The book has been written to provide an excellent grounding to those who wish to learn ANSI SQL using MySQL 5. This book also has several illustrative examples, which have a logical link between them.
Each set of examples helps build skills that will take the reader to the next set of examples, which in turn leads upwards until a strong programming foundation using the natural language of MySQL has been established.
Learning of SQL is done thought the construction of a Sales Management System. The skills thus developed are strongly firmed up via hands on exercises based on the construction of a Human Resource Management System. Additionally, exclusive significance is given to new features supported by MySQL 5 such as Stored Procedures, Transactions, Cursors, Views, Sub Queries and so on. A special section covering data replication implementation using MySQL 5 is included.
