Learn SQL basics quickly with this visual tutorial featuring over 125 graphics SQL (Structured Query Language) is the tool used to access nearly all databases, which means that most software professionals should understand at least the basics. This hands-on tutorial offers an accessible introduction to SQL using over 125 graphics to illustrate the lessons. The book's unique visual approach makes it much easier for the reader to learn SQL. This Second Edition has been updated with new graphics and covers such subjects as the SELECT statement, joins, subqueries, views, granting and revoking privileges, and creating and destroying tables.
A Visual Introduction to SQL Structured Query Language (SQL) is the standard tool for retrieving information from relational databases. A Visual Introduction to SQL shows how the apparent complexity of a SQL query can be resolved into transparent clarity using a simple visual representation. A breakthrough approach to understanding SQL, the graphical technique shown on the book’s cover is the basis of this example-filled book, allowing anyone to understand and use SQL. No prior knowledge of database systems is assumed, so whether you are seeing SQL for the first time or already have some experience with the language, A Visual Introduction to SQL is for you: For SQL beginners, the book’s unique graphical approach makes learning this sometimes unfriendly language much easier; For those with some SQL experience, A Visual Introduction to SQL provides an understanding of the language’s underlying structure, thus making the construction of even complex queries intuitively obvious; For daily SQL users, the wealth of examples contained in this book provide quick, easy-to-reference answers to frequently asked questions. No matter what SQL system you use, A Visual Introduction to SQL is essential to your understanding of the language. Foreword by David Liddle, Chairman and Cofounder of Metaphore Computer Systems.
Datenbanken sind das beste Werkzeug, um wichtige Informationen im Auge zu behalten. Mit SQL k?nnen die vorhandenen Daten strukturiert und zielsicher abgefragt werden. In "SQL f?r Dummies" macht Allen G. Taylor die Leser mit der Abfragesprache SQL und dem aktuellen Standard SQL:2011 verst?ndlich und humorvoll vertraut. Er beginnt mit dem notwendigen Grundlagenwissen f?r den Aufbau eines Datenbankmanagementsystems und den SQL-Hauptkomponenten, zeigt auf, wie man die Daten erstellt, ordnet und abfragt und SQL-Anweisungen in Programme einbindet. Zudem erkl?rt er, wie SQL mit XML verkn?pft werden kann, um Websites mit einer Datenbank zu verbinden. Au?erdem gibt es jede Menge Profi-Informationen, wie man zum Beispiel Datenbanken und Daten sch?tzen kann und Fehler lokalisiert und behebt.
SQL kann Spaß machen! Es ist ein erhebendes Gefühl, eine verworrene Datenmanipulation oder einen komplizierten Report mit einer einzigen Anweisung zu bewältigen und so einen Haufen Arbeit vom Tisch zu bekommen. Einführung in SQL bietet einen frischen Blick auf die Sprache, deren Grundlagen jeder Entwickler beherrschen muss. Die aktualisierte 2. Auflage deckt die Versionen MySQL 6.0, Oracle 11g und Microsoft SQL Server 2008 ab. Außerdem enthält sie neue Kapitel zu Views und Metadaten. SQL-Basics - in null Komma nichts durchstarten: Mit diesem leicht verständlichen Tutorial können Sie SQL systematisch und gründlich lernen, ohne sich zu langweilen. Es führt Sie rasch durch die Basics der Sprache und vermittelt darüber hinaus eine Reihe von häufig genutzten fortgeschrittenen Features. Mehr aus SQL-Befehlen herausholen: Alan Beaulieu will mehr vermitteln als die simple Anwendung von SQL-Befehlen: Er legt Wert auf ein tiefes Verständnis der SQL-Features und behandelt daher auch den Umgang mit Mengen, Abfragen innerhalb von Abfragen oder die überaus nützlichen eingebauten Funktionen von SQL. Die MySQL-Beispieldatenbank: Es gibt zwar viele Datenbankprodukte auf dem Markt, aber welches wäre zum Erlernen von SQL besser geeignet als MySQL, das weit verbreitete relationale Datenbanksystem? Der Autor hilft Ihnen, eine MySQL-Datenbank anzulegen, und nutzt diese für die Beispiele in diesem Buch. Übungen mit Lösungen: Zu jedem Thema finden Sie im Buch gut durchdachte Übungen mit Lösungen. So ist sichergestellt, dass Sie schnell Erfolgserlebnisse haben und das Gelernte auch praktisch umsetzen können.
Since 1994 when he wrote his first “Hitchhiker’s Guide”, William Vaughn has been providing developers all over the world the intimate details of how SQL Server can be accessed and managed from RAD languages like Visual Basic and Visual Basic .NET. With the 7th Edition, Bill has completely rewritten this encyclopedic work from cover to cover–giving readers his insightful views on how applications should be built to maximize both developer and code performance. Visual Studio and the languages it hosts have never been as sophisticated as they are today–the same can be said for SQL Server. This makes it even more important for developers to understand how to best leverage their features without being held back by their complexity. That’s what this book is all about–making it easier for developers regardless of their know-how. The 7th edition is unique in that it’s designed to provide not only up-to-date tutorials on the latest development tools provided by Visual Studio and SQL Server, but also a solid platform of architectural advice and rich examples for developers trying to choose between the myriad of platform options. Beginners and experts alike will find comprehensive step-by-step instructions that can make the reader’s introduction to the latest versions of Visual Studio and SQL Server far easier. Key topic coverage includes: • Data access architectures and how to choose the best strategy for Windows Forms, ASP.NET, XML Web Services, and SQL Server CLR executables. Where do these make sense and how much will they cost to build and maintain? • SQL Server and relational database fundamentals and inner-machinery. How does SQL Server work and why is it important that developers know? • Making the development experience more productive through judicious use of the Visual Studio toolset, and how to know when the wizards can help. • Using the latest ADO.NET data provider efficiently and safely. • How to protect the security of your database–and your job–by avoiding common mistakes. • How to build secure, efficient, scalable applications in less time with fewer resources–how to create faster code faster. • How to leverage the potential of SQL Server CLR executables and knowing when these features make sense. • How to work with your DBA to maintain database integrity and security. • Working with the new Visual Studio report controls to expose your organization’s data safely and easily with or without leveraging existing SQL Server Reporting Services technology. William R. Vaughnis the President of Beta V Corporation and a Microsoft MVP. In 2000 he retired from Microsoft after 14 years to focus on mentoring, speaking, and writing. His specialty is data access application design especially when connecting to SQL Server–over the years he’s written 12 books on the subject.
