Designing Efficient SQL
Topic: Developer's Toolkit
Owner: Jonathan Lewis

Subtopic: Tips and Techniques

When the requirements get complicated there is a straighforward strategy to writing efficient SQL that will reduce the amount of time you lose trying to get the database to do the right thing; but it requires knowledge of the data, the metadata, and the intent of the query.

In this presentation I start with the basic principle of efficient data access; then look at ways of analysing the data (in case you are not familiar with it already); finally I outline the principle of efficient data access, using a graphical approach to model a query, and finish with a small example
from a production system I was called to review some time ago.
