SQLServer 2005 represents the 2 major revision to SQLServer since that time, and, as we did the planning for this cycle of books, we realized that we once again had a problem — it was too big. The new features of SQLServer 2005 created a situation where there was simply too much content to squeeze into one book, and so we made the choice to split the old Professional series title into a Beginning and a more targeted Professional pair of titles. You are now holding the first half of that effort.
My hope is that you find something that covers all of the core elements of SQLServer with the same success that we had in the previous Professional SQLServer Programming titles. When we’re done, you should be set to be a highly functional SQLServer 2005 programmer, and, when you need it, be ready to move on to the more advanced Professional title.
Who This Book Is For
The beginning user will want to start right at the beginning. Things are designed such that just about everything in this book is a genuine “need to know” sort of thing. With the possible exception of the chapters on XML, Reporting Services and Integration Services, every item in this book is a fundamental item to you having the breadth of understanding you need to make well-informed choices on how you approach your SQLServer problems.
