Jan 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Object-oriented database management systems are growing in popularity, thanks to changing corporate needs and the emergence of several viable products. However, while most database professionals have had at least some exposure to the basic concepts of object-oriented programming, information relating specifically to object-oriented databases has remained hard to come by.
Object-Oriented Database Design Clearly Explained remedies this, providing developers and administrators with a ground-up understanding of the logical design of object-oriented databases. Focusing on the principles of the object paradigm while noting the particularities of specific products, this book will give readers the know-how required to produce effective designs in any environment.

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...



Foundation for Object / Relational Databases
Chris J. Date

Paperback
·
 
From the Inside Flap
The Third Manifesto is a detailed proposal for the future direction of data and database management systems (DBMSs). Like Codd's original papers on the relational model, it can be seen as an abstract blueprint for the design of a DBMS and the language interface to such a DBMS. In particular, it lays the foundation for what we believe is the logically correct approach to integrating relational and object technologies--a topic of considerable interest at the present time, given the recent appearance in the marketplace of several "object/relational" DBMS products (sometimes called universal servers). Perhaps we should add immediately that we do not regard the idea of integrating relational and object technologies as "just another fad," soon to be replaced by some other briefly fashionable idea. On the contrary, we...

Programming the Perl DBI
Tim Bunce, Alistair Carty

February 4, 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The birth of new modules for the Perl scripting language is a regular occurrence, and the publication of an O'Reilly book about one of these modules is a sign of coming of age. Perl's DBI module, which facilitates the database-independent operation of Perl, achieves its rite of passage this month with the arrival of Alligator Descartes and Tim Bunce's excellent Programming Perl's DBI. Perl's DBI interface is maintained by Bunce and includes submodule interfaces to Oracle, MySQL, Sybase, Microsoft ODBC, and many other smaller databases. O'Reilly Perl book aficionados take note: this is the cheetah book, named for the animal that graces its cover.

Far from being a formalized how-to or man page, Programming Perl's DBI is a mini textbook in database programming, ideal for CPAN-savvy Perl programmers with little or no...

Database Systems Concepts
Abraham Silberschatz
0072958863
May 2005
Textbook Hardcover

Book Description

Database System Concepts, 5/e, is intended for a first course in databases at the junior or senior undergraduate, or first-year graduate, level. In addition to basic material for a first course, the text contains advanced material that can be used for course supplements, or as introductory material for an advanced course.

The authors assume only a familiarity with basic data structures, computer organization, and a high-level programming language such as Java, C, or Pascal. Concepts are presented as intuitive descriptions, and many are based on the running example of a bank enterprise. Important theoretical results are covered, but formal proofs are omitted. In place of proofs, figures and examples are used to suggest why a result is true.

The fundamental concepts and algorithms covered in the...



Practical Application of Object-Oriented Techniques to Relational Databases
Donald Burleson
0471612251
Mar 1994
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Until now, most books on object-oriented subjects were long on theory and short on application. Of course this, in large part, is due to the fact that object-oriented design is still a relatively new and emerging technology, and many of those involved with it are concerned with establishing the parameters for its use. Nevertheless, exciting new object-oriented applications and techniques are being developed every day, applications that would readily be adapted by professionals in their own systems, if only they knew how.

Designed for use with a capital "U," this book offers a wealth of proven programming strategies and constructs that enable "legacy" (already-exisiting) databases to function within the scope of an object-technology application.

Practical Application of Object-Oriented Techniques to...
