5-0 out of 5 stars Want to advance your DB2/SQL skills?A "MUST HAVE"!
Buy this book!!! Some computer books are written by computer geeks who know 5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent choice.You get MORE than your money's worth!
Buy this book!!!Some computer books are written by computer geeks who know their technical stuff cold.They can't teach worth a darn, but they are deep technical wizards highly versed in techno-babble.The people who wrote the Murach series are NOT (let me repeat, the Murach folks are NOT) such people.It was the most amazing experience to have read this book, and to have the feeling that either Curtis Garvin or Anne Prince were looking directly over one's shoulder anticipating the various questions that inevitably arose.This book is incredibly well structured.It is written clearly, concisely, and with relevant in-depth examples.The authors take pains to ensure that they present their programming examples without (WITHOUT!!!) falling into the trap of disjointed techno-babble so common to such books.Again, you get more than your money's worth with this book.Buy it, and recommend it to anyone else who wants to learn or refresh their DB2/COBOL skills.

5-0 out of 5 stars DB2 for the COBOL Programmer
I started a new job and needed to learn DB2 in a hurry.I bought part 1 and part 2.I was coding in no time.But the best part is they make excellent reference books because they are laid out so well.These books are well worth the investment. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works for me!
I used this book to deploy Oracle 10g Applications through Oracle Developer Suite 10g and JDeveloper 10g. I felt that it was a good book and overall I have little ill to say about it. The examples are well written and do a good job of reinforcing what you read in the chapter. You read a little then do an example, then read some more, then add to the example and so on. You don't need any Programming experience to use this book just a decent understanding of programming logic. The only criticism I could offer is that the editor should have used arrows when content is being continued on a new line for reasons of page space so that readers will know and understand (beginners can have trouble with this). It's a good book for learning Oracle 10g Applications as a whole from the ground up and for this reason it's worth the money. It's not an overnight crash course (if that is what you are looking for).

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have book for the OracleDeveloper.
Great book.I've been waiting for this book to be release and I wasn't disappointed.Full of great information on how to put this great Oracle tool to work.Easy explanations and great examples will have you up and programming in no time.The authors real know their stuff.Great Job!If you use Oracle's application server, this book is a must have!
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on 10AS with the web
This is a much-needed title and Chris Ostrowski has done an excellent job in covering all of the topical areas of 10gAS web development.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for a Quick Introduction
This book makes for a well-written and relevant introduction for a beginner to DTS, which is what I was when I picked it up.
3-0 out of 5 stars The Book is Good but DTS is still full of bugs
The book is a good way for learning DTS.
3-0 out of 5 stars Too many "step by step"
I found the beggning chapters are good, but in the latter half, the number of steps became so many that it's painful to follow them. Chapter 7 has 70 pages of step-by-step and I found I am like a robot just going through the steps. (Well, I didn't do it until the end, I am not a robot).Read more

It would be easy to be secure if all the data were in one room, there were no connections to the outside world (well I guess you have to have power coming in, but that's all), and there were no people who knew the data.

4-0 out of 5 stars Can't review, the book never arrived!!
I'm still waiting for the book to get to my house. I bought it on February 17th. It's passed more than a month and the book hasn't arrived yet. It makes me mad.
5-0 out of 5 stars Well-Written, Comprehensive, the Reason I Now Use Firebird RDBMS
This book is very well crafted.It is organized and thorough.With this book, the Interbase 6.0 manuals (available free on-line in PDF) and the Firebird software, you can create and maintain high performance, industrial software for use in production in environments of any size.I can not reccommend this book highly enough.If you need a database for your next project, you owe it to yourself to try out Firebird SQL.Use Ms. Borrie's book as a guide.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing!
When I was buying this book, I was afraid if it will be only a printed version of PDF docs. But the book is much more, then simple documentation. Helen Borrie is a professional, and an experienced developer, so she often writes about programmer's bad habits or the reasons why databases are so poorly designed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Serriously flawed
I found this book to be seriously flawed in the following ways:
3-0 out of 5 stars Some of the foundation is good, but with problematic gaps
I am a newbie to MySQL/PHP. Truly. Many reviews of the O'Reilly series clearly have extensive backgrounds in programming. I do not: I had a little HTML under my belt, that's it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for learning the basics
Learning PHP & MySQL is a detailed guide to building a database-driven web site.The authors do an excellent job of starting from the beginning, assuming no prior knowledge of either PHP or MySQL.In fact the only assumptions that the authors seem to make is that you have a very basic understanding of HTML.After working through the book and the detailed examples anyone should be able to write basic programs the meet common needs as well as create and interface with a MySQL database.Some of the programming areas covered in the book include decision making, working with arrays, using functions, database design fundamentals (missing in most books), getting PHP to talk to MySQL, modifying objects and data, and security.At the end of the book the reader ends up with a complete example application.

3-0 out of 5 stars It would be a MUCH better book with a different title
While this work may be "The Official Guide" it is a long way from complete or authoratative. It is much more of an overview than a guide. It is an excleent overview or enhancements book for readers with a technical background.
5-0 out of 5 stars A great TECHNICAL review of DB2 UDB V8
This is a great book for what I do. I needed to keep on top of the new features in DB2 -- though for the wrong reasons (we are an Oracle business partner), I def'ly got to see all the new features with deep technical explanations and even examples; pretty neat stuff from IBM I must say. I looked at the What's New Guide that was referenced in other comments before buying this book, hoping to save a buck. Too bad they don't have a review forum for that book, horrible. All marketing fluff. Don't bother trying to find it -- it will only make you mad. Buy this book.

