Six Reasons Why You Will Get Addicted to SQLcl Scripting

Video origin: ODTUG - Oracle Developer Tools Users Group

SQLcl is ready to replace the reliable but somewhat outdated SQL*Plus as the new command line interface of the database. The most exciting new feature of SQLcl is scripting: Batch scripts can now be written in languages such as JavaScript, Python, or Perl.

This means a veritable cornucopia of options, many of which are not obvious at first sight.

After a brief introduction to SQLcl, we will show many real-world examples that demonstrate the new possibilities.

All examples are available for download to allow for further tests and exploration.

This presentation provides many in-depth live demos.
