Oracle Database 12c: Program with PL/SQL (D80186GC10)

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).
  • Create stored procedures and functions.
  • 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 custom packages for applications.
  • Write Dynamic SQL code for applications.
 
Target Audience
  • Database Administrator
  • Developer
  • Implementer
  • Systems Administrator
 
Prerequisites
  • Suggested: Previous programming experience
  • Required: or Oracle Database: Introduction to SQL
 
Course Objectives
  • 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
 
Benefits to You
