Beginning Transact-SQL with SQL Server 2000 and 2005
Transact-SQL is a powerful implementation of the ANSI standard SQL database query language. 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
- How to create databases that will be an essential foundation to applications you develop later
