This part of the book presents the basic PL/SQL programming elements and statement constructs. Chapters 4 through 6 describe conditional (IF and CASE) and sequential control statements (e.g., GOTO and NULL); loops and the CONTINUE statement introduced for loops in Oracle Database 11g; and exception handling in the PL/SQL language. When you complete this section of the book you will know how to construct blocks of code that correlate to the complex requirements in your applications.
