Advanced Applications and Structures in XML Processing:Label Streams, Semantics Utilization and Data Query Technologies
Open and Novel Issues in XML Database Applications:Future Directions and Advanced Technologies Eric Pardede
Advanced data management has always been at the core of efficient database and information systems. Recent trends like big data and cloud computing have aggravated the need for sophisticated and flexible data storage and processing solutions.This book provides a comprehensive coverage of the principles of data management developed in the last decades with a focus on data structures and query languages. It treats a wealth of different data models and surveys the foundations of structuring, processing, storing and querying data according these models. Starting off with the topic of database design, it further discusses weaknesses of the relational data model, and then proceeds to convey the basics of graph data, tree-structured XML data, key-value pairs and nested, semi-structured JSON data, columnar and record-oriented data as well as object-oriented data. The final chapters round the book off with an analysis of fragmentation, replication and consistency strategies for data management in distributed databases as well as recommendations for handling polyglot persistence in multi-model databases and multi-database architectures. While primarily geared towards students of Master-level courses in Computer Science and related areas, this book may also be of benefit to practitioners looking for a reference book on data modeling and query processing. It provides both theoretical depth and a concise treatment of open source technologies currently on the market.
SQL Server Advanced Data Types:JSON, XML, and Beyond Peter A. Carter
Deliver advanced functionality faster and cheaper by exploiting SQL Server´s ever-growing amount of built-in support for modern data formats. Learn about the growing support within SQL Server for operations and data transformations that have previously required third-party software and all the associated licensing and development costs. Benefit through a better understanding of what can be done inside the database engine with no additional costs or development time invested in outside software. Widely used types such as JSON and XML are well-supported by the database engine. The same is true of hierarchical data and even temporal data. Knowledge of these advanced types is crucial to unleashing the full power that´s available from your organization´s SQL Server database investment. SQL Server Advanced Data Types explores each of the complex data types supplied within SQL Server. Common usage scenarios for each complex data type are discussed, followed by a detailed discussion on how to work with each data type. Each chapter demystifies the complex data and you learn how to use the data types most efficiently. The book offers a practical guide to working with complex data, using real-world examples to demonstrate how each data type can be leveraged. Performance considerations are also discussed, including the implementation of special indexes such as XML indexes and spatial indexes. What You´ll Learn Understand the implementation of basic data types and why using the correct type is so important Work with XML data through the XML data type Construct XML data from relational result sets Store and manipulate JSON data using the JSON data type Model and analyze spatial data for geographic information systems Define hierarchies and query them efficiently through the HierarchyID type Who This Book Is For SQL Server developers and application developers who need to store and access complex data structures
SQL Server Advanced Data Types:JSON, XML, and Beyond. 1st ed. Peter A. Carter
Learn to use C#´s powerful set of core libraries to automate tedious yet important tasks like performing vulnerability scans, malware analysis, and incident response. With some help from Mono, you can write your own practical security tools that will run on Mac, Linux, and even mobile devices. Following a crash course in C# and some of its advanced features, you´ll learn how to: -Write fuzzers that use the HTTP and XML libraries to scan for SQL and XSS injection -Generate shellcode in Metasploit to create cross-platform and cross-architecture payloads -Automate Nessus, OpenVAS, and sqlmap to scan for vulnerabilities and exploit SQL injections -Write a .NET decompiler for Mac and Linux -Parse and read offline registry hives to dump system information -Automate the security tools Arachni and Metasploit using their MSGPACK RPCs Streamline and simplify your work day with Gray Hat C# and C#´s extensive repertoire of powerful tools and libraries.
