The fourth edition of this popular pocket guide provides quick-reference information that will help you use Oracle's PL/SQL language, including the newest Oracle Database 11g features. It's a companion to Steven Feuerstein and Bill Pribyl's bestselling Oracle PL/SQL Programming. This concise guide boils down the most vital PL/SQL information into an accessible summary of: fundamental language elements (e.g., block structure, datatypes, declarations); statements for program control, cursor management, and exception handling; records, procedures, functions, triggers, and packages; calling PL/SQL functions in SQL; and, compilation options, object-oriented features, collections, and Java integration.The new edition describes such Oracle Database 11g elements as PL/SQL's function result cache, compound triggers, the Continue statement, the Simple_Integer datatype, and improvements to native compilation, regular expressions, and compiler optimization (including intra-unit inlining). In addition, this book w includes substantial new sections on Oracle's built-in functions and packages. When you need answers quickly, the Oracle PL/SQL Language Pocket Reference will save you hours of frustration.
