This book focuses on the many enhancements in Sybase ASE 15 including system administration enhancements, function-based indexes, computed columns, scrollable cursors, galaxy optimizer, query plan, galaxy partitions, multiple tempdb, MDA tables, andn Plan Viewer.
We’ve read the newsgroups. We’ve seen the blogs. We know you’re out there. The talented Sybase database administrators, developers, managers, and users are out there. This book is for you.
We will attempt to guide you, the reader, through the enhancements of ASE 15. In addition to the enhancements, we will also discuss how these enhancements can be applied to a “real-life” situation. We have polled many fellow database administrators about their thoughts on Sybase ASE regarding the new features. We have tried to incorporate as many of these ideas as possible.
The audience for this book is wider than just database administrators. This book can be used by managers to foresee possible project direction for more than just the next release of a product or application. It can assist the system architect in determining the best solution for enterprise applications. It can be used to educate the developer about features that are now available that will make the development process easier and more manageable. But most importantly, this book is for the database administrator. This book will guide you through the practical use of the new features in Sybase ASE 15.
This book is an overview of the new features available in ASE 15. We also touch on some existing features that were implemented since the last series of administration guides was released. These preexisting features were deemed worthy of reference based on the overall ASE road map for future releases and the direction of Sybase toward a flexible product geared toward service-oriented architecture (SOA). We will demonstrate and clarify the new features and how they integrate into existing systems.
