In today’s video we give a demonstration of Simple Oracle Document Access (SODA) for PL/SQL. SODA is a feature of Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS), but this PL/SQL interface for SODA was introduced in Oracle Database 18c.
The star of today’s video is the son of Dan Iverson. Dan, not his son, is an Oracle ACE focusing on PeopleSoft and Oracle Cloud Architect. He’s also in Army National Guard, which means he’s already prepared for the zombie apocalypse! 🙂
In today’s video we’ll give a quick demonstration of deploying an APEX application using the SQLcl implementation of Liquibase.
I Know what you’re thinking. Didn’t I do this video two weeks ago? The answer is yes and no. This video is very similar to the Liquibase video I did two weeks ago, but that was using the Liquibase Pro client. This video uses the SQLcl implementation of Liquibase, and more specifically the runOracleScript tag to achieve the same thing.
The video is based on this article, which has an example of deploying an APEX workspace and an APEX application.
The stars of today’s video are the offspring of Jeff Smith. I had been annoying Jeff on Twitter DMs while he was meant to be on holiday, so I agreed to pay him back by turning his children into international megastars. I take no responsibility for how they handle the fame! 😉
The star of today’s video is Jorge Rimblas, making a welcome return to the channel, along with some serious reverb. 🙂 Last time we saw Jorge was in a boxing gym, and his daughters have also taken the spotlight for one video.
Today’s video is a demonstration of returning REF CURSORs from PL/SQL using functions, procedures and implicit statement results.
I was motivated to do this after a conversation with my boss. He’s from a .NET and SQL Server background, and was a bit miffed about not being able to use a SELECT to pass out variable values from a procedure, like you can in T-SQL. So I piped up and said you can using Implicit Statement Results and another myth was busted. I guess most PL/SQL developers don’t use this, and I don’t either, but you should know it exists so you can be a smart arse when situations like this come up. 🙂
You might also find these useful. The secure external password store is a good way to make connections with SQLcl. If you support a variety of database engines, you may prefer to use the regular Liquibase client.
