PL/SQL (Procedural Language/Structured Query Language) is a programming language extension for SQL (Structured Query Language) to include procedural capabilities. The block structure of PL/SQL allows both imperative code, such as conditional statements and loops, and SQL queries to be contained within the same unit. This integration makes it easier to manage data manipulation logic at the database level, reducing network traffic and enhancing performance by operating directly with tables through stored procedures and functions. It was introduced by Oracle Corporation in the early 1990s and has since become the standard for writing stored procedures in Oracle databases.
