Oracle Database Automation in the Real World

Oracle Tips by Burleson

With the release of Oracle7 into the relational database world, Oracle Corporation changed the direction of system development based on Oracle. Once forced to rely on Oracle*Forms to include procedural logic that enforced complex business rules, developers could now enforce these rules inside stored PL/SQL objects.

This was a paradigm shift for Oracle Corporation and for systems based on Oracle databases. Code stored within the Oracle7 database enforced system logic, reducing redundant code spread over multiple applications. This has led to an era of systems development in which the use of database triggers and other stored PL/SQL objects are planned in the design phase of systems development.

Despite the importance of this paradigm shift, the use of stored PL/SQL objects is only one half of database automation. The other half of database automation, predating even prepackaged software, involves the use of scripts to accomplish a variety of tasks, such as:

  Backup and restoration
  Creating/maintaining users
  Dynamic code generation
  Other miscellaneous purposes

This chapter provides numerous detailed examples of scripts that accomplish a variety of purposes, as well as numerous examples of stored PL/SQL objects. Familiarity with the actual tasks performed in the examples is useful, but not absolutely necessary.

This is an excerpt from the book "High Performance Oracle Database Automation" by Jonathan Ingram and Donald K. Burleson, Series Editor.
