I have put together an Apple iBook for our new SQL pattern matching feature. The book brings together the content from the recently published whitepaper, which is available via OTN, the recent series of three podcasts and a number of presentations covering pattern matching and the new MATCH_RECOGNIZE syntax. All the content you need to learn about this great new feature, bundled up in an Apple iBook that you can read anytime, anywhere on your iPad and iPad Mini. The best part is that you can watch the three recently published online podcasts on pattern matching (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3) without the need for an internet connection because they bundled inside the iBook!
The book has 5 chapters:
You can download this new iBook by clicking here. This is a very large file (200MB) so, depending on your network connection, it may take some time to download.
Please note that this iBook will only work with Apple iPad and Apple iPad Mini. It requires the latest version of the iBooks app which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, see here for more information. There are two ways to transfer this iBook on to your iPad:
1)use iTunes to manually sync the book to your iPad - a description of how you to do this is available: here or
2) copy the URL for the iBook into your browser on your Apple iPad and download the book directly into the iBook app.
If you need to ask: no this iBook cannot be read on Apple iPhone, Apple iPod touch, Android devices or Windows tablets. When OSX Mavericks is finally launched you will be able to read the iBook on your Apple Mac computer
