Oracle 10g Unloading Columns Containing Final Object Types

6 LOCATION ('proj_obj_ext.dmp')
7 )
8 AS
9 SELECT ps.project_id,
10 DECODE (ps.address, NULL, 0, 1) address,
11 ps.address.street street,
12 ps.address.suite suite,
14 ps.address.state_or_provence state_or_provence,
15 ps.address.mail_code mail_code,
16 country,
14 ps.projet_percent_complete
15 FROM projects_sources ps;

Table created.

The type constructor function can now use the columns in the external table containing the attributes of the object type as arguments when loading data into a column of that type. Note that the address column in the external table will be used to determine whether to call the constructor function for the object or set the column to NULL.

  1. Now let's create a new internal table that looks exactly like the projects_sources table.

SQL> CREATE TABLE projects_sources_2 AS SELECT * FROM project_sources

SQL> INSERT INTO project-sources_2
2 SELECT project_id,
3 DECODE (address, 0, NULL,
4 address_t(street, suite,
city,state_or_provence, mail_code, country)),
5 percent_complete
6 FROM projects_obj_ext;

120 rows created.
