Part I Introduction to JSON Data and Oracle Database

Get started understanding JSON data and how you can use SQL and PL/SQL with JSON data stored in Oracle Database.

Schemaless development based on persisting application data in the form of JSON documents lets you quickly react to changing application requirements. You can change and redeploy your application without needing to change the storage schemas it uses.

SQL and relational databases provide flexible support for complex data analysis and reporting, as well as rock-solid data protection and access control. This is typically not the case for NoSQL databases, which have often been associated with schemaless development with JSON in the past.

Oracle Database provides all of the benefits of SQL and relational databases to JSON data, which you store and manipulate in the same ways and with the same confidence as any other type of database data.
