Why are books like "Advanced Oracle Utilities: The Definitive Reference" imperative for today's DBA's and senior developers? The answer: Oracle has become so robust and complex; where many new features are implemented not as SQL commands, but as either PL/SQL packages and/or stand alone utilities. Thus to best leverage all that Oracle has to offer, one must know all those non-SQL command interfaces for those new features. This presentation will demonstrate a few critical examples of such features and their usage. The goal will be to inspire attendees to realize that SQL alone is no longer sufficient - that there are many other commands and/or PL/SQL packages to master.

Objective 1: What are examples of features exposed as PL/SQL API rather than as SQL

Objective 2: How to code using some of the complex feature API's for success
