In addition, some courses are available as live, online classes for individuals. See a schedule of online courses.

Advanced Oracle 12c PL/SQL Training Objectives

All students will:

  • Invoke external procedures and integrate these into PL/SQL applications. These include external Java classes using the JDBC interface and external C programs contained within DLL libraries.
  • Use dynamic SQL to extend the functionality and flexibility of database programs, including the DBMS_SQL() system-supplied package for maximum flexibility.
  • Identify SQL injection attack vulnerabilities within an application and apply countermeasures to address security risks and protect against hacking.
  • Incorporate collections and other advanced types into application logic to increase efficiency and execution speed.
  • Work with LOBs, including piece-wise data manipulation and dynamic modification of SecureFiles storage options.
  • Expand database application functionality with advanced system-supplied database utility packages, integrate applications with external mail systems, database internals, and other facilities.
  • Tune with the DBMS_PROFILER() system-supplied package and debug with the DBMS_TRACE() system-supplied package.
  • Write efficient PL/SQL code and avoid common coding mistakes.
  • Enable native compilation and execution of all database-resident program units.
  • Control and manage PL/SQL compilation for high-efficiency execution.
  • Analyze PL/SQL code structure by means of the PL/Scope facility.
  • Analyze PL/SQL application performance and tune bottlenecks using the PL/SQL Hierarchical Profiler.
  • Implement fine-grained security mechanisms as part of an advanced security model using application contexts and the Oracle virtual private database (VPD).
  • Work with dynamic partitioning and DML parallelization using the system-supplied package DBMS_PARALLEL_EXECUTE().
  • Use the wrap utility to hide the source code of database-resident programs, even from the owner or authorized users of the programs.
