The Oracle Database (commonly referred to as Oracle RDBMS or simply as Oracle) is an object-relational database management system produced and marketed by Oracle Corporation.An Oracle database system—identified by an alphanumeric system identifier or SID—comprises at least one instance of the application, along with data storage. An instance—identified persistently by an instantiation number

Create Database Objects Create a database Create a table Set a constraint Create a view Create a user
Manage the Data Import data Export data Backup the database Restore the database
User runs a query
Query is sent to the server
2 3 4
Results sent back to workstations
Database Query is run Server on server
Results are given to user
After completing this lesson, you should be able to
do the following:
Describe the main database objects
Describe the data types that can be used when specifying column definition
Alter table definitions
Drop, rename, and truncate tables
• Microsoft’s latest database object model • Allows VB programmers to use a standard set of objects to refer to data from any source • .NET approach uses disconnected datasets with common data representation (data types) from multiple sources
After completing this unit, you should be able to: List the characteristics of an XML document that help determine the right type of database, define and describe content management databases, compare relational database structures to XML document structures, list the limitations of relational data tables with structured data, define and describe what Object-Oriented databases provide, describe the status of XML-based queries.
In this chapter, you will learn about extensions to DBMSs for objects, combinations of complex data and operations. This chapter provides a broad introduction to object DBMSs. You will first learn about the business reasons to extend database technology. This chapter discusses the increasing use of complex data and the mismatch between DBMSs and programming languages as the driving forces behind object database technology.
This manual describes all features of the Oracle database server, an object-relational
database management system. It describes how the Oracle database server
functions, and it lays a conceptual foundation for much of the practical information
contained in other manuals. Information in this manual applies to the Oracle
database server running on all operating systems.
In Oracle Database, the OracleJVM has a new memory model for sessions that connect
to the database through a dedicated server. Since a session using a dedicated server is
guaranteed to use the same process for every database call, the Process Global Area is
used for session specific memory and object allocations. This means that some of the
objects and resources that used to be reclaimed at the end of each call can now live
Oracle Database Application Developer's Guide - Object-Relational Features describes
how to use the object-relational features of the Oracle Server, 10g Release 1 (10.1).
Information in this guide applies to versions of the Oracle Server that run on all
platforms, and does not include system-specific information. Oracle Database Application Developer's Guide - Object-Relational Features is intended
for programmers developing new applications or converting existing applications
to run in the Oracle environment.
After completing this lesson, you should be able to do the following:
Explain the advantages of SQL Apply
Explain when to use a logical standby database
Create a logical standby database by using Enterprise Manager

We wrote this book for business school students who wanted an in-depth look at how business
firms use information technologies and systems to achieve corporate objectives.
Information systems are one of the major tools available to business managers for achieving
operational excellence, developing new products and services, improving decision making,
and achieving competitive advantage.
When interviewing potential employees, business firms often look for new hires who
know how to use information systems and technologies for achieving bottom-line business
This book will introduce you to one of the most important extensions to PHP that are available, starting with PHP version 5.0—the PHP Data Objects, commonly known as PDO.
PHP grew in to a very popular web programming language due to its simplicity and ease of use. One of the key factors of this growing success is the built-in possibility to access many popular relational database management systems (RDBMS), such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite, to name just a few.
BookParadise is an online library management system used by a library in Seattle. The software makes use of SQL Server 2005 databases. Information about thousands of books are maintained and updated regularly. In the recent few years, BookParadise has grown in size after receiving international funding and the number of books has increased tremendously.
Designed to exploit Oracle 10g's SQL, this book takes a comprehensive look at Oracle 10g's analytical functions, MODEL statements, and regular expressions. In addition, Advanced SQL Functions in Oracle 10g covers collection objects and object-oriented structures and introduces new Oracle 10g topics such as XML and statistical functions. The authors' logical and developmental approach to query building includes a review of older Oracle tools to help in the transition to newer material. This text will teach the reader how to: Format result sets with SQL*Plus reporting tools.
So far in this manual we have learned a lot. You should now know how to enter data into a table, create different types of database objects, use templates, and get the tables of data to look the way you want. In this section we will learn more about the other major types of database objects like forms, reports, and queries.
Managed code runs in the .NET CLR. SQL Server 2005 integrates CLR to allow execution of managed code within the SQL Server environment. This provides flexibility in writing the database code in multiple languages supported by .NET. Managed code also takes advantage of the programming languages to implement complex programming logic in database objects, such as stored procedures and triggers.
Performance problems are rarely “problems” per se. They are more often “crises” during which you’re pressured for results by a manager standing outside your cubicle while your phone rings with queries from the help desk. You won’t have the time for a leisurely perusal of the manuals, nor to lean back and read a book on theory. What you need in that situation is a book of solutions, and solutions are precisely what Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Recipes delivers.
