Benefits of PL/SQL in Oracle

We’ll go over some topics with you to help you understand the benefits of PL/SQL.

  1. Support for SQL
  2. Performance
  3. Productivity
  4. Portability
  5. High Security
  6. Support for object-oriented programming language.

Let’s dig into the above points in detail to understand better.

Support for SQL

As we all know PL/SQL is an extension of procedural language to SQL and PL/SQL fully supports all SQL features and data types.


PL/SQL lessen community visitors among database and application. For higher information we can take a easy example. Just assume you want to replace a few column withinside the desk and simply after insert a few rows. By the usage of SQL, You ought to do jobs or you need to write SQL statements however in case you are enforcing equal issue withinside the PL/SQL then write easy block or subprograms after which PL/SQL ship complete block of assertion executes in a unmarried time. It way we can’t ship request each time.


PL/SQL allows you to write complex code to manipulate data. Just like another scripting language. If you have PL/SQL knowledge with Oracle engine, you can transfer your knowledge to other Oracle tools.

Just to take an example, you can create a block named PL/SQL in the database, then you can use it in different Oracle engines like Oracle APEX, Oracle Forms


PL/SQL Code Runs easily on any operating system that supports Oracle databases. Users do not need to change anything on their operating system.

High Security

When you use PL/SQL with your application. You can protect the code from tampering and it allows you to hide the details of the code and you can restrict who can access it. Just understand with example: for example, you have given a procedure to the user to update some data in a table. They will modify the data in the table and see the changes, but not the code.

Support for object-oriented programming language

In PL/SQL, object-oriented programming is based on object types. PL/SQL allows you to design real-world objects, discrete interfaces, and implementation details, and store persistent object-oriented data in the database.

By using PL/SQL you can follow the object-oriented programming language rule of being Modular, Maintainable, and Reusable.