2-0 out of 5 stars Already covered in What's New Guide

5-0 out of 5 stars It's eye to improving processes and manageability can't be beat.
Any programmer or designer who wants a step-by-step tutorial to Pro Oracle Database 10gRAC on Linux must have this book: it surveys all details from installation to advanced administration and optimization, with chapters covering installations across multiple servers for all Oracle users. The book delivers RAC on Linux solutions through a series of explanations on configuration, tips on techniques, and more: it's eye to improving processes and manageability can't be beat.
5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait. Great job on Oracle 10g RAC for Linux!!!
Eager for this new Oracle 10g RAC book, I waited since I already am a big fan of both Julian Dyke's website for RAC implementations. Awesome job guys!!!! I have all the other RAC books and most of them stink. The insight and pleasant tips and reading style made it worth the wait. I am only on page 90 and so far really learn a lot. Even after several RAC projects over last couple years. I really like the coverage on how storage and Linux administration are treated with respect to implementing RAC for Oracle 10g. The treatment of other Oracle 10g topics such as ASM and OCFS also is quite excellent. I think that your RAC book for Linux along with Murali Vallath's Oracle 10g RAC book are best ones around. Period. If you are an Oracle DBA who needs a real hands on architecture guide to RAC for Linux, this is the book to get.

4-0 out of 5 stars The bible of RMAN
A full study about RMAN.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best book on market for RMAN and Backups
As a production DBA this is the best book so far since Velpuri wrote the original Oracle 8i backup and recovery book a decade ago. I like this a lot and together with the Oracle documentation, setting up and using RMAN is a snap compared to the pain it used to be to stumble with RMAN before. Throw away logical backups and hassle of SQL backups and use the power of RMAN. I was able to get cooking in a few hours with a good RMAN setup for our test and production database environments. Together with the Oracle 10g RAC book you have the complete knowledge to be a true HA Oracle DBA.

4-0 out of 5 stars GoodStuff, Piece of Art
I read this book when I was working on my OCP 9i track in 2004. At that time I needed more information about Backup and Recovery and especially Recovery Manager (RMAN)and I ended up borrowing this book from the library. I then put my exam study guide aside and finish this book. The book is really good. The part that I like the most is the book gives you scenarios that are easy to understand and it shows RMAN in different environment interacting with other storage media. I will definitely recommend this book. A book like this one does not come along very often. I am planning to buy my own copy soon. Great Job RG I give 4 stars. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Simply badly designed for exams
I believe that the writers made some bad choices when they first began to write this book. First of all, unlike most other certification books the exam goals are not together in one section. Instead there are whole chapters for queries, indexes, views, etc with all of the information about each topic in that chapter. So if you wanted to read about 'query optimization' you would have to read the sections within that chapter about query optimation from the queries chapter, from the index chapter, some from the views chapter, etc. So if you want to review a specific topic that you are not as good at you will be doing a lot of page flipping.
4-0 out of 5 stars This Won't Prepare You For 70-229 But a Good Starting Point.
This book is a very easy read, explains concepts clearly, but lacks the kind of detail necessary for passing the 70-229 exam, especially if you are taking this as an elective on the developer track. It will get you through most of what you need to know at 10,000 feet, but it will not take you to a passing score. It taught me things I had never used and for that it is well worth the time investment. I also love the fact that you can install the "e-book" on a laptop and a desktop at home and never carry the hard cover book around.

Editorial Review

This is the rare case of a book that can take you from a beginner to an advanced-intermediate level. Likemany of the books in IDG's Dummies series, this volume begins with a definition ("What is SQL?") andends with "The Part of Tens," a collection of tips in a top ten list form. Taylor writes in a breezy,entertaining style that SQL novices will find inviting. One caveat: The examples are given in Borland'sDelphi, a rapid application development (RAD) tool. Some sections show several screen shots from Delphiand it may be difficult to follow along in these sections if you don't have the program in front of you. Aswith other Dummies books, Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A proper start in SQL, nothing more
About a year ago, I was writing up a series of lessons for a course in Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC) that I was preparing for a local business. As is always the case, they needed the course right away, so I had little time to prepare the lessons. To illustrate what can be done using JDBC, I used the executeQuery() method of the Statement object. The executeQuery() method accepts an SQL command as input, so it was necessary for me to quickly brush up on SQL commands. This is the book I reached for to get myself back to speed on SQL commands. Like all ""For Dummies" books, it can be used to quickly learn the basics of the topic, although it has little use beyond the beginning. I found it adequate for my needs at the time, although when I needed to delve deeper into SQL for a later course, I went elsewhere.
1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely terrible
I have read several books in the Dummies series and found them all excellent, so when it was time to learn SQL for a programming project I got this one immediately.

This book was shipped to us in a very short period of time.We were very pleased with this purchase. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon doesnt have this book and did not deliver after 2 months too!
I have tried to buy this book from Amazon. When buying it says it will ship in 2-3 weeks, but even after two months Amazon keeps mailing that it would still be delayed by a month. Be careful while buying this book from amazon, as in my case the purpose is finshed before i even got the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Might be ok but...
I bought this book because I was trying to teach myself enough to become a Financials Developer.This still MIGHT be the right book for me.However, this is not a step by step guide to the installation.In addition, the book assumes some familiarity with accounting systems.

1-0 out of 5 stars It's not a handbook, just an brief overview
We should appreciate that this is the first book published on market talking about Oracle Financials.However, this is the book that contains only general introduction. It doesn't have any detail information either for functional users or technical persons.As an Oracle Financial developer with many years of experience, I don't get any useful information out of it.May be it's good for somebody who don't know Oracle Financials at all. ...
