Abstract

In Chapter 1, we cautioned against using PL/SQL when a SQL solution would be appropriate. Of course, if every possible functional requirement could be written in SQL, PL/SQL never would have been created by Oracle in the first place. When you have satisfied yourself that PL/SQL is required to meet a functional requirement, any access to the database will, of course, involve the use of cursors.
