Absolutely Typical – The whole story on Types and how they power PL/SQL Interoperability (UKOUG, 2011)4
This presentation will hopefully convince database developers that types in the Oracle Database are worth their salt – and more. With the recent improvements in 11gR2, the pieces are available to complete the puzzle of structured and modern programming with a touch of OO and more importantly to create a decoupled, reusable API that exposes services based on tables and views to clients that speak SQL, AQ, PL/SQL, Types, XML or RESTful, through SQL*Net, JDBC or HTTP.
This session shows through many demonstrations how types and collections are defined, how they are used between SQL and PL/SQL and how they can be converted to and from XML and JSON and how they drive Native WebServices as well as RESTful services based on the Embedded PL/SQL Gateway. Everyone doing PL/SQL programming will benefit immediately from this session. Every Database Developer should be aware of Types and Collections. For structured programming, for optimal SQL to PL/SQL integration and for interoperability to client application. This session introduces Types and Collections, their OO capabilities, the conversion to XML and JSON, their use in Native and RESTful WebServices and the pivotal role they can play in More >
Tag Cloud analysis in SQL and PL/SQL – Using Collections, Table Operator, Multiset and Collect operator
Another world shattering topic: analyzing tag clouds. This article describes a very simple first step for some analysis at database level of tags that have been associated with database records this analysis can be the foundation for presenting the tag cloud in the user interface that enables the user to quickly filter on records or list ‘similar’ records. We will use some valuable SQL and PL/SQL facilities: Collections, the Table operator and the Collect aggregator. (more…)
