This book is meant to provide a much needed tutorial on using Qt with various IDEs and database tools. Most of the books on the market do a great job showing you most of the GUI features of Qt, but are sadly lacking when it comes to explaining how to use Qt with databases. It is not uncommon to find at most one chapter in your favorite Qt book and to learn it is woefully inadequate for the task at hand. This book is meant to solve those problems. While Qt attempts to shield you from many underlying database differences, this book will prove that it is only partially successful and you still have to design your application around the limitations of your chosen database.
