PL/SQL, a programming language developed by Oracle Corporation and stands for Procedural Language extension of SQL. It is a combination of SQL and procedural features of the programming languages.

Developers can you this to declare constants and variables, procedures and functions, types and variables of those types, and triggers. Also, it helps you to handle exceptions and runtime errors. Arrays are supported involving the use of PL/SQL collections. From Oracle 8 onwards there are also associated features of object-oriented included, which expands further the scope of development. Developers can create PL/SQL units—procedures, functions, packages, types, and triggers —that are stored in the database for reuse by applications that use any of the Oracle Database programmatic interfaces.
