Oracle Training Overview|
This Oracle 10g courseware training guide book will consider the grammar, syntax and benefits of using the PL/SQL language within an Oracle database environment. The Oracle PL/SQL language provides for programming logic features not contained within SQL. This course is taught using the following two volumes. Each volume may be presented as a standalone course. However, It is also frequently combined for this presentation as the "complete library" to consider more advanced features of the language as a single 5-day presentation.
Oracle Training Prerequisites

Beyond the scope of this course there are crucial performance tuning and advanced programming structures which are very important to understand and use. These are considered within the follow-up:
Oracle Training Course Objectives
- course ORACLE DATABASE 10G: ADVANCED PL/SQL PROGRAMMING & TUNING After some weeks or months of PL/SQL programming experience, it is strongly recommended that this additional course be considered. Various references are made to this course throughout this book so that one can see key areas where further detail is useful.
The primary objective of this course is to provide an introduction to the PL/SQL database programming language, based upon the latest features available with the Oracle10g Release 2 (R2) revision. Major subject areas to be explored are:
The objective of this course is to equip students to develop database server-side PL/SQL program units within an Oracle database. Major subject areas to be explored and secondary objectives are:
- Understand the environment and context in which PL/SQL operates.
- Consider the advantages and benefits of PL/SQL within a database environment.
- Declaring program variables and complex data types.
- Developing logic within PL/SQL program blocks.
- Fetching data from the database into program variables.
- Returning program output to users.
- Handling program exceptions.
- Using explicit and implicit database cursors.
- Using the advanced features of nested blocks and subprograms.
- How to take advantage of new features such as regular expression support and the handling of string literals within program code.
Oracle Training Certification
- Understanding application partitioning within a client/server or multi-tiered web-based architecture.
- Understanding the basic form and structure of program units stored within the database.
- Building and maintaining database stored program units.
- Encapsulating stored units within packages and taking advantage of accompanying advanced programming techniques such as cursor variables and cursor expressions.
- Handling intricate theoretical challenges, such as mutating tables.
- Building and maintaining DML-event and system-event database triggers.
- Discuss the storage and execution model for database programs and how one can write efficient programs to maximize performance.
- Using system-supplied packages to extend the power of your SQL statements and PL/SQL applications
This course considers subjects included within the Oracle Certification Examination 1Z0-147 entitled "Program With PL/SQL". This examination is part of the following Oracle certification tracks:
