Class ObjectArrayMapping

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Cloneable, ContainerMapping, ArrayCollectionMapping

    public class ObjectArrayMapping
    extends AbstractCompositeCollectionMapping

    Purpose: In an object-relational data model, structures can contain "Arrays" or collections of other data-types. In Oracle 8i, a Varray is typically used to represent a collection of primitive data or aggregate structures. These arrays are stored with their parent structure in the same table.

    ArrayMapping is used to map a collection of primitive data

    ObjectArrayMapping is used to map a collection of Oracle data-type

    NOTE: Only Oracle8i supports Varray type.
