This webinar has now finished, but feel free to click the button above to watch the recording.


In this session we will take a look at some of the lesser known PL/SQL packages that come with the Oracle database. Packages like DBMS_ASSERT, DBMS_CRYPTO and DBMS_PARALLEL_EXECUTE. We will take a look at some of the utility packages that could come in handy such as UTL_NLA and UTL_MATCH, look briefly at some of the helper functions from UTL_INADDR and UTL_URL. At the end, I will take a look at some of the good packages from the Oracle community that will help you get your work done faster and smarter.

A live Q&A session with Morten Egan will follow the presentation.
