When you are searching for complicated SQL-Server innovations, this booklet isn't TOO undesirable. it's a reliable start line in the event you haven't had the chance to benefit from specialists or event already. yet, there's not anything very earth-shattering in the following, as I post a unfastened booklet approximately complex T-SQL set-based operations, large-database tuning, and extra that is going way past what's during this booklet. yet, it's higher than such a lot SQL-Server books out there, when you consider that many others appear like simply slightly greater than a help-file reprint.

Sample text

The content of the system ranges from critical information about criminals and criminal events to "nice-to-have" information about vampires and vipers. Critical information includes biographical data about criminals and relevant people and organizations, case histories from Holmes PLC and police files, and agony column entries. Here is some specific data that must persist: biographical and police information about criminals. There is also information about relevant other people, information about organizations (criminal, corporate, nonprofit, and so on), case history data, and media publications that reflect potential criminal or "interesting" activity.

The WITH COMPARISONS clause, in the best tradition of IBM, does nothing. It is there to remind you that the type supports the relational operators such as + and <, and all base types but BLOBs require it. Informix has a similar CREATE DISTINCT TYPE statement but doesn't have the WITH COMPARISONS. Both systems let you cast values to a type to tell the system that you mean the value to be of the specified type. " Both systems let you create conversion functions that casting operators use to convert values from type to type as appropriate.

Since this book is proposing to use 00 methods for designing databases, you will see a much stronger focus on class and abstract state than you might in a classical 00 design. Object Life Cycles The easiest way to see the life cycle of an object is to examine the interface of the ObjectFactory and Object classes in ODMG [Cattell and Barry 1997, p. 17]: interface ObjectFactory { Object new(); }; Interface Object { enum Lock_Type{read, write, upgrade} exception LockNotGranted{} void lock(in Lock_Type mode) raises (LockNotGranted); boolean try_lock(in Lock_Type mode); boolean same_as(in Object anObject); Object void copy(); delete(); }; The new() operator creates an object.
