|Length: 5 days|
|Audience: Programmers and Database Administrators responsible for the development or maintenance of application systems which access an Oracle database.|
|Prerequisites: Oracle 11g SQL Fundamentals and knowledge of a procedural language (e.g., C).|
The course provides a comprehensive introduction to PL/SQL, Oracle's procedural
language extension to SQL. PL/SQL is used to write stored procedures, packages, and database
triggers. PL/SQL will be of particular interest to individuals developing applications in a client server or multi-tier environment.
The course also provides attendees with the background to develop stored PL/SQL programs including functions, procedures, packages, and triggers. Commonly used predefined packages provided with the Oracle11g DBMS are examined. Discussions include how these packages could be used as part of in-house applications. Additional PL/SQL features such as native dynamic SQL support and autonomous transactions are also presented.
Workshops provide students with the opportunity to use predefined packages and evaluate their potential role in an application as well as to write their own stored PL/SQL objects.
