PHP & Oracle

PHP & Oracle are a powerful tools to build dynamic websites. I wrote these articles while making my graduation project (2009).

I didn’t work with neither PHP nor oracle since then, so I might not be able to answer the questions but still I believe it is a good idea to keep these posts published 😉

Connecting PHP and oracle together was the most challenging part:

Oracle database

Data Control Language (DCL)

It’s a computer language and a subset of SQL, used to control access to data in a database. due to the nature of at which this standard operates it is possible for there to be problems within the sub system of the programming.

  1. GRANT: gives user rights and privileges on database objects or schema.
  2. REVOKE: removes or restricts user rights or privileges on database objects.
  3. COMMIT: make durable all changes done to the data.
  4. ROLLBACK : restore data to its state prior to user changes
  5. SAVEPOINT: set a point to which a ROLLBACK is possible.
  6. SET TRANSACTION: Modify transaction properties.


Structured Query Language (SQL)

SQL is a standard interactive and programming language for querying and modifying data and managing databases , I’m interested in studying it to use it with oracle forms and after learning new stuff i blog it here to help myself finding specific topic later on and to help anybody want to learn it or just looking for a certain topic.

The Oracle-SQL blogs “till now” are:
