Beginning T-SQL is a performance-oriented introduction to the T-SQL language underlying the Microsoft SQL Server database engine. T-SQL is essential in writing SQL statements to get data into and out of a database. T-SQL is the foundation for business logic embedded in the database in the form of stored procedures and functions. Beginning T-SQL starts you on the path to mastering T-SQL, with an emphasis on best-practices and sound coding techniques leading to excellent performance. This new edition is updated to cover the essential features of T-SQL found in SQL Server 2014, 2012, and 2008. Beginning T-SQL begins with an introduction to databases, normalization, and to SQL Server Management Studio. Attention is given to Azure SQL Database and how to connect to remote databases in the cloud. Each subsequent chapter teaches an aspect of T-SQL, building on the skills learned in previous chapters. Exercises in most chapters provide an opportunity for the hands-on practice that leads to true learning and distinguishes the competent professional. Important techniques such as windowing functions are covered to help write fast executing queries that solve real business problems.
XML has been developed as a standard data format for information storage and exchange. In most XML database systems, queries are processed by searching the hierarchy of each underlying XML document. Similar to relational databases, most XML documents are actually designed based on the relationship among such semantic concepts as object, attribute and value. Moreover, queries are also issued with concerns of these concepts, e.g., to find the attribute values of a certain object or to find the relationship between two objects. This book presents a new approach to process XML queries. We take semantics as a central concern during XML query processing. We design semantics-based algorithms to perform pattern matching, which is the core operation for XML query processing, as well as grouping and aggregation for analytical queries. We theoretically and experimentally show the advantage of our semantic approach over other existing approaches, in terms of query processing performance. This result should be useful for future research and applications in XML data management.
This book is intended for anyone starting out with PHP programming. If you’ve previously worked in another programming language such as Java, C#, or Perl, you’ll probably pick up the concepts in the earlier chapters quickly; however, the book assumes no prior experience of programming or of building Web applications. That said, because PHP is primarily a Web technology, it will help if you have at least some knowledge of other Web technologies, particularly HTML and CSS. Many Web applications make use of a database to store data, and this book contains three chapters on working with MySQL databases. Once again, if you’re already familiar with databases in general – and MySQL in particular – you’ll be able to fly through these chapters. However, even if you’ve never touched a database before in your life, you should still be able to pick up a working knowledge by reading through these chapters.
Taking readers through the basics of the language, right up to some more advanced topics, this book is a practical, hands-on resource and aims to keep the reader involved at all times Focuses on the SQL standard and is loaded with detailed examples and code; each chapter includes practice exercises that readers can challenge themselves with before looking at the sample solutions in the appendix Paul Wilton is a successful Wrox «Beginning» book author and is an ideal author to write for those who want a firm grasp of standard SQL before learning the details specific to a particular database product SQL is an international standard for manipulating data in databases and is used by database programmers in all major database systems: Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, MySQL, and many others
In present day scenario most of the organizations, handles text or critical data in databases, excel or text files. They use associated software’s to maintain the data. These data are however not web distributable or previewed across a browser. The application proposes a standard format to represent data that can be previewed across any browser. The format of the text that are used as inputs are databases such as Sql-Server, Oracle and access. Additionally inputs from Excel are used to migrate data and make it available on the web. Hence at the receivers end the system need not have associated software’s. Also text that is delimited can be converted to xml at runtime. The system enhances the facility as the source of data for databases can also be remote systems.
