Overview Overview

This 3 day course gives an introduction to SQL Developer, SQL*Plus and to SQL, the Structured Query Language used to access a Relational Database and includes the new features of the latest version of ORACLE. The principles learnt may also be applied to databases as diverse as Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Access, Informix and DB2.

The course takes the format of a workshop, with a mix of lecture, working examples and practical exercises. Although the content may be customised, at least 2 days are needed to cover the core elements.

Full course notes are provided along with sample database files, example SQL files and free software tools for use in accessing an ORACLE database.
