About PL/SQL | Database Management System

About PL/SQL : Procedural Language/SQL (PL/SQL) is Oracle Corporation’s procedural language extension to SOL, the standard data access language for relational databases. PL/SOL offers modern software engineering features such as data encapsulation, exception handling, information hiding, object orientation, and brings state-of-the-art programming to the Oracle Server and tool set.

PL/SQL incorporates many of the advanced features of programming languages that were designed during the 1970s and 1980s. It allows the data manipulation and query statements of SQL to be included in block-structured and procedural units of code, making PL/SOLa powerful transaction processing language. With PL/SOL, you can use SOL statements to finesse Oracle data, and PL/SOL control statements to process the data.
