Dedication Foreword Acknowledgments Introduction Chapter 1: Views Chapter 2: User-Defined Functions Chapter 3: Stored Procedures Chapter 4: Triggers Chapter 5: Transactions and Concurrency Chapter 6: Error Handling Chapter 7: Temporary Tables and Table Variables Chapter 8: Cursors Chapter 9: Dynamic SQL Chapter Working with Date and Time Chapter Data integrity is crucial for transactional systems; therefore, the chapter spends time discussing all kinds of constraints.
Finally, the chapter introduces normalization—the formal process of improving database design. This chapter was written by Dejan Sarka. Dejan is one of the people with the deepest understanding of the relational model that I know.
The fourth chapter covers query tuning.
It introduces a query tuning methodology we developed in our company SolidQ and have been applying in production systems. The chapter also covers working with indexes and analyzing execution plans.
This chapter provides the important background knowledge required for the rest of the chapters in both books, which as a practice discuss working with indexes and analyzing execution plans.
These are important aspects of querying and query tuning. The fifth chapter covers complexity and algorithms and was also written by Steve Kass.
This chapter particularly focuses on some of the algorithms used often by the SQL Server engine. It gives attention to considering worst-case behavior as well as average case complexity. By understanding the complexity of algorithms used by the engine, you can anticipate, for example, how the performance of certain queries will degrade when more data is added to the tables involved. Gaining a better understanding of how the engine processes your queries equips you with better tools to tune them.
The chapters that follow delve into advanced querying and query tuning, addressing both logical and physical aspects of your code. These chapters cover the following subjects: The chapter covering querying partitioned tables was written by Lubor Kollar. Lubor led the development of partitioned tables and indexes when first introduced in the product, and many of the features that we have today are thanks to his efforts.
Appendix A covers logic puzzles.
Here you have a chance to practice logical puzzles to improve your logic skills. SQL querying essentially deals with logic. I find it important to practice pure logic to improve your query problem-solving capabilities.
I also find these puzzles fun and challenging, and you can practice them with the entire family.
As I mentioned, Dejan is extremely knowledgeable in the relational model and has very interesting insights into the model itself and the way the constructs that he covers in his chapters fit in the model when used sensibly. The chapter about spatial data was written by Ed Katibah and Isaac Kunen.
It is a great privilege to have this chapter written by the designers of the feature. Spatial data support is new to SQL Server and brings new data types, methods, and indices. This chapter is not intended as an exhaustive treatise on spatial data or as an encyclopedia of every spatial method that SQL Server now supports.
Instead, this chapter will introduce core spatial concepts and provide the reader with key programming constructs necessary to successfully navigate this new feature to SQL Server. The chapter about tracking access and changes to data was written by Greg Low.
The technologies that are the focus of this chapter track access and changes to data and are new in SQL Server At first glance, these technologies can appear to be either overlapping or contradictory, and the best-use cases for each might be far from obvious.
This chapter explores each technology, discusses the capabilities and limitations of each, and explains how each is intended to be used. This chapter covers the architecture of SSB and how to use SSB to build a variety of reliable asynchronous database applications.
The major new features are Queue Priorities, External Activation, and a new SSB troubleshooting application that incorporates lessons the SSB team learned from customers who have already deployed applications. Chapter 8: Aggregating and Pivoting Data — Online.
