Feuerstein releases PL/SQL Best Practice Details

Steve Feuerstein, the recognized top expert in Oracle PL/SQL best practices has just released details on his wildly-popular PL/SQL best practices seminar:

My latest iteration of critical best practices for PL/SQL, this class covers four main topics:
  1. Unit test your PL/SQL code. I offer "six simple steps to unit testing happiness", based on test-driven development principles. I then show how to implement these steps using Qute, the Quick Unit Test Engine ( It's been a lot of fun demonstrating Qute to developers on this tour; it never fails to impress with how easy it is to construct and run tests. Check it out!
  2. Optimize SQL in PL/SQL programs. From BULK COLLECT and FORALL to table APIs, it is absolutely critical that you both take advantage of key special features in PL/SQL to execute SQL, and also control how SQL is written in your applications.
  3. Manage errors effectively and consistently. We'd rather not have to worry about errors being raised in our programs, but they are going to happen so we have to code for them. This section reviews many of the nuances of error management in PL/SQL (have you heard of DBMS_ERRLOG, for example?) and then offers key best practices.
  4. Write readable, maintainable code. Well, sure, of course, don't we all? PL/SQL is inherently very readable, but there is an awful lot we can do to make our code even more transparent and self-documenting.

I encourage you to download this seminar, along with the demonstration zip file, and use it to help you improve the quality of code you write!

I will present twice at ODTUG on June 20 and 21 ("Six simple steps to unit testing happiness" and "SQL games we can play in PL/SQL"). Hope to see you there!
