One of the problems with having plenty of development options is that it’s sometimes hard to figure out which one might be the best choice for your particular needs. Everyone wants as much flexibility as possible (as many choices as they can possibly have), but they also want things to be very cut and dried—in other words, easy. Oracle presents developers with almost unlimited choice. No one ever says, “You can’t do that in Oracle”; rather, they say, “How many different ways would you like to do that in Oracle?” I hope that this book will help you make the correct choice.
This book is aimed at those people who appreciate the choice but would also like some guidelines and practical implementation details on Oracle features and functions. For example, Oracle has a really neat feature called parallel execution. The Oracle documentation tells you how to use this feature and what it does. Oracle documentation does not, however, tell you when you should use this feature and, perhaps even more important, when you should not use this feature. It doesn’t always tell you the implementation details of this feature, and if you’re not aware of them, this can come back to haunt you (I’m not referring to bugs, but the way the feature is supposed to work and what it was really designed to do).
In this book I strove to not only describe how things work, but also explain when and why you would consider using a particular feature or implementation. I feel it is important to understand not only the “how” behind things, but also the “when” and “why”—as well as the “when not” and “why not”!
