Description

Thomas Kyte is vice president of the Core Technologies Group at Oracle Corporation and has been with . Expert One-on-One is the first book I reach for no matter what the subject. It's full of detailed explanations and examples.

Thomas Kyte is vice president of the Core Technologies Group at Oracle Corporation and has been with the company since version . 9 was released in 1993. Kyte, however, has been working with Oracle since version . At Oracle, Kyte works with the Oracle database, and more specifically, he helps clients who are using the Oracle database and works directly with them specifying and building their systems or rebuilding and tuning them. The best thing about Tom Kyte's writing is that his examples work!

Thomas Kyte has a simple philosophy: You can treat Oracle as a black box and shove data inside of it, or you can learn how Oracle works and exploit it as a powerful computing environment. If you choose the latter, you will see there are few information management problems you cannot solve quickly and elegantly. Kyte has selected the most important features and techniques to discuss in Expert One-on-One Oracle, which he teaches in a proof-by-example manner.

Expert One-on-One : Oracle. Oracle has extended its development platform to encapsulate a vast array of functionality into the Oracle 8i database and presents the developer with almost unlimited choice.

Expert One-On-One Oracle book. Tom Kyte is simply the best Oracle expert for me. His thoroughness, extreme competency and usage of other experts impresses me no end, oh and his humour and self deprecating manner are top. Very cool.

Expert One-on-One Oracle. The likely impact of design decisions on application behaviour and performance is also discussed, particularly where this relates to using, or not using, a database feature. Submitted by oakroot on Wed, 2010-03-17 17:05. Is this book out of date?

A proven best-seller by the most recognized Oracle expert in the world. The best Oracle book ever written. It defines what Oracle really is, and why it is so powerful.

This book attempts to cover dozens of subjects, and as such is 1,300 pages in length! Each subject contains gems of insight that had escaped me for some years now. I very much recommend this book if you are going to do any PL/Sql or Java coding. Read a chapter a day and really think about what Tom is saying. If you are really going to write industrial-strength code then you need this book, as Oracle Documentation and Oracle-Press books (I own several) tend to be quite shallow and omit explanations that Tom includes.
If there is a downside, it is that only a few pages are dedicated to any one subject, meaning that while there are many gems, this is not a book to learn the basics from and it does not cover any one subject completely. But then again, I have not seen an Oracle book that does. I wish Tom would write an entire series of books of this quality; I would buy it in a heart-beat!
P.S. Make sure that you get the 2003 version of this book from "APress", as I purchased one from the "New and Used" and got stuck with the 2001 version from "Oracle Press". Apparently Amazon does not require such disclosure.

This book belongs on every developer, team leader, or DBAs desk that works with Oracle. Kyte has written a masterpiece in advanced Oracle knowledge. He does three things very well in this book: tells you what is important in Oracle, why it is important, and what happens if you do things the wrong way.
Kyte starts out giving the foundations for Oracle databases, the architecture, locking schemes, and table and index considerations. He gives a good treatment of the types of tables and indexes that Oracle offers including the appropriate times to use them and the trade-offs to weigh.
Another key topic that he covers is redo and rollback. These features are handled in a unique way in Oracle, and a lack of understanding can lead to inefficient and incorrect databases and applications.
Armed with the foundations, Kyte then takes the reader through performance tuning and optimizing databases. The best advice in this section is that performance cannot be thrown in at the end. The design decisions for a database will determine how it performs and scales. As he says, "There is no fast=true setting in the init parameters."
Then the book tackles some more advanced features, such as autonomous transactions, dynamic sql, and C and Java extensions for stored procedures. Kyte again gives good advice for when these are appropriate over standard PL/SQL stored procedures.
The size of the book can be intimidating at first glance, but it is pleasant to read. Kyte uses a conversational style rather than a lecturing delivery. This book has a lot to offer, and you won't find yourself tired after reading it.
Wat!? Wat!?
I'm an Oracle DBA with 13 years experience, beginning with version 5 of the database (remember those MS-DOS floppies?).
About Tom Kyte: Tom is an acknowledged expert in the field; he is Vice President of the Core Technologies Group at Oracle. His web site is a terrific alternative source of information about Oracle. He also publishes the "Ask Tom" column in Oracle Magazine.
Tom Kyte's book is simply awesome. Every time I read another chunk of it, I learn something new. His depth and breadth of understanding is amazing. (If you think you are an Oracle expert, buy the book. You'll be amazed at how much more Tom can teach you.) His troubleshooting is really good too. He seems to know all of the places where people encounter problems with specific features, and includes great troubleshooting information where appropriate.
If you're hesitant to buy the book because it doesn't have "9i" stamped on it, buy it anyway! Believe me, you won't regret it! Remember: 9i is a superset of 8i, and a good understanding of 8i functionality will help you understand most of 9i too.
I also had the privilege of meeting Tom in person, during an Oracle 9iR2 presentation. He is a very generous with his time, but also perpetually busy answering questions on his web site (he was connected with a laptop and cell phone before he started the presentation). I asked him about the time it took to write the book, and he acknowledged that it took a major chunk out of his life. Be thankful that there is a person as knowledgable as Tom who is so willing to help the rest of us get up to speed!!

I have the previously published one, but I believe the book is substantially unchanged between publications. I just counted, I have 14 Oracle books that I have purchased, plus a whole bookshelf of 3-ring notebooks full of printed Oracle Documentation. Expert One-on-One is the first book I reach for no matter what the subject. It's full of detailed explanations and examples. The best thing about Tom Kyte's writing is that his examples work!

Plus he tells it like it is. If you didn't know anything about technology and wanted to manage a software development project, you could rip out the first 3 pages of this book, throw the rest of it away and you'd be better off than 95% of the managers out there.

The rest of the book is for us hands-on folks....

I bought this book on cheap clearance after the original publisher went out of business -- the best $12 I ever invested. Remembering even 10% of this book makes you better than 90% of Oracle developers, modelers and architects. Mr. Kyte's real world experience and reliance on solid examples instead of folklore makes this light-years ahead of any other Oracle book; it's the only Oracle book I re-read regularly. If you can afford only one Oracle book, this is it. And you may not need any other.

This book is fun to read! If there were a Pulitzer Prize for technical writing, it would go to Tom. I've read his advice for years. Not only does he give the best solutions, he is probably the kindest person on the web. There is no question too dumb. He consistently shows an uncommonly high amount of respect for the people he helps.
