Database Design for Mere Mortals: A Hands-On Guide to Relational Database Design
Michael J. Hernandez
0201752840
March 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Programmers and software architects don't really make a conscious decision to design an application (particularly one with online exposure) around the three-tier model-view-controller design pattern anymore. Three-tier, largely because of its adaptability and stability, is the norm. All of which means you need a database to underpin each of your applications. Designing your databases correctly can make the difference between slow-running, complicated code and software that's speedy, modular, and easy to work with. Database Design for Mere Mortals prepares someone with only a passing familiarity with databases for the important job of building the persistence layer (also called the data model) for software.

Michael Hernandez explains database design in tradesman's terms. That is, he shows his readers how to identify the...

Access Database Design & Programming, 3rd Edition
Steven Roman
0596002734
Jan 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Access Database Design and Programming covers a lot of ground quickly but lucidly. Steven Roman begins with a description of general principles of database design, then describes the "relational algebra" that defines the meaning of such operations as unions and joins, introduces SQL syntax, and finally dives into the details of using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) to write Access code. The result is a single book that can teach you all the basics of building database applications in Access. Portions of the book are heavy with logical equations whose effects can be hard to visualize, but Roman's judicious use of sample data makes it much easier to follow the operations being described. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Beginning MySQL Database Design and Optimization
Jon Stephens
1590593324
Oct 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Nearly every non-trivial application requires data persistence, and for an application of any significant size and scope, persistence is typically realized using a database. For open source and many other projects, the MySQL database is a very popular choice: it’s free; it’s fast, robust, and scalable; and it runs on all of the major platforms, allowing maximal use of available hardware resources. However, it’s easy to throw away MySQL’s speed and other advantages if your database design is inefficient. Needlessly duplicating data, using improper types for columns, overloading a single table where multiple tables should be used, failing to leverage the calculation features of MySQL, and making multiple queries instead of efficient, single query are some of the common mistakes. MySQL Database...


Web Database Applications with PHP & MySQL, 2nd Edition
Hugh E. Williams, David Lane (Editor)
0596005431
May 16, 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
PHP and MySQL go hand in hand; the former has been carefully adapted, through the efforts of the open-source community, to the latter. For situations that require dynamic content but don't merit the complexity and development time of Java or .NET enterprise applications, the PHP language and the MySQL database server fit the bill perfectly. That's the point Hugh Williams and David Lane make in Web Database Applications with PHP & MySQL, which combines language tutorials with application design advice to yield a comprehensive picture of its subjects at a reasonable price. Williams and Lane--both Australian academics who use an online wine store in many of their examples--deserve tremendous kudos for their way of presenting recommended coding strategies. Though the code listings themselves aren't remarkably well commented,...

Book Description

The problem: Your boss has demanded a database, and you don't know how to create one.

PHP and MySQL Web Development
Luke Welling
0672326728
October 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The PHP server-side scripting language and the MySQL database management system (DBMS) make a potent pair. Both are open-source products--free of charge for most purposes--remarkably strong, and capable of handling all but the most enormous transaction loads. Both are supported by large, skilled, and enthusiastic communities of architects, programmers, and designers. PHP and MySQL Web Development introduces readers (who are assumed to have little or no experience with the title subjects) to PHP and MySQL for the purpose of creating dynamic Internet sites. It teaches the same skills as introductory Active Server Pages (ASP) and ColdFusion books--technologies that address the same niche.

Authors Luke Welling and Laura Thomson's technique aims to get readers going on their own projects as soon as possible. They present...
