PL/SQL database programming

During the development and/or control of programs for database processing, application programmers, developers and DBAs need more than the basic relational possibilities of Oracle SQL.

Therefore the objectives of this course are:

  • to describe and exercise the procedural characteristics that are added by PL/SQL to SQL;
  • to know the advantages of using stored procedures, functions and triggers.

Schedule

No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
