This diagram summarizes the Oracle XML DB API interface. It shows two APIs groups, OCI-based application APIs and server-based application APIs. OCI-based application APIs include both C XML Type and DOM and Java XML Type and DOM. Server-based application APIs include both Java XML Type and DOM and PL/SQL XML Type and DOM.
