Oracle Database 12c R2 - Develop PL/SQL Program Units

This course is designed for developers with basic PL/SQL and SQL language skills. Students learn to develop, execute, and manage PL/SQL stored program units such as procedures, functions, packages, and database triggers. Students also learn to manage, PL/SQL subprograms and triggers.

Students are introduced to the utilization of some of the Oracle-supplied packages. Additionally students learn to use Dynamic SQL, understand design considerations when coding using PL/SQL, understand and influence the PL/SQL compiler, and manage dependencies. In this course, students learn and use Oracle SQL Developer as the main environment tool to develop these program units. SQL*Plus is introduced as optional tools. Demonstrations and hands-on practice reinforce the fundamental concepts.
