PL/SQL is the procedure extension to Oracle SQL. It is used to access an Oracle
database from various environments (e.g. Forms, Reports to create triggers,
procedures, functions, etc.).
PL/SQL provides high-level language features such as block structure, conditional
statements, loop statements, variable types, structured data and customized error
Comp_name CHAR(20) := 'ACME SHOWERS';
SELECT company_id_seq.NEXTVAL INTO comp_id
INSERT INTO company (company_id, company_name)
VALUES (comp_id, comp_name);
Valid names in PL/SQL (e.g., variables, cursors, subprograms) are similar to SQL's (30
characters starting with alphabets, and numbers,#,$,_, quoted identifiers), many
next_tax_filing_date CONSTANT DATE := '15-APR-00';
company_name VARCHAR2(60) NOT NULL DEFAULT 'PCS R US';
bid number(5) not null :=11111;
--must be initialized at declaration
once declared not null
Implicit conversion -- may be confusing or erroneous (hard to debug)
sometimes PL/SQL can convert between characters and numbers,
characters and dates
