Oracle PL/SQL Programming has been an indispensable reference for both novice and experienced PL/SQL developers since its first edition. Now in its third edition, the book has been thoroughly revised and updated to include the latest Oracle releases--Oracle8i and Oracle9i--the "Internet databases" that communicate with other technologies, such as Java, to run powerful e-commerce applications. Oracle has made substantial changes to the PL/SQL language, and developers who want to take full advantage of its power will find the information they need in this book. Authored by renowned PL/SQL experts Steven Feuerstein and Bill Pribyl, the new edition of the book includes all PL/SQL language features up to and including Oracle 9i Release 2 (9.2). Regardless of the version you are using, from Oracle 7.3.4 to Oracle 9i, this book will answer your questions. In addition, Oracle PL/SQL Programming now contains much-requested new chapters on Oracle triggers, the internal architecture of PL/SQL in the Oracle database, and the use of PL/SQL with Java. The authors have carefully constructed each chapter of this new edition with three objectives: to help you take full advantage of PL/SQL, learn to use PL/SQL to solve your problems, and to write efficient, maintainable code.
