Key Features

* Learn how to produce XML output using standard SQL queries

* See how to store validated XML in an Oracle database

* Learn fast methods available to search XML data in a broad or granular fashion

* Learn to parse XML into standard row and column data for loading into an Oracle table


Oracle XML is a two day course providing a clear understanding of quick and easy methods to generate and parse XML for use with Oracle. The tools to accomplish this are built into Oracle versions 9i and higher using supplied system packages.

Designed for Oracle developers and DBAs alike, the course shows how to quickly use standard queries to generate XML that can be used for basic webservices and data migration. Parsing using Oracle procedures will also be taught, allowing developers to bring XML data directly into Oracle without third party resources. In addition, students will learn how to query XML objects using Oracle Text, which allows text searches of XML that can be drilled down using XPath or attribute searches.

Easily reproducible exercises will be utilized to show students the many features of XML within Oracle that they can put to use immediately for data distribution and loading.
