In order to build effective database applications, you must gain a thorough understanding of these features. This book provides you with a comprehensive introduction to the T SQL language and shows you how it can be used to work with both the SQL Server 2000 and 2005 releases. Beginning with an overview of the SQL Server query operations and tools that are used with T SQL, the author goes on to explain how to design and build applications of increasing complexity. By gaining an understanding of the power of the T SQL language, you ll be prepared to meet the ever increasing demands of programming. What you will learn from this book: how T SQL provides you with the means to create tools for managing hundreds of databases; various programming techniques that use views and stored procedures; ways to optimize query performance; and, how to create databases that will be an essential foundation to applications you develop later. This book is for database developers and administrators who have not yet programmed with Transact SQL.
Some familiarity with relational databases and basic SQL is helpful, and some programming experience is helpful.
