Part Number B10759-01
BODY statement to drop the body of an object type, varray, or nested table type. When you drop a type body, the object type specification still exists, and you can re-create the type body. Prior to re-creating the body, you can still use the object type, although you cannot call the member functions.
The object type body must be in your own schema or you must have the
TYPE system privilege.
Specify the schema containing the object type. If you omit
schema, then Oracle Database assumes the object type is in your own schema.
Specify the name of the object type body to be dropped.
You can drop a type body only if it has no type or table dependencies.
The following statement removes object type body
data_typ, which was created in "Object Type Examples":
DROP TYPE BODY data_typ;
