DDL (Data Definition Language) is a language used by a database management system (like Oracle) that allows users to define the database and specify data types, structures and constraints on the data.

Examples DDL statements are: CREATE TABLE, CREATE INDEX, ALTER, and DROP.

Note: DDL statements will implicitly COMMIT any outstanding transaction.
