A language as mature and rich as PL/SQL is packed full of features that you may not use on a day-to-day basis, but that may make the crucial difference between success and failure. This part of the book focuses on those features. Chapter 23 explores the security-related challenges we face as we build PL/SQL programs. Chapter 24 contains an exploration of the PL/SQL architecture, including PL/SQL’s use of memory. Chapter 25 provides guidance for PL/SQL developers who need to address issues of globalization and localization. Chapter 26 offers an introduction to the object-oriented features of Oracle.
Two additional chapters, describing invoking Java and C code from PL/SQL applications, are available in full on the book’s web site.
