PL/SQL (Procedural Language / Structured Query Language) is Oracle’s procedural extension to the database standard SQL coding language.

It creates Triggers, Functions, Procedures, Packages etc on the Oracle RDBMS – it includes elements such as conditions & loops, the declaration of variables & constants.  It can handle exceptions during runtime errors.
