The implementation of stored procedures in MySQL 5.0 a huge

milestone -- one that is expected to lead to widespread enterprise adoption of

the already extremely popular MySQL database. If you are serious about

building the web-based database applications of the future, you need to

get up to speed quickly on how stored procedures work -- and how to

build them the right way. This book, destined to be the bible of stored

procedure development, is a resource that no real MySQL programmer can

afford to do without.

In the decade since MySQL burst on the scene, it has become the

dominant open source database, with capabilities and performance

rivaling those of commercial RDBMS offerings like Oracle and SQL

Server. Along with Linux and PHP, MySQL is at the heart of millions of

applications. And now, with support for stored procedures, functions,

and triggers in MySQL 5.0, MySQL offers the programming power needed

for true enterprise use.

MySQL's new procedural language has a straightforward syntax, making it

easy to write simple programs. But it's not so easy to write secure,

easily maintained, high-performance, and bug-free programs. Few in the

MySQL world have substantial experience yet with stored procedures, but

Guy Harrison and Steven Feuerstein have decades of combined expertise.

In "MySQL Stored Procedure Programming," they put

that hard-won experience to good use. Packed with code examples and covering

everything from language basics to application building to advanced

tuning and best practices, this highly readable book is the one-stop

guide to MySQL development. It consists of four majorsections:

MySQL stored programming fundamentals -- tutorial, basic

statements, SQL in stored programs, and error handling

Building MySQL stored programs -- transaction handling,

built-in functions, stored functions, and triggers

MySQL stored programs in applications -- using stored

programs with PHP, Java, Perl, Python, and .NET (C# and VB.NET)

Optimizing MySQL stored programs -- security, basic and

advanced SQL tuning, optimizing stored program code, and programming

best practices

A companion web site contains many thousands of lines of code, that you

can put to use immediately.
