This book presents the key features of SQL in an easy to understand format with updated code examples. The material covers transactions, constructs, embedded databases, object-oriented programming, and MySQL, a very popular open source database.
This book is a compact comparative reference for several SQL language dialects. It lists particular common tasks and problems resolved in terms of several SQL server implementations. When possible, it tries to emphasize an universal solution.
