Oracle PL/SQL - Statement-level triggers

Introduction

Use statement-level triggers to check business rules that are not row dependent.

For example, there is a rule stating that nobody can delete or create new emp over a weekend.

This rule concerns the behavior of the whole EMPLOYEE table.

You could implement it as a statement-level trigger.

By default, triggers are statement-level so you don't need to specify the trigger type.

Demo

SQL>
SQL> drop table emp;

Table dropped.-- from   ww w .  j av  a2  s .c om

  2    empno    number(4,0),
  3    ename    varchar2(10),
  4    job      varchar2(9),
  5    mgr      number(4,0),
  6    hiredate date,
  7    sal      number(7,2),
