||Oracle Concepts by Burleson
Extensions to the Oracle SQL
This tutorial introduces the architecture of
SQL as a vehicle for extracting data from a relational database
management system. The focus of this tutorial is the use of
Oracle built-in functions and how to create new SQL functionality by
designing custom built-in functions.
This tutorial will also explore the decode and
case statements and show how they are used for dynamic data
transformation inside an Oracle database.
The new Oracle aggregation and summarization
functions will be explained, showing how the rollup and cube operators
are used to summarize and aggregate reporting data inside Oracle.
This tutorial is a bit different than earlier
tutorials because you will be spending more time writing SQL and
reading relevant articles. This tutorial will give you the
important hands-on experience that you need to write complex SQL using
aggregations and SQL extensions.
Upon completion of this tutorial, you will be
* Introduce built-in functions for SQL
* Write custom built-in functions for SQL
* Use the decode operator for data
* Use the CASE statement inside SQL
* Use aggregation and rollup within SQL
* Learn the Oracle object-relational data
* Implement an abstract data type definition
