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.


  • Design PL/SQL anonymous blocks that execute efficiently
  • Write PL/SQL code to interface with the database
  • Describe the features and syntax of PL/SQL
  • Use PL/SQL programming constructs and conditionally control code flow (loops, control structures, and explicit cursors)
  • Handle runtime errors
  • Create simple procedures and functions
  • Design PL/SQL packages to group and contain related constructs
  • Categorize and Use the Oracle supplied PL/SQL packages to generate screen output, file output, web output, and mail output
  • Schedule PL/SQL jobs to run independently
  • Write dynamic SQL for more coding flexibility
  • Create triggers to solve business challenges
