Learn how to build your own Python app backed by Oracle Database, utilizing Oracle XML DB, Python scripts, and PL/SQL stored procedures.

[From OTN]

While Python is quickly gaining popularity among developers, Oracle Database has been No. 1 among enterprise-level databases for a long time. Coupling these two in an efficient way is an interesting topic for discussion, while this actually can be a real challenge, because both have a lot to offer.

Be warned, though; this article is not an overview of the most outstanding Python and Oracle Database features, providing a set of detached examples. Instead, with the help of a single sample, it tries to give you a taste of how these two technologies can be used together in a complementary way. In particular, the article walks you through the creation of an Oracle-backed Python application that implements the business logic in both Python and inside the database, utilizing stored PL/SQL procedures whose invocations are orchestrated from within a Python script.
