[edit] EclipseLink DBWS Service based on a PL/SQL Stored Function with complex PL/SQL arguments

The use-case for this example is the creation of a Web service that exposes a PL/SQL Stored Function that uses complex PL/SQL types as an IN or return argument.

The following stored function will be used for this example:

FUNCTION F1(OLDREC IN ARECORD, FOO IN VARCHAR2) RETURN ARECORD IS
  arec ARECORD; -- temp var
  BEGIN
    arec.T1 := ... some processing based upon OLDREC
    arec.T2 := ... AND FOO
    arec.T3 := ...
    RETURN arec;
  END F1;

Type ARECORD is defined in PL/SQL Package SOMEPACKAGE as follows:

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE SOMEPACKAGE AS
  TYPE TBL1 IS TABLE OF VARCHAR2(111) INDEX BY BINARY_INTEGER;
  TYPE TBL2 IS TABLE OF NUMBER INDEX BY BINARY_INTEGER;
  TYPE ARECORD IS RECORD (
    T1 TBL1,
    T2 TBL2,
    T3 BOOLEAN
  );
  FUNCTION F1(OLDREC IN ARECORD, FOO IN VARCHAR2) RETURN ARECORD;
END SOMEPACKAGE;

Because PL/SQL record and collection types cannot be transported over JDBC, an anonymous block of PL/SQL code will be generated that contains functions that convert to/from JDBC and PL/SQL types. In order for this to work, each PL/SQL record or collection type that will be an IN, IN OUT, OUT or RETURN argument (or any PL/SQL record/collection type nested within these) will need to have an equivalent JDBC type - the name of the type is expected to be in the form <package name>_<type name>. In this example, the following JDBC types are required:

CREATE OR REPLACE TYPE SOMEPACKAGE_TBL1 AS TABLE OF VARCHAR2(111)

CREATE OR REPLACE TYPE SOMEPACKAGE_TBL2 AS TABLE OF NUMBER

CREATE OR REPLACE TYPE SOMEPACKAGE_ARECORD AS OBJECT (
  T1 SOMEPACKAGE_TBL1,
  T2 SOMEPACKAGE_TBL2,
  T3 BOOLEAN
)

The DBWSBuilder utility requires a DBWS configuration file as input. Note that the return type will be SOMEPACKAGE_ARECORD; this is a complex type in the generated EclipseLink DBWS schema (below), which in this case is constructed based on the contents of the package SOMEPACKAGE.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<dbws-builder xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <properties>
    <property name="projectName">testPLSQLFunction</property>
    ... database properties
  </properties>
  <plsql-procedure
   name="plsqlfunction"
   catalogPattern="SOMEPACKAGE"
   procedurePattern="F1"
 />
</dbws-builder>
prompt > dbwsbuilder.cmd -builderFile dbws-builder.xml -stageDir output_directory -packageAs wls testPLSQLFunction.war

where

  • dbws-builder.xml is the DBWS builder XML file above
  • output_directory is the output directory for the generated files
  • -packageAs specifies the platform on which the web service will be deployed

The generated eclipselink-dbws-schema.xsd file follows:
