Chapter 16. PLVgen: Generating PL/SQL Programs

The PLVgen (PL/Vision GENerator) package provides a set of procedures you can use to generate your own PL/SQL code. With PLVgen you can:

  • Implement coding standards and best practices by incorporating those elements into the code generated by the package.

  • Improve developer productivity. You don't have to do as much typing; the code is generated for you—and it comes free of typos.

  • Take full advantage of PL/Vision programming components. When you generate code with PLVgen, it includes calls to PLVhlp, PLVtrc, and PLVexc package elements. PLVgen can make practical the widespread deployment of a library like PL/Vision.
