To introduce attendees to the Texql query language interface for Texpress databases. This language is functionally a superset of the standard SQL language and incorporates facilities for text retrieval and nested tables.
Who Should Attend
This course is an essential step for developers wanting to use Texapi - the express Applications Programming Interface for C and C++. The course is also appropriate for Texpress users ready to explore different query interfaces to their databases.
This course is a two day workshop. Each attendee has exclusive access to a PC or terminal connected to a Unix host on which Texpress is installed. Attendees develop and test a range of query, insert, update and delete statements on their own databases and run Texql interactively and in batch mode.
This course assumes that attendees are conversant with Texpress at a user level and are familiar with the query and data manipulation facilities it provides. Some familiarity with Unix and/or SQL would also be considered advantageous.
