O'Reilly to Carry RevealNet Knowledge Bases
SEBASTOPOL, CA--Technical publisher O'Reilly & Associates, Inc. is adding to
its catalog three new knowledge base products from RevealNet, Inc., a
Virginia-based company specializing in solutions to master Oracle, DB2 and
Java. O'Reilly will be carrying RevealNet's knowledge bases for Oracle
administration, PL/SQL, and DB2. These popular products, built from best
practice knowledge, draw from the expertise and experience of top Oracle
authors such as Steven Feuerstein, Michael Ault, Peter Corrigan and Mark
Gurry, as well as DB2 experts Gabrielle Wiorkowski and Willie Favero. These
knowledge bases provide real-world, practical solutions, making them both
excellent online references and powerful learning tools.
RevealNet's Oracle Administration Knowledge Base is a comprehensive desktop
reference for Oracle DBAs. It covers almost 2,400 technical topics with the
ability to answer nearly 80 percent of the daily questions Oracle DBAs and
system administrators face. The knowledge base includes more than 175
clippable documented DBA scripts, as well as Instant Messages, a utility
that provides instant access to more than 11,000 Oracle error messages. The
product is also customizable: Users can attach their own information or
programs to any topic in the knowledge base.
This well-designed knowledge base organizes its topics around essential DBA
tasks-database object management, administration and tuning, and network
management--all presented in great depth. In the database object management
section, for example, each Oracle object type is covered in detail with usage
recommendations, syntax and numerous examples.
Earlier this year, O'Reilly and RevealNet announced a joint venture to
produce a Java knowledge base, drawing from the 20 books on Java published
by O'Reilly. This new knowledge base is expected to be released in the fall.
"These knowledge bases are the future medium for information delivery," says
Steve Jacoby, manager of corporate sales at O'Reilly. "We're very pleased to
add this cutting-edge technology to the many resources offered through
