Advantages of PL/SQL

Block Structures :

PL SQL consists of blocks of code, which can be nested within each other. Each block forms a unit of a task or a logical module. PL/SQL Blocks can be stored in the database and reused.

Procedural Language Capability :

It consists of procedural language constructs such as conditional statements (if else statements) and loops like (FOR loops).

Better Performance :

PL SQL engine processes multiple SQL statements simultaneously as a single block, thereby reducing network traffic.

Error Handling :

PL/SQL handles errors or exceptions effectively during the execution of a PL/SQL program. Once an exception is caught, specific actions can be taken depending upon the type of the exception or it can be displayed to the user with a message.
