MySQL version 5 offers a SQL dialect with immense power. In SQL for MySQL Developers, Rick F. van der Lans helps you master this version of SQL and take advantage of its full potential. Using case study examples and hands-on exercises, van der Lans illuminates every key concept, technique, and statement (including advanced features) that make it easier to create even the most complex statements and programs.

Drawing on decades of experience as an SQL standards team member and enterprise consultant, he reveals exactly why MySQL’s dialect works as it does–and how to get the most out of it. You’ll gain powerful insight into everything from basic queries to stored procedures, transactions to data security.


Whether you’re a programmer, Web developer, analyst, DBA, or database user, this book can take you from “apprentice” to true SQL expert. If you’ve used SQL in older versions of MySQL, you’ll become dramatically more effective–and if you’re migrating from other database platforms, you’ll gain practical mastery fast.
