Walk away from old-fashioned and cumbersome query approaches and answer your business intelligence questions through simple and powerful queries built on common table expressions (CTEs) and window functions. These new features in MariaDB and MySQL help you to write queries without having to wade through a quagmire of brittle self-joins and other crazy techniques from the past. Your queries will generate correct results, be more readable and less brittle in the face of unexpected data, and you'll be able to adapt them quickly in the face of changing business requirements. MariaDB and MySQL Common Table Expressions and Window Functions Revealed introduces and explains CTEs and window functions, newly available in MariaDB 10.2 and MySQL 8.0, and helps you understand why and how every MariaDB and MySQL database programmer should learn and apply these features in their daily work. CTEs and especially window functions enable easy solutions to many query challenges that in prior releases have been difficult and sometimes impossible to surmount. Mastering these features opens the door to query solutions that are more robust, execute faster, and are easier to maintain over time than prior solutions using older techniques. The book: Takes you step-by-step through the workings of common table expressions and window functions Provides easy-to-follow examples of the new syntax Helps you answer business questions faster and easier than ever What You'll Learn Answer business questions using simple queries that don't break in the face of unexpected data Avoid writing queries that are a difficult-to-maintain quagmire of self-joins and nested subqueries Recognize situations that call for window functions, and learn when to use these features Reduce the need for performance-robbing self-joins Simplify and speed the execution of analytical queries Create queries that finish in seconds instead of hours Who This Book Is For Database administrators and application developers who want to quickly get up to speed on important features in MariaDB and MySQL for writing business intelligence queries. Any developer writing SQL against MariaDB and MySQL databases will benefit tremendously from the knowledge and techniques this book provides.
Learn the many design decisions that must be made before starting to build a large Oracle Application Express (APEX) application for the cloud or enterprise. One of APEX's key strengths is the fact that it is a Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool. This is also a major weakness when it tempts developers to start coding too soon. Small applications that consist of tens of pages can be coded without a lot of design work because they can be re-factored quickly when design flaws are discovered. Design flaws in large cloud and enterprise applications that consist of hundreds or thousands of pages are not so easy to re-factor due to the time needed to redevelop and retest the application, not to mention the risk of breaking functionality in subtle ways. Designing a large application before coding starts is a profitable exercise because a thoughtful design goes a long way in mitigating cost overruns and schedule slippage while simultaneously enhancing quality. This book takes into account perspectives from other non-developer stakeholders such as maintenance developers, business analysts, testers, technical writers, end users, and business owners. Overlooking these perspectives is one of the chief causes of expensive rework late in the development cycle. Oracle Application Express by Design illustrates APEX design principles by using architecture diagrams, screen shots, and explicit code snippets to guide developers through the many design choices and complex interrelationship issues that must be evaluated before embarking on large APEX projects. This book: Guides you through important, up-front APEX design decisions Helps you to optimize your design by keeping all stakeholders in mind Explicit code examples show how design impacts cost, schedule, and quality What You Will Learn Pick and choose from the list of designs before coding begins Bake optimal quality into the underlying fabric of an APEX application Think and design from outside the developer's narrow perspective Optimize APEX application designs to satisfy multiple stakeholder groups Evaluate design options through hands-on, explicit code examples Define and measure success for large cloud and enterprise APEX applications Who This Book Is For APEX developers and development teams

Speed up the execution of important database queries by making good choices about which indexes to create. Choose correct index types for different scenarios. Avoid indexing pitfalls that can actually have indexes hurting performance rather than helping. Maintain indexes so as to provide consistent and predictable query response over the lifetime of an application. Expert Oracle Indexing and Access Paths is about the one database structure at the heart of almost all performance concerns: the index. Database system performance is one of the top concerns in information technology today. Administrators struggle to keep up with the explosion of access and activity driven by the proliferation of computing into everything from phones to tablets to PCs in our increasingly connected world. At the heart of any good-performing database lies a sound indexing strategy that makes appropriate use of indexing, and especially of the vendor-specific indexing features on offer. Few databases fully exploit the wealth of data access mechanisms provided by Oracle. Expert Oracle Indexing and Access Paths helps by bringing together information on indexing and how to use it into one blissfully short volume that you can read quickly and have at your fingertips for reference.
