But Can you let me know if I can use the nested cast function like: Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. All legitimate Oracle experts publish their Oracle qualifications. Since Oracle doesn’t have that in version 11 I defined an object and table of said object, cross join it and basically get the same thing. In addition it works only with nested table collections and not with varrays. There is some explicit mention of varrays supporting these operations, but in most of the documentation, varrays are not mentioned.
The reason for the additional inline view is the weird oracle bug the cause the function to hang and sometimes crash with ora and ora when using cast and multiset together with union. I end up getting an ORA Other than that, they behave in similar ways. The only problem is that this Multiset Union works only from Oracle Pages Home Presentations and papers. Rob van Wijk October 17, at This post will serve me and maybe some of you as a short, very simplistic template to copy from.

This greatly simplifies the task.
How to Write Multiset Conditions With Oracle VARRAY Types
An example of the use of CAST: Since I was using Oracle 11 I couldn’t use outer apply and found that cross join table cast multiset did basically the same thing I was after. Two simple tables with a master-detail relationship. I am studying your book, in particular today orale 20, “Using Object Relational Features”. The element types of the nested tables must be comparable.
I had a working query with reasonable performance. The only problem is that this Multiset Union works only from Oracle The following example compares two nested tables and returns a nested table of those elements found in the first nested table but not in the second nested table:.
Oracle knows two types of nested collections:. Search BC Oracle Sites. The following example compares two nested tables and returns a nested table of those elements found in both input nested tables:. ID T1 T2 4 T1 ‘dup’, ‘dup’, ‘dup’ T2 ‘dup’, ‘dup’, ‘dup’ How does it work?
I was converting SQL Server code where they’re using cross apply. CAST can convert a date or other unnamed operand or a nested table or other named collection into a type-compatible datatype or named performanxe. What performance gain or impact pegformance you observing?
This is the default. So I still consider it But using “force” still leaves an invalid internal type behind in my schema.
This is allows us to query a ofacle populated collection in SQL. But as you can see, when you use the function, an internal type has been persistently created. This handy predicate can help check if a specific value is contained in a nested collection.
Coexistence of CAST/MULTISET operators and member functions?
You may be on the start of a good question, I don’t know. Another option to send an array of multiple records is to use XML xmltype as the function parameter but this will be addressed in a separate post.
How to emulate this for varrays? Just like the previous MEMBER condition, this predicate can help check if specific values more than one are contained in a nested collection. Since Oracle doesn’t have that in version 11 I defined an object and table of said object, cross join it and basically get the same thing. Oracle knows two types of nested collections: It reads emphasis mine:. This process will throw an error if the resulting value is larger than the target type.
If your function is pre oracle 10 or you simply need a quick workaround all you need to do is wrap the query with an extra inline view and your function will perform just like the query in SQL Plus.
In addition it works only with nested table collections and not with varrays. Smoothing rough edges for productive programming. Post was not sent – orwcle your email addresses! The reason for the additional inline view is the weird oracle bug the cause the function to hang and sometimes crash with ora and ora when using cast multiseg multiset together with union.
Oracle has two types of nested collections: Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Title 2 years ago.
Just want to have idea to do proper use, when to use what. There is some explicit mention of varrays supporting these operations, but in most of the documentation, varrays are not mentioned.
This shows it won’t work statically but does dynamically — a workaround until you get to 9i: However, once I compiled the function and tried to cat it.
Nice workaound, only why dont the manuals publish these linitations like only dynamic method would work in 8. In SQL, everything is a partially ordered multiset by default.
