Oracle 11 g PL SQL Developer

PL/SQL Developer Training

PL/SQL is a combination of SQL along with the procedural features of programming languages. It was developed by Oracle Corporation in the early 90's to enhance the capabilities of SQL.PL/SQL (Procedural Language/Structured Query Language) is Oracle Corporation's procedural language extension for SQL and the Oracle relational database. PL/SQL is available in Oracle Database
