Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Maximizing your Learning

This book is designed to be a high-level introduction to PL/SQL.  There are many advanced capabilities of PL/SQL that exceed the scope of this book, but the good news is that they are all built on the programming foundations covered in this book.  To maximize your learning you should work the examples, and all the examples in this book were developed using TextPad, a text application like Windows’ notepad.  There is no need to use a development environment to learn PL/SQL and in teaching PL/SQL over the years, we have found that development environments such as JDeveloper or Toad tend to confuse the new PL/SQL developer.  Once you begin developing application, you will find these tools valuable assets.  The examples in this book were tested against Oracle9i and Oracle10g and the new free Oracle XE database.

The examples used in this book use a small training database called PUBS.  The following two sections discuss installing the PUBS database and using SQL*Plus.  If you started with the book Easy Oracle SQL, you already have the PUBS database installed and know how to use SQL*Plus.  You may want to jump to the section titled PL/SQL Basic Structures in this chapter.  Let’s take a closer look at the PUBS database.

The above book excerpt is from:
