In this article, I will talk about Oracle's Quick SQL Platform.
SQL is very easy to write. It is one of the easiest languages to learn and code because it is the closest to human language. With the Quick SQL Platform, Oracle has taken a step forward, inheriting the inherent nature of the SQL language, to use a software that generates SQL with a much simpler notation. I considered it to be very useful in my first test and I think it can be quite useful in other tests. One of the most powerful features of this platform is that we can produce test data in the frame of the rules we set.
You only need an Oracle account to use this platform. If you do not have an Oracle account, you can get an Oracle account by following this link.
Let's give an example to provide a quick idea of how we can get an output by giving an input to the Oracle Quick SQL Platform.
As I said at the beginning of the article, it is a notation that Oracle has identified, and you can access the details of using this notation through the menus in the platform. (I will share the introduction link to the Oracle Quick SQL Platform at the end of the article.)
