Oracle Database 11g: PL/SQL Fundamentals II - Develop Program Units Training

The objective of this course is to equip students to develop database server-side PL/SQL program units within an Oracle database.

What you will learn

Among the specific subjects discussed in this course are:

  • Understanding application partitioning within a client/server or multi-tiered web-based systems architecture.
  • Understanding the basic form and structure of program units stored within the database.
  • Building and maintaining database-resident program units.
  • Encapsulating program units within packages and taking advantage of accompanying advanced programming techniques such as cursor variables and cursor expressions.
  • Handling intricate theoretical challenges, such as mutating tables.
  • Building and maintaining DML-event and system-event database triggers, including advanced techniques using both simple triggers and compound triggers.
  • Discuss the storage and execution model for database programs and how one can write efficient programs to maximize performance.
  • Using system-supplied packages to extend the power of your SQL statements and PL/SQL applications.


Target audience for this course is all Oracle professionals. Among the specific groups for whom this course will be helpful are:

  • Application designers and developers
