Re: Drowning in Java


I signed up for basic java course at my local tech school as a pre-req for my Database Administrator Program.    Did they offer any rationale why it's necessary to learn programming before database administration?  Just curious.

Wondered about the need for programming with databases myself.  I have been told that you need to at least recognise and understand basic code because there are times when I will need to look at the code of a database.  Even more so if the database will be on the web.

Even more so if the database will be on the web.  Personally I think it's an excellent idea.  And not so much for that reason (actually I don't like that reason much at all) but it seems to me that I would choose a DBA who had some exposure to the application tier over one who hadn't every day of the week and twice on Sunday.  Having a semblance of what kinds of things are done with the data on an application level is a good skill to have I would think.   I have a dream.  I have a dream where one day application designers and programmers and dba's can all gather in one place and work together.   Sorry.  Good idea anyway.

Databases have stored procedures which are usually much more cryptic than anything you will find in beginning java courses. So personally, i rather learn programming in java, rather than plsql.
