Customer Reviews:

A Must for PL/SQL Developers

By Jeff Bernknopf - April 23, 2001

You can glean some of Steven Feuerstein's insights on PL/SQL development from his other books on PL/SQL. In fact, his books were how I learned the subject and the basis for the PL/SQL guidelines that I have used within various companies for years. Here for the first time, however, Steven focuses completely on the practices that a PL/SQL developers needs to know to develop real world PL/SQL apps that are well-written and easy-to-maintain.In the book, Steven covers the various topics that a developer needs to know. Starting from a high level view of the development process and coding styles/conventions, he drills down to the detailed technical issues of creating variables and data structures, control structures and exception handling. There is an excellent section on coding SQL statements in PL/SQL, which is one of the main reasons for writing PL/SQL to begin with. The book closes with an examination of functions, procedures and packages including several of Oracle's key... read more

A Handy Reference For Intermediate PL/SQL Programmers.

By Philip R. Heath "Gadgets, Music, & Books" - March 15, 2003

This is not a text for learning PL/SQL programming. Feuerstein's PL/SQL Programming text is much more suited for that. What you have in this book is information that the author has distilled from his other works. In a way it could be considered a summary as the title might suggest. This book is a must have for the leader of an organization that is beginning to use PL/SQL. You will find what you need for your programming standards here.In addition to good standards suggestions, the author also gives a lot of resources that are available to PL/SQL developers. One of the prime examples is utPLSQL, a unit testing tool for stored procedures and functions. The author gives numerous other web sites and tool suggestions throughout the book.Anyone looking to increase their PL/SQL productivity should pick up this book.

Excellent resource for new or experienced PL/SQL programmers

By Allen Taylor - April 1, 2002

I found this book to be an excellent (re-)introduction to good programming practices in PL/SQL. After reading the first few pages a little defensively ("I don't make those sorts of mistakes do I?") I soon realised that there was much to learn in this book as well as much that I had forgotten. This book has lead to an instant improvement in the quality of my PL/SQL code. I particularly like the Quick Reference card in the back of the book.
