Oracle Database Online Documentation 11g Release 1 (11.1)

Application Development

Application development for Oracle databases using a wide range of programming technologies.

The 2 Day + books walk through the process of creating a basic application in various programming languages. The supporting documentation covers the languages, programming interfaces, and development tools in detail.

Essentials

The 2 Day Developer's Guide introduces basic technologies and concepts used in Oracle application development, for all programming languages.

Each 2 Day + Developer's Guide describes using a different development platform and these basic technologies to implement the same sample application: a Web-based application for viewing and modifying employee data for an imaginary company named "AnyCo Corp".

This document provides the entry point point to the database for application developers. It explains the general concepts behind development with the Oracle Database, introduces basic features of SQL and PL/SQL, and provides references to in-depth information elsewhere in the Oracle Database library.

Supporting Documentation

The following documents treat advanced topics related to application development. In general, the 2 Day + books refer you to these when needed.

SQL and PL/SQL Languages

SQL and PL/SQL are fundamental to all Oracle application development. SQL is the language used to query and modify Oracle databases. PL/SQL is used to create and call triggers, stored procedures and functions, and PL/SQL packages. Other programming technologies depend upon SQL and PL/SQL to interact with the Oracle database server.

Contains a complete description of Oracle SQL, the language used to manage information in Oracle Database.
