About this book


The book describes the major components of Oracle such as SQL*Plus, PL/SQL, indexing, security and integrity, and distributed databases. Underlying principles are also described: there are chapters on the objectives of database systems and on the relational model.
Its broad coverage also includes database design techniques such as normalisation and entity-relationship modelling.
The Oracle application development tools: SQL*Forms version 3 and SQL*Reportwriter are covered, since these tools are still widely used in universities and in industry.
In preparation for Oracle version 8, object oriented concepts and the object-relational model are described.
