Beginning PL/SQL is a fast-paced and blissfully short introduction to Oracle's PL/SQL language. PL/SQL is the built-in language that every Oracle developer and database administrator simply must know. The book shows readers how to apply object-oriented PL/SQL to production applications. No other book on PL/SQL does this. It gives the reader practical advice on what works and what doesn't, and advises on the performance tradeoffs between doing work in SQL versus in PL/SQL. This book gets readers up-to-speed on the core of the language without wasting time on esoteric and seldom used syntax.
