New Relational Database Dictionary (New / Expanded) (Paperback) (C. J. Date)
About this item
As more and more people turn to databases for both large systems and small web-based applications, misunderstandings arise about the precise meaning of terms like "join", "instantiation", "view", and others. Those misunderstandings can affect design and programming that lead to problems down the road.
The New Relational Database Dictionary provides a single source where designers, programmers, students, and database administrators (DBAs) can find precise definitions. Authored by C.J. Date, a respected expert who is widely regarded as the developer of relational database technology while at IBM, this book is a complete compendium of terms and concepts used with relational databases such as Oracle products, IBM's DB2, Microsoft's SQL Server, Microsoft Access, MySQL, and PostgreSQL.
