Oracle9i PL/SQL: A Developer's Guide is intended for both intermediate-level Oracle developers who are designing or coding applications in SQL and PL/SQL and for advanced PL/SQL programmers who need to learn new PL/SQL 9ifeatures. In addition to providing developers with detailed coverage of the PL/SQL 9i language itself, author Bulusu Lakshman covers the techniques of using PL/SQL 9i for server-side applications and provides the methodology for implementing robust applications.
The popularity of object-oriented concepts, design, and programming has stimulated the need for a database system that enables a straightforward process to store and retrieve object instances. Exploring object-oriented features and techniques in Oracle DBMS, this book describes the fundamental aspects of data modeling and implementation in Oracle.
Many of the current PL/SQL titles are overkill for those who need to use PL/SQL but have no intention of becoming professional DBAs. This book teaches you what you really need to know, without getting bogged down by what you don't. In Oracle PL/SQL Crash Course, author expert Ben Forta distills the essentials of PL/SQL into a set of self-paced lessons in which you complete practice exercises designed to illustrate the most important aspects of setting up, using, and administering PL/SQL.
This book is written with the objective of providing the students or professionals with the knowledge of how to develop and manipulate a relational database through the medium of the Internet.

This textbook goes beyond mere refinements of database or Web application concepts.
Steven Feuerstein's first book, Oracle PL/SQL Programming, has become the classic reference to PL/SQL, Oracle's procedural extension to its SQL language. His new book looks thoroughly at one especially advanced and powerful part of the PL/SQL language -- the package. The use of packages can dramatically improve your programming productivity and code quality, while preparing you for object-oriented development in Oracle technology. In this book, Feuerstein explains how to construct packages -- and how to build them the right way.
