Xenogenetics for PL/SQL: Infusing with Java Best Practices and Design Patterns – Alex Nuijten and Lucas Jellema
PL/SQL is a venerable programming language that is both vital and very much alive. This session will discuss how we further rejuvenate and enhance the way we create PL/SQL programs. We’ll tap into the world of .NET, Java, and other modern programming language to do some cherry picking: what are the very best practices, concepts, and design patterns and how can we apply them to PL/SQL? We’ll explain and demonstrate dependency injection, the observer pattern based on listeners, aspect-oriented programming (AOP), the decorator and template pattern, use of user-defined nested types, and collections.
