How to retrieve data with the SQL SELECT statement

BrentSheets Brent Sheets Profile: BrentSheets

Overview: This book is designed to teach application developers all of the skills they need to use SQL to work with a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database. But it’s also a great first book for developers who are on the path to becoming a DBA. Unlike most SQL Server 2008 books, this one starts by showing you how to use SQL queries to extract and update the data in a database, because that’s what every application developer needs to know first.”

This free chapter has been selected from Murach’s SQL Server 2008 for Developers by Mike Murach & Associates. Post a comment below letting us know what think about the chapter or any books you’d like to see featured here. Enjoy.

How to use Oracle SQL Developer and other tools

BrentSheets Brent Sheets Profile: BrentSheets

Overview: PL/SQL is Oracle’s procedure language that allows you to code loops, if-else structures, and error-handling structures to build more complex scripts. That, in turn, allows you to manage transactions that maintain data integrity in a database. And it allows you to create stored procedures, functions, and triggers – named blocks of PL/SQL code that are stored in the database for ready access.

This shiny new blog is dedicated to providing members with a wide selection of free sample chapters from relevant enterprise IT and development books. I’ve included related resources for additional help. Be forewarned, some chapters may have limited availability — so get them while you can.

This free chapter download is taken from Murach’s Oracle SQL and PL/SQL by Mike Murach & Associates. When you finish reading the chapter, please share your thoughts with fellow members by posting a comment below. Thanks and enjoy the free chapter.
