Hello fellow ranchers,

I am interested in learning/studying about database design. I had studied databases in school about 5-6 years ago, but now need to use databases in a professional environment. Could you please suggest some good books to start? We are currently using MySQL with Java as the programming language.

Here is a good book for Java and MySql

MySQL and Java Developer's Guide
(Mark Matthews, Jim Cole, and Joseph D. Gradecki)

The value of an idea lies in the usage of it.
