[ACCEPTED]-how to create a stored procedure in oracle which accepts array of parameters-stored-procedures
Yes. Oracle calls them collections and 2 there's a variety of collections you can 1 use.
A simple array example using a VARRAY.
DECLARE TYPE Str_Array IS VARRAY(4) OF VARCHAR2(50); v_array Str_Array; PROCEDURE PROCESS_ARRAY(v_str_array Str_Array) AS BEGIN FOR i IN v_str_array.first .. v_str_array.last LOOP DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('Hello '||v_str_array(i)); END LOOP; END; BEGIN v_array := Str_Array('John','Paul','Ringo','George'); PROCESS_ARRAY(v_array); -- can also pass unbound Str_Array PROCESS_ARRAY(Str_Array('John','Paul','Ringo','George')); END;
If I'm not wrong, there's a native type 4 called TABLE that basically is an array. But 3 last time I used it was 2001 so maybe there 2 are most powerful types nowadays.
