EclipseLink JPA


Extended Stored Procedure and Function Support

This page has not yet been reviewed

EclipseLink provides support for calling Oracle PLSQL stored functions that return complex PLSQL data-types such as RECORD types and TABLE types. PLSQL types are not supported by Oracle JDBC, so these types must be translated to Oracle OBJECT types and VARRAY types. OBJECT types are returned as java.sql.Struct and VARRAY as java.sql.Array types in JDBC.

Use either of the following to call a stored function using PLSQL types:

Use either of the following to call a stored procedure:

Use the following for regular stored functions and procedure that do not return complex PLSQL types:

To call PLSQL stored functions or procedures, you must define mirror OBJECT/VARRAY types for the RECORD/TABLE types. Use the @Struct annotation to map OBJECT types to @Entity or @Embeddable classes. Normally, you can use @Embeddable, unless the OBJECT type defines an Id and can be stored in a table.

Use the following annotations to map nested OBJECT and VARRAY types:


Examples

Oracle Stored Function Returning PLSQL Record Type

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE EMP_PKG AS
TYPE EMP_REC IS RECORD (F_NAME VARCHAR2(30), L_NAME VARCHAR2(30), SALARY NUMBER(10,2));
FUNCTION GET_EMP RETURN EMP_REC;
END EMP_PKG;
CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY EMP_PKG AS
FUNCTION GET_EMP RETURN EMP_REC AS
  P_EMP EMP_REC;
  BEGIN P_EMP.F_NAME := 'Bob'; P_EMP.F_NAME := 'Smith'; P_EMP.SALARY := 30000;
  RETURN P_EMP;
END;
END EMP_PKG;

An OBJECT type mirror for the EMP_REC type must also be defined.

CREATE OR REPLACE TYPE EMP_TYPE AS OBJECT (F_NAME VARCHAR2(30), L_NAME VARCHAR2(30), SALARY NUMBER(10,2))

Defining a Java Class to Map to OBJECT type

@Embeddable
@Struct(name="EMP_TYPE", fields={"F_NAME", "L_NAME", "SALARY"})
public class Employee {
 @Column(name="F_NAME")
 private String firstName;
 @Column(name="L_NAME")
 private String lastName;
 @Column(name="SALARY")
 private BigDecimal salary;
 ...
}

Using JpaEntityManager createQuery() API to Execute a PLSQL Stored Function

import javax.persistence.Query;
import org.eclipse.persistence.platform.database.orcle.plsql.PLSQLStoredFunctionCall;
import org.eclipse.persistence.queries.ReadAllQuery;
 
DataReadQuery databaseQuery = new DataReadQuery();
PLSQLrecord record = new PLSQLrecord();
record.setTypeName("EMP_PKG.EMP_REC");
record.setCompatibleType("EMP_TYPE");
record.setJavaType(Employee.class);
record.addField("F_NAME", JDBCTypes.VARCHAR_TYPE, 30);
record.addField("L_NAME", JDBCTypes.VARCHAR_TYPE, 30);
record.addField("SALARY", JDBCTypes.NUMERIC_TYPE, 10, 2);
PLSQLStoredFunctionCall call = new PLSQLStoredFunctionCall(record);
call.setProcedureName("EMP_PKG.GET_EMP");
databaseQuery.setCall(call);
 
Query query = ((JpaEntityManager)entityManager.getDelegate()).createQuery(databaseQuery);
Employee result = (Employee)query.getSingleResult();

Using @NamedPLSQLStoredFunctionQuery to Define a Stored Function

@NamedPLSQLStoredFunctionQuery(name="getEmployee", functionName="EMP_PKG.GET_EMP",
    returnParameter=@PLSQLParameter(name="RESULT", databaseType="EMP_PKG.EMP_REC"))
@Embeddable
@Struct(name="EMP_TYPE", fields={"F_NAME", "L_NAME", "SALARY"})
@PLSQLRecord(name="EMP_PKG.EMP_REC", compatibleType="EMP_TYPE", javaType=Employee.class,
    fields={@PLSQLParameter(name="F_NAME"), @PLSQLParameter(name="L_NAME"), @PLSQLParameter(name="SALARY", databaseType="NUMERIC_TYPE")})
public class Employee {
 ...
}

Using a Named Query

Query query = entityManager.createNamedQuery("getEmployee");
Employee result = (Employee)query.getSingleResult();
