Oracle Training Audience
This Oracle 11g courseware training guide book will present some of the most advanced features available to database developers.
Oracle Training Course Objectives
Many of the new features are either newly available with the Oracle 11g release or have been substantially improved with that release. Among the specific subjects presented in this course are:
- Creating and using directory objects within the database.
- A comprehensive look at all index types available when building an application schema, including B-tree internals, function-based, compressed, reverse key, invisible, linguistic, bitmap and bitmap join indexes.
- A comprehensive look at all table types available when building an application schema, including heap-organized tables, index clusters, hash clusters, index-organized tables, external tables, temporary tables, read-only and compressed tables.
- Advanced SQL hierarchal data processing capabilities available from the CONNECT BY PRIOR and related language structures.
- Enhanced SQL and transactional capabilities, including asynchronous commits, DML error trapping and use of regular expressions.
- How to use the result cache to achieve dramatic performance improvement for frequently executed SQL queries and PL/SQL functions.
- Enhancements to the PL/SQL programming language and coding capabilities.
- New and advanced SQL language application development capabilities.
- Review the goals of change management, change assurance and how these are implemented with Real Application Testing technology available with the Oracle 11g database. An entire volume has been dedicated to Real Application Testing
- Learn how to perform the capture of a production database workload while not interfering with the applications or users involved.
- Learn how to replay the production workload on a test database configuration, providing a real-world test of how an actual application will function in an envisioned database configuration.
- Learn how to configure clients which will simulate the network interaction of real-world users in a test configuration.
- Perform a detailed analysis of application execution within proposed database configurations to assess whether the application performance will progress or regress as a result of the proposed change.
- Use the SQL Performance Analyzer tool to measure progression or regression of individual SQL statements under a proposed database configuration, providing a detailed level of change assurance before the change ever occurs.
The target audience for this course is senior application developers. Using these features one can rely upon less-frequently used database options to extend the capabilities and flexibility of business applications.
