This chapter describes the types used with rules, rule sets, and evaluation contexts.
This chapter contains the following topic:
Rule types are used with the following Oracle-supplied PL/SQL packages:
You can use the
DBMS_RULE_ADM package to create and administer rules, rule sets, and evaluation contexts, and you can use the
DBMS_RULE package to evaluate rules. When you use Streams, rules determine which changes are captured by a capture process, which events are propagated by a propagation job, and which events are dequeued and applied by an apply process. Also, the
DBMS_STREAMS_ADM package creates system-generated rules for use during capture, propagation, and apply.
