although the book refers mainly to Oracle Application Server 10g, the authors also describe features in earlier product releases where necessary, particularly Oracle9i Application Server. More comprehensible than a large reference and more detailed than a primer, the book provides a foundation for understanding and using Oracle Application Server effectively and efficiently. Readers concentrate on the most important issues and components of the server, focusing primarily on principles rather than syntax. Designed to be the ideal first OracleAS book, Oracle Application Server 10g Essentials offers Oracle application developers and administrators everything they need to know about this powerful server.

Wozu sollte man R lernen? Da gibt es viele Grunde: Weil man damit naturlich ganz andere Moglichkeiten hat als mit einer Tabellenkalkulation wie Excel, aber auch mehr Spielraum als mit gangiger Statistiksoftware wie SPSS und SAS. Anders als bei diesen Programmen hat man namlich direkten Zugriff auf dieselbe, vollwertige Programmiersprache, mit der die fertigen Analyse- und Visualisierungsmethoden realisiert sind - so lassen sich nahtlos eigene Algorithmen integrieren und komplexe Arbeitsablaufe realisieren. Und nicht zuletzt, weil R offen gegenuber beliebigen Datenquellen ist, von der einfachen Textdatei uber binare Fremdformate bis hin zu den ganz groen relationalen Datenbanken. Zudem ist R Open Source und erobert momentan von der universitaren Welt aus die professionelle Statistik. R kann viel. Und Sie konnen viel mit R machen - wenn Sie wissen, wie es geht. Willkommen in der R-Welt: Installieren Sie R und stobern Sie in Ihrem gut bestuckten Werkzeugkasten: Sie haben eine Konsole und eine grafische Benutzeroberflache, unzahlige vordefinierte Analyse- und Visualisierungsoperationen - und Pakete, Pakete, Pakete. Fur quasi jeden statistischen Anwendungsbereich konnen Sie sich aus dem reichen Schatz der R-Community bedienen. Sprechen Sie R! Sie mussen Syntax und Grammatik von R nicht lernen - wie im Auslandsurlaub kommen Sie auch hier gut mit ein paar aufgeschnappten Brocken aus. Aber es lohnt sich: Wenn Sie wissen, was es mit R-Objekten auf sich hat, wie Sie eigene Funktionen schreiben und Ihre eigenen Pakete schnuren, sind Sie bei der Analyse Ihrer Daten noch flexibler und effektiver. Datenanalyse und Statistik in der Praxis: Anhand unzahliger Beispiele aus Medizin, Wirtschaft, Sport und Bioinformatik lernen Sie, wie Sie Daten aufbereiten, mithilfe der Grafikfunktionen des lattice-Pakets darstellen, statistische Tests durchfuhren und Modelle anpassen. Danach werden Ihnen Ihre Daten nichts mehr verheimlichen.

Oracle Power Objects, a new product from Oracle first released in 1995 as part of the Workgroup 2000 initiative, is a cross-platform development tool that greatly simplifies the development of client/server database applications. With Power Objects, you can develop applications for Windows, Windows 95, Windows NT, and the Macintosh in a remarkably short amount of time; for example, you can build a master-detail application that can add, update, and select records via a user interface -- all in 30 seconds, with no coding! This is the first book that covers Power Objects Version 2. It's an in-depth work, aimed at developers, that provides detailed information on getting the most from the product. It looks thoroughly at the most advanced features of Power Objects, covering specific application issues such as lists, reports (using both the native report writer and the Crystal Reports product), built-in methods, moving data, implementing drag-and-drop, etc. It also focuses on the use of object-oriented principles, global functions and messaging, OCXs, debugging, and cross-platform issues. The book also includes chapters on using PL/SQL with Power Object, and ways of integrating the World Wide Web with the product. It provides a wealth of developer tips and techniques, as well as understandable explanations of the internal workings of Power Objects. The accompanying diskette contains practical and complete examples that will help you build working applications, right now.

This book covers three aspects 1: Interoperability among database versions 2: Integration of related concepts for performance 3: Creation of Golden Diary in a nutshell by practical examples These intentions have been arisen based on the burning need of database users I have come across throughout my career with roles like PL/SQL developers, Database Administrators, Designers, Data analysts, Performance tuning analysts, Architects, Students, Professors, Interviewees and any DBMS enthusiast or aspirant for oracle certification. Some of these had extensive experience in what they do and have influenced me writing this book. This is an example/research oriented book which will let you navigate between different releases of oracle using alternative approaches to derive similar functionality in different versions of database. For example "Truncate table cascade in 12c and approach prior to 12c" and "Sensitive data masking using REDACTION in 12c and prior to 12c" highlight the intention. Also this book will let you integrate related concepts so that you can ponder over different similar concepts and choose the best option to achieve the best response time and throughput. Examples like "nested loop Join or hash join or parallelism or multi-threading," "Oracle Object CACHE Using Cache or Keep buffer pool or Oracle 12c IN-MEMORY column store " and "Result cache function or deterministic function or PL/SQL collection" highlight the intention. This book will act as a reference guide for learning some very complicated concepts in a simple but precise way which are discussed through various case studies. This will give food for thought while devising mechanism for best possible approach for a database solution given the circumstances. You will learn -Comparative analysis of database features and their usages across Oracle versions -Learn to derive alternate approach for a functionality in different releases of database -Learn related concepts associated with specific challenge -Learn to choose the best approach from the set of related concepts to achieve best result -Familiarize yourself with all concepts with real life example in a nutshell -Learn how to be smart with database and surprise your colleague and boss by your solution The audience of this book would like to cover multiple versions of Oracle and the features it offers. Seeking the best approach for a challenge has not been easy in past as it required a large investment of time and effort to go through the vast amount of documentation. This 270 pages book facilitates that investment, by exploring and churning the vast archives of oracle documentation and producing the output in a nutshell which otherwise readers would need to spend time on.
