In an effort to increase its marketshare and threat to Windows NT, Oracle8 was ported to Linux in late 1998, opening the popular database to an additional 10 million Linux users worldwide. The availability of Oracle8 enables current Linux users to deploy enterprise-class applications at low cost and provides an alternative to Microsoft Windows NT. This book covers that marriage of the most popular database and the fastest growing operating system.
* Complete coverage. Covers both Oracle8i and Oracle8i Lite, as well as Oracle Applications, Oracle Applications Server, and Oracle Developer
* Organizations and Oracle database administrators will be looking for information on Linux as is gets adopted - this book fits the bill
* Covers two growth markets and fills a need for information not covered elsewhere

From the Publisher:

This book is intended primarily for database administrators and Linux users who want to improve their skills and understanding of various databases. We hope you will come away with a better understanding of database design and implementation in general. This book will give you a better understanding of the Linux operating system when it is used as a database server.

For the purposes of this book, we have presented a shopping cart scenario to illustrate some of the uses and potential of databases. Web servers are a key element in utilizing databases on the Web, and we have provided a short overview of many of the most popular ones today. Overall, we hope you find this book a useful reference that will assist your efforts in bringing up a database on Linux for whatever purpose.---Amy Pedersen, Publisher, Syngress Media, Inc.

David's first "hobby-turned-job" was as a Z80 Assembler and C Language programmer for five years. David transitioned into a VMS/ UNIX/ NT/ PC Systems Integration Consultant and Technology Instructor -- "An Edutainer" -- during the past 15 years. David is still consulting and writing the occasional book, but mostly contracting as a Course Director and Course Writer of Unix-, NT- and Linux-based courses for Global Knowledge Inc. of Cary, NC.

Technical Editor Chris Rogers has been configuring Linux servers since 1994. To give an idea of how long that is in terms of the computing industry, the Web browser was Mosaic, Netscape 0.9 had just hit the FTP sites, and the Slackware distribution without X-windows could still fit on only three 3.5" diskettes. Chris is now CEO of PowerStreak Networks, a Management Services Provider that specializes in managing customer networks using Linux servers.

Paul Zikopoulos is a database specialist with the IBM Global Sales Support team. He has more than seven years of experience with DB2 and has written many magazine articles and books about DB2, including DB2:The Complete Reference (Osborne/McGraw-Hill, 2001), with Roman Melynk.
