Application Express, or APEX, is one of the most innovative products to come out of Oracle in years. APEX is an application development framework for developing databasebacked applications. It's easy enough to get started in that power users can quit storing data in random spreadsheets and instead centralize their data in the powerful Oracle database, all without developer help. Developers aren't left out, however. Those who choose to do socan go deep and leverage the full power and flexibility of Oracle's database engine.

Getting started with APEX is easy; learning how to take full advantage of APEX is the problem. It was the problem, that is, until this book came along. In Pro Oracle Application Express, authors John Scott and Scott Spendolini open the hood of APEX and expose the full power behind its easytouse GUI. They show you what you need to know to produce powerful, professionally polished applicationssuch as user-authentication models, approaches to layout and navigation, how to integrate Ajax, how to deal with localization issues such as time zones and translations, how to customize the look and feel of an APEX web site, and much, much more.

The authors are wellqualified to write on APEX. John Scott runs ShellPrompt, a hosting service that handles many large-scale APEX applications, some of which he is paid to develop. John is a hardcore APEX developer. His co-author, Scott Spendolini, is one of the original creators of APEX. Both John and Scott now base their full-time careers on developing APEX applications. Pro Oracle Application Express is your opportunity to learn APEX from the very best.

Oracle SQL is one of the world's most powerful dialects, packed with advanced functions and features that give Oracle SQL procedural language capabilities. Using these powerful features it is no longer necessary to embed Oracle SQL inside a procedural language, and native Oracle SQL can now be used to solve complex query problems. This is an indispensable book for all Oracle DBA's and developers who need to understand how to apply Oracle SQL features for complex queries. Written by a certified Oracle Master and Oracle ACE, this advanced book shows working examples of how to leverage Oracle SQL's powerful built-in functions for fast extraction of complex data and how to use native SQL for procedural processing. Every developer needs to know how to use Oracle SQL to summarize and aggregate data from large tables and how to use powerful features such as the "model" clause to make SQL act as a procedural language. This book shows important techniques on how to leverage Oracle's powerful XML interface to quickly format Oracle data with XML for instant publication. This is not a book for beginners or dilettantes and it is designed for the professional Oracle developer, covering many advanced Oracle SQL techniques including XML queries, Oracle SQL analytics, SQL for aggregation, and traversing Hierarchies. Best of all, the author reveals secrets for retrieving Oracle data faster and more elegantly than the traditional approaches to writing SQL.

This book, written by veteran Oracle database administrator Iggy Fernandez, a regular on the Oracle conference circuit and the editor of NoCOUG Journal, is a manageable introduction to key Oracle database administration topics including planning, installation, monitoring, troubleshooting, maintenance, and backups, to name just a few. As is clear from the table of contents, this book is not simply a recitation of Oracle Database features such as what you find in the reference guides available for free download on the Oracle web site. For example, the chapter on database monitoring explains how to monitor database availability, database changes, database security, database backups, database growth, database workload, database performance, and database capacity.

The chapters of this book are logically organized into four parts that closely track the way your database administration career will naturally evolve. Part 1 gives you necessary background in relational database theory and Oracle Database concepts, Part 2 teaches you how to implement an Oracle database correctly, Part 3 exposes you to the daily routine of a database administrator, and Part 4 introduces you to the fine art of performance tuning. Each chapter has exercises designed to help you apply the lessons of the chapter. Each chapter also includes a list of reference works that contain more information on the topic of the chapter.

In this book, you'll find information that you won't find in other books on Oracle Database. Here you'll discover not only technical information, but also guidance on work practices that are as vital to your success as technical skills. The author's favorite chapter is "The Big Picture and the Ten Deliverables." If you take the lessons in that chapter to heart, you can quickly become a much better Oracle database administrator than you ever thought possible. What you'll learn Theory of relational database management systems Oracle Database internals Licensing, architecture, and sizing Software installation and database creation Using indexes to improve performance User management and data loading How to monitor all aspects of your database How to solve and fix problems Database backups and database recovery Database maintenance Database tuning SQL tuning Who this book is for

If you are an IT professional who has been thrust into an Oracle database administration role without the benefit of formal training, or you just want to understand how Oracle Database works, this book is for you. It's the book the author wishes he'd had when he first started using Oracle Database many years ago. It's the book that he would have liked to have given to the many IT colleagues and friends who, over the years, have asked him to teach them the basics of Oracle Database.

While building on the skills you already have, Expert SQL Server 2005 Development will help you become an even better developer by focusing on best practices and demonstrating how to design high-performance, maintainable database applications. This book starts by reintroducing the database as a integral part of the software development ecosystem. You'll learn how to think about SQL Server development as you would any other software development. For example, there's no reason you can't architect and test database routines just as you would architect and test application code. And nothing should stop you from implementing the types of exception handling and security rules that are considered so important in other tiers, even if they are usually ignored in the database. You'll learn how to apply development methodologies like these to produce high-quality encryption and SQLCLR solutions. Furthermore, you'll discover how to exploit a variety of tools that SQL Server offers in order to properly use dynamic SQL and to improve concurrency in your applications. Finally, you'll become well versed in implementing spatial and temporal database designs, as well as approaching graph and hierarchy problems.

"Everything you need to master Access 2007 forms, reports, and queries."-Charles Carr, Reviews Editor, "ComputorEdge" Magazine Create Forms for BusinessEnsure Data Entry AccuracyBuild Elegant Form InterfacesCollect Data Via EmailDesign Effective Business ReportsMake an Invoice ReportCreate Mailing LabelsExtract DataWork with Multiple TablesCalculate DiscountsAnalyze Data Develop your Microsoft Access expertise instantly with proven techniques Let's face it: Microsoft Access is a large, intimidating program. Most people never progress beyond creating simple tables and using wizards to build basic forms and reports. At the same time, you need information and you know that what you seek is embedded somewhere in your Access database. Without a more sophisticated knowledge of how to extract and present that data, you're forced to rely on office gurus and overworked IT people to provide canned reports or one-size-fits-all solutions. This book changes all that by giving you the skills to build efficient front-ends for data (forms), publish the results in an attractive and easy-to-read format (reports), and extract the data you need (queries). This book shuns the big Access picture and instead focuses intently on forms, reports, and queries. This in-depth approach will give you the knowledge and understanding you need to get at the data and prove the old saw that knowledge is power.- Focuses on the three technologies that you must master to get the most out of Access: forms, reports, and queries.- Avoids database theory in favor of practical know-how that you can put to use right away.- Packed full of real-world examples and techniques to help you learn and understand the importance of each section.- Covers what's new and changed in Microsoft Access 2007.
