Beginning Oracle Database 12c Administration provides information that you won't find in other books on Oracle Database. You'll discover not only technical information, but also guidance on work practices that are as vital to your success as are your technical skills. The author's favorite chapter is "The Big Picture and the Ten Deliverables." (It is the editor’s favorite chapter too!) If you take the lessons in that chapter to heart, you can quickly become a much better Oracle database administrator than you ever thought possible. You will grasp the key aspects of theory behind relational database management systems and learn how to: • Install and configure an Oracle database, and ensure that it’s properly licensed; • Execute common management tasks in a Linux environment; • Defend against data loss by implementing sound backup and recovery practices; and • Improve database and query performance.
* First book on the market that covers building high-performance Java applications on the Oracle database—using the latest versions of both the Oracle database (10g) and the JDBC API (3.0). * Promotes and explains an "anti black box" approach to Oracle development complete with benchmark code) that will allow developers to write highly efficient, high performance Oracle JDBC applications. * A new book from the prestigious OakTable Press, which Apress will be strongly promoting and supporting throughout 2004.
