  July 2003 Update — (06-July-2003)

Hello everyone. Hope you are enjoying the beginning of summer.
It has been awhile since my last newsletter and several major 
changes to the content and organization of the website have 
taken place.

As noted in my last newsletter, I will mention again that I 
continue to make updates to the Oracle -> DBA Tips -> Oracle9i 
New Features segment. This section should provide useful for 
those investing time in studying for the Oracle Certified 
Professional (OCP) exam. You will also find new features and 
technologies in the Oracle DBA Tips section for:

  -> Advanced Queuing
  -> Clustering Technologies
  -> LOBS
  -> XMLDB
  -> Oracle Objects

I reorganized the "Programming" section to include a collection 
of useful Java programming tips along with many others for PL/SQL, 
Tcl/TK, Perl, and C. One of the portions under Programming I will 
be spending some additional time on over the summer is the new 
"Data Structures and Algorithms" section. I will provide meaningful 
documentation on data structures along with implementations of them 
in Java and C. Also included will be ways in which to analyze some 
of the more common algorithms.

Not much work has been done on the MySQL section of the website. 
If anyone can provide any useful scripts or tips for posting to 
this section, I would greatly appreciate it.

As usual, if you have any comments or suggestions regarding the 
content or layout of the website, please let me know via email
