Oracle PL/SQL Best Practices by Steven Feuerstein

In this compact book, Steven Feuerstein, widely recognized as one of the world's leading experts on the Oracle PL/SQL language, distills his many years of programming, teaching, and writing about PL/SQL into a set of best practices-recommendations for developing successful applications. Covering the latest Oracle release, Oracle Database 11gR2, Feuerstein has rewritten this new edition in the style of his bestselling Oracle PL/SQL Programming. The text is organized in a problem/solution format, and chronicles the programming exploits of developers at a mythical company called My Flimsy Excuse, Inc., as they write code, make mistakes, and learn from those mistakes-and each other.

This book offers practical answers to some of the hardest questions faced by PL/SQL developers, including:

  • What is the best way to write the SQL logic in my application code?
  • How should I write my packages so they can be leveraged by my entire team of developers?
  • How can I make sure that all my team's programs handle and record errors consistently?
Oracle PL/SQL Best Practices summarizes PL/SQL best practices in nine major categories: overall PL/SQL application development; programming standards; program testing, tracing, and debugging; variables and data structures; control logic; error handling; the use of SQL in PL/SQL; building procedures, functions, packages, and triggers; and overall program performance.

This book is a concise and entertaining guide that PL/SQL developers will turn to again and again as they seek out ways to write higher quality code and more successful applications.

"This book presents ideas that make the difference between a successful project and one that never gets off the ground. It goes beyond just listing a set of rules, and provides realistic scenarios that help the reader understand where the rules come from. This book should be required reading for any team of Oracle database professionals."

--Dwayne King, President, KRIDAN Consulting

Steven Feuerstein's great and I have no complaint about the content. However, if you are expecting, as I do, to use this ebook for reference on a nook, it's not adequate. The table of contents is not available in readable form. It appears in the menu as chapters but, the descriptions are truncated. There's also no readable index and search is not an adequate substitute. I'm really disappointed in ebooks in general as references. You'd think if anyone would get it right O'Reilly would.
