Oracle Database: Program with PL/SQL

Course Code: 
Number of Days: 

This Oracle Database: Program with PL/SQL training starts with an introduction to PL/SQL and then explores the benefits of this powerful programming language. Through hands-on instruction from expert Oracle instructors, you'll learn to develop stored procedures, functions, packages and more.Learn To: Conditionally control code flow (loops, control structures). Use PL/SQL packages to group and contain related constructs. Create triggers to solve business challenges. Use some of the Oracle supplied PL/SQL packages to generate screen output and file output. Create anonymous PL/SQL blocks, functions and procedures. Declare PL/SQL Variables.Benefits to YouEnsure fast, reliable, secure and easy to manage performance. Optimize database workloads, lower IT costs and deliver a higher quality of service by enabling consolidation onto database clouds.Use Oracle SQL DeveloperYou’ll use Oracle SQL Developer to develop these program units. SQL*Plus and JDeveloper are introduced in this course as optional tools.Course BundleNote: This course is a combination of Oracle Database: PL/SQL Fundamentals and Oracle Database: Develop PL/SQL Program Units courses.

Required Skills: 

Use conditional compilation to customize the functionality in a PL/SQL application without removing any source code Design PL/SQL packages to group related constructs Create overloaded package subprograms for more flexibility Design PL/SQL anonymous blocks that execute efficiently Use the Oracle supplied PL/SQL packages to generate screen output, file output and mail output Write dynamic SQL for more coding flexibility Describe the features and syntax of PL/SQL Create and debug stored procedures and functions Use PL/SQL programming constructs and conditionally control code flow (loops, control structures, and explicit cursors) Manage dependencies between PL/SQL subprograms Handle runtime errors Create triggers to solve business challenges
