Designing XML Databases (Goldfarb XML)
Designing XML Databases (Goldfarb XML)
by Mark Graves
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Summary Review, 4 Dec. 2002
The book is very detailed and contains a lot of information.
It reads like a PHD thesis - not very inspiring. (Minus 1 star)
He gives an introduction of database systems and XML but I imagine that neither are sufficient to fully grasp what he goes on to say. ( Minus 1 star)
The content is excellent and he uses very good examples and is methodical about the way it is presented.
I was hoping to find out how to implement XML into an existing database. Mission accomplished, although not much in the way of vendor specific information here.
I just found it rather excessive in things I didn't want to know about and slight in the information that I required - but hey, it's called designing databases, so guess what...lots of design methodologies etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb detailed view of oracle database, 26 Mar. 2002
This is the best book I've purchased so far.
I've a total of 9 oracle books on my book shelf and this is by far the best.
It is the way it is so well written; almost narratively. He gives details of the particular subject and interjects with the way it should 'really' be done. Oracle has so many different ways of doing the same thing and he points out the best ways.
There is also alot of technical information squeezed into a mere 1200 odd pages.
Even with limited Oracle knowledge this is the best introduction you could get if you've a few years general database experience already.
Read it and then read it again!!!
