Well! you want to learn pl/sql environment with oracle database. The plus point is you have programming background. so, it's easy for you to learn pl/sql development. I also don't have idea about pl/sq1 environment but the already answer which is given below is very helpful for both, for you and me.

Tips for Oracle beginner
by: Anonymous

As you already have programming experience and know about databases then you're off to a good start. THe big difference between Oracle and dBase iv is that Oracle uses SQL as the query language and PL/SQL as a programming language, although you can use many other languages including Java, .Net and C with Oracle.

PL/SQL is SQL with Oracle's proprietary procedural extensions to make it more pwoerful. See our PL/SQL tutorials starting at http://www.asktheoracle.net/plsql-tutorial.html for a great introduction to the language.

As for books for beginners, this was covered in the answer to another question - see http://www.asktheoracle.net/oracle-books.html

The best thing for anybidy wishing to learn Oracle is to download and install the database on your pc. By joining the Oracle Technology Network (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/index.html) you will be able to download and install the Oracle software for free (subject to accepting the licensing conditions). The database software is avilable for Windows 64 bit as well as other operating systems.

Finally the following question and answer http://www.asktheoracle.net/beginners-courses-in-oracle.html also has some good tips for beginners.
