Cocoa Programming: A Quick-Start Guide for Developers shows you how to get productive with Cocoa-fast! We won’t walk you through every class and method in the API (but we will show you where to find that information). Instead, we’ll jump right in and start building a web browser using Cocoa. In just a few minutes you’ll have something that works. A couple of minutes more, and you’ll have code in your custom controller, listening for notifications and call-backs. Soon you’ll have the functionality you’d expect in a full browser. And that’s just the first few chapters. . . . . . More >>

Advanced Oracle PL/Sql: Programming With Packages

Product Description
Steven Feuerstein’s first book, Oracle PL/SQL Programming, has become the classic reference to PL/SQL, Oracle’s procedural extension to its SQL language. His new book looks thoroughly at one especially advanced and powerful part of the PL/SQL language — the package. The use of packages can dramatically improve your programming productivity and code quality, while preparing you for object-oriented development in Oracle technology. In this book, Feuerstein explains how to construct packages — and how to build them the right way. His “best practices” for building packages will transform the way you write packages and help you get the most out of the powerful, but often poorly understood, PL/SQL language. Much more than a book, Advanced Oracle PL/SQL Programming with Packages comes with a PC diskette containing a full-use software companion. Developed by Feuerstein, RevealNet’s PL/Vision Lite is the first of its kind for PL/SQL developers: . . . More >>

Modeling Business Objects with XML Schema

Product Description
XML Schema is the new language standard from the W3C and the new foundation for defining data in Web-based systems. There is a wealth of information available about Schemas but very little understanding of how to use this highly formal specification for creating documents. Grasping the power of Schemas means going back to the basics of documents themselves, and the semantic rules, or grammars, that define them. Written for schema designers, system architects, programmers, and document authors, Modeling Business Objects with XML Schema guides you through understanding Schemas from the basic concepts, type systems, type derivation, inheritance, namespace handling, through advanced concepts in schema design.

*Reviews basic XML syntax and the Schema recommendation in detail.
*Builds a knowledge base model step by step (about jazz music) that is used throughout the book.
*Discusses Schema design in larg. . . More >>

Book Giveaway & Chapter Download: Mastering Oracle Scheduler in Oracle 11g Databases

Oracle Scheduler does a lot of out of the box things, and if the demands are not too high, Oracle Scheduler can cover most of the situations. When your application has to run many thousands of jobs in an hour and log them over a long period, a little more attention is needed. In cases where the demands are high, we need to take care of a few more things to keep the system happy. What we need to do depends on how the Scheduler is used and what kind of load it is supposed to handle.

In this chapter, we will take a closer look at how we can control this beast. We will take a look at the privileges for job creation, job execution, and Scheduler management. We will also examine how to control logging retention and find a way to prevent jobs from running when the database starts.

Job Creation

Like most object types in the database, as seen at the beginning of Chapter 1, Oracle enables us to create Scheduler objects. The privileges create job and create external job are very important. They should normally be used when building an application system . Also, there is a create any job privilege, which can be useful when you need to create a job in a different schema. Normally, this privilege should not be granted to anyone. It will allow the grantee to run an arbitrary code on any schema, which is not particularly desirable. Instead, just log on to the correct schema and perform the tasks using the correct privileges.
