About this book

Now in its second edition, this best-selling book by Tom Kyte of "Ask Tom" fame continues to bring you some of the best thinking on how to apply Oracle Database to produce scalable applications that perform well and deliver correct results. Tom has a simple philosophy: you can treat Oracle as a black box and just stick data into it or you can understand how it works and exploit it as a powerful computing environment. If you choose the latter, then you’ll find that there are few information management problems that you cannot solve quickly and elegantly.

This fully revised second edition covers the developments up to Oracle Database 11g. Each feature is taught in a proof-by-example manner, not only discussing what it is, but also how it works, how to implement software using it, and the common pitfalls associated with it.

Don’t treat Oracle Database as a black-box. Get this book. Get under the hood. Turbo-charge your career.

  • Fully revised to cover Oracle Database 11g
  • Proof-by-example approach: Let the evidence be your guide
  • Dives deeply into Oracle Database’s most powerful features

About the authors

Thomas Kyte is vice president of the Core Technologies Group at Oracle Corporation and has been with the company since version 7.0.9 was released in 1993.

At Oracle, Kyte works with the Oracle database, and more specifically, he helps clients who are using the Oracle database and works directly with them specifying and building their systems or rebuilding and tuning them. Prior to working at Oracle, Kyte was a systems integrator who built large-scale, heterogeneous databases and applications for military and government clients.Tom Kyte is the same "Ask Tom" whose column appears in Oracle Magazine, where he answers questions about the Oracle database and tools that developers and database administrators struggle with every day.
