PL/SQL can also be used in developing web applications and supports object -oriented programming.
PL/SQL allows you to create procedures ,functions ,cursors and Triggers.
In this course we will setup a test environment from scratch by downloading and installing sample oracle database and TOAD.
Once we have our lab fully setup we will then start writing proper PL/SQL syntax.
What You Will Learn in this course:
- How to write PL/SQL syntax
- How to write procedures
- How to create functions
- How to create cursors
- How to create Triggers
- How to insert PL/SQL comments
The SQL in the PL/SQL is similar to how the standard SQL is used. The way you write a standard Create, Read (Select),update and delete is similar.
Oracle's procedural language is used to add extra functionalities to the SQL language.
At the end of this course you should have the basic skills to write PL/SQL syntax and create procedures,triggers,cursors and functions.You
will also know how to use the delimiters.
Welcome to the course.
