Oracle at Delphi by Jim McKeeth
TYPE: Regular Session
LEVEL: Advanced
PREREQUISITES: Familiarity with Oracle and Database Development using Delphi
ABSTRACT: Oracle is the Big Iron of databases. This session will mainly focus on how to take advantage of some of Oracle's more powerful and complex features. While the main focus will be Oracle with Delphi developers of other languages will be able to gain something from this session.

Oracle provides a very descriptive data dictionary, but it doesn't do a developer any good if they don't know their way around in it. After a short overview of the data dictionary we will look closely at what kind of data you can get and how to find it. Then we will look at some complex queries which provide some very useful information about your database.

Oracle has a very useful programming language that extends SQL. A quick overview will help developers start to take advantage of programming inside the database.
