This class is applicable to Oracle8i, Oracle9i and Oracle Database 10g users.
This course introduces students to PL/SQL and helps them understand the benefits of this powerful programming language. In the class, students learn to create PL/SQL blocks of application code that can be shared by multiple forms, reports, and data management applications.
Students learn to create anonymous PL/SQL blocks, stored procedures, and functions. They learn about declaring variables and trapping exceptions. Students will also learn to develop stored procedures, functions, packages and database triggers. Students will learn to manage PL/SQL program units manage dependencies, manipulate large objects, and use some of the Oracle-supplied packages. Students use iSQL*Plus to develop these program units. Demonstrations and hands-on practice reinforce the fundamental concepts.
This course counts towards the Hands-on course requirement for the Oracle Database 10g Administrator Certification. Only instructor-led inclass or instructor-led online formats of this course will meet the Certification Hands-on Requirement. Self Study CD-Rom and Knowledge Center courses DO NOT meet the Hands-on Requirement.
