PL/SQL is the Oracle Procedural Language extension of SQL. PL/SQL is integrated within the Oracle database. A PL/SQL program can have both SQL statements and procedural statements. In the program, the SQL statements are used to access sets of data stored in a database, while the procedural statements are used to process individual piece of data and control the program flow, by applying, for example, the PL/SQL's if-then-else and looping structures. This book, Oracle PL/SQL Programming Fundamentals By Examples, is for PL/SQL beginners. If you have no prior or limited skill of PL/SQL, and you want to learn the Oracle PL/SQL programming language the practical way, then this book is perfect for you. When you finish reading the book and trying its examples, you would have equipped yourself with PL/SQL fundamental skills to start writing some PL/SQL programs for a real-world development project. Source codes listing of the examples are included in the Appendix of the book.
