Practical Oracle SQL: Mastering the Full Power of Oracle Database

Write powerful queries using as much of the feature-rich Oracle SQL language as possible, progressing beyond the simple queries of basic SQL as standardized in SQL-92.
Both standard SQL and Oracle’s own extensions to the language have progressed far over the decades in terms of how much you can work with your data in a single, albeit sometimes complex, SQL statement. If you already know the basics of SQL, this book provides many examples of how to write even more advanced SQL to huge benefit in your applications, such as: Pivoting rows to columns and columns to rowsRecursion in SQL with MODEL and WITH clausesAnswering Top-N questionsForecasting with linear regressionsRow pattern matching to group or distribute rowsUsing MATCH_RECOGNIZE as a row processing engineThe process of starting from simpler statements in SQL, and gradually working those statements stepwise into more complex statements that deliver powerful results, is covered in each example. By trying out the recipes and examples for yourself, you will put together the building blocks into powerful SQL statements that will make your application run circles around your competitors. What You Will LearnTake full advantage of advanced and modern features in Oracle SQLRecognize when modern SQL constructs can help create better applicationsImprove SQL query building skills through stepwise refinementApply set-based thinking to process more data in fewer queriesMake cross-row calculations with analytic functionsSearch for patterns across multiple rows using row pattern matchingBreak complex calculations into smaller steps with subquery factoringWho This Book Is For
Oracle Database developers who already know some SQL, but rarely use features of the language beyond the SQL-92 standard. And it is for developers who would like to apply the more modern features of Oracle SQL, but don’t know where to start. The book also is for those who want to write increasingly complex queries in a stepwise and understandable manner. Experienced developers will use the book to develop more efficient queries using the advanced features of the Oracle SQL language.
