TechBookReport on 'Oracle Essentials'
Author: JT Smith
Oracle may or may not be the best RDBMS in the world, but it's certainly not the simplest. For the first time user, the Oracle landscape is a scary place to be. There are so many layers, tools, terminologies and technologies crowding the Oracle eco-system that it's all too easy to get that dazed and confused feeling. Add to that the moving targets created by each of the main releases (10g, 11g etc) and you'd be forgiven for seeking out some kind of guide book. Which is what Oracle Essentials pretty much sets out to be.
