On the book’s website there are SQL scripts available for download that will create and populate the example database in both MySQL and MS SQL Server Express. Due to slight syntax, naming, and design differences between the two there are two separate scripts for creating the database – one for each product. While scripts to seed the database with data are broken down into several scripts, they work both on both products. This section discusses the creation script differences and also shows examples of the statements, but the full content of the scripts is not given here. Also, this section is not meant to be a full tutorial on creating a database; it is merely an introduction to the topic with some brief samples.
