The SQL database language is the foundation of all relational database activities. This training Oracle 11g course is intended to provide an introduction to SQL within the context of an Oracle database. Since the language is an industry standard, much of the course contents are also applicable to other databases, such as MS SQL Server, IBM DB2, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and others. This guide takes a unique approach to learning the language, in that it combines the data modeling theory, graphical illustrations of the logical concepts and many examples of actual syntax to help one truly grasp the power of the SQL language. Among the specific topics we will explore are: - A summation of relational database principles and an introduction to the Oracle relational database server;- Using SQL Developer and other available SQL interfaces to the database;- Writing simple SQL queries which isolate exactly the data desired, and then format and sort the query results as needed;- Writing moderately complex SQL queries using various join techniques;- Supplement SQL code with references to pseudo columns and built-in system functions;- Summarizing, grouping and combining data to obtain more meaningful query results and to allow one to draw conclusions and make business decisions based upon the data processed;- Advanced query techniques such as set operations, sub-queries and summary functions, allowing one to solve some of the more complex theoretical query challenges; - Creating and maintaining database tables using the SQL Data Definition Language (DDL); - Managing data within tables using the SQL Data Manipulation Language (DML); - Taking advantage of the latest features found within the database such as the use of regular expressions, support for international data, time zones and other topics.This guide takes a unique approach to learning the language, in that it combines the data modeling theory, graphical illustrations of the logical concepts and many examples of actual syntax to help one truly grasp the power of the SQL ...
