Oracle PL/SQL Certification Training


Uplatz offers comprehensive training on Oracle PL-SQL . This is video-based online course (self-paced training). Oracle PL/SQL is an extension of SQL language, specifically speaking it is Procedural language extension to Structured Query Language, and is designed for seamless processing of SQL statements enhancing the security, portability, and robustness of the database. PL/SQL embraces and enhances the SQL statements within its syntax. PL/SQL program units are compiled by the Oracle Database server and stored inside the database. And at run-time, both PL/SQL and SQL run within the same server process, bringing optimal efficiency. PL/SQL automatically inherits the robustness, security, and portability of the Oracle Database. PL/SQL is a combination of SQL along with the procedural features of programming languages. It was developed by Oracle Corporation in the early 90’s to enhance the capabilities of SQL. PL/SQL is one of three key programming languages embedded in the Oracle Database, along with SQL itself and Java. PL/SQL is a powerful, yet straightforward database programming language. It is easy to both write and read, and comes packed with lots of out-of-the-box optimizations and security features. This Oracle PL/SQL training by Uplatz will give you great understanding on PL/SQL to work with Oracle database and other advanced RDBMS (Relational Database Management System) concepts. The PL/SQL online programming, features, and database tuning course explains important aspects of PL SQL language like block structure, data types, packages, triggers, exception handling, etc.
