Using DBMS_MGWMSG


Security Model

The EXECUTE privilege is granted to PUBLIC on all types defined in the DBMS_MGWMSG package as well as the canonical types. The DBMS_MGWMSG packages and object types are owned by SYS.

Note:

You must run the catmgw.sql script to load the Messaging Gateway packages and object types into the database. Refer to the Oracle Streams Advanced Queuing User's Guide for information on loading database objects and using DBMS_MGWMSG.

CONSTRUCT Method

This method constructs a new SYS.MGW_NAME_VALUE_T instance. All attributes are assigned a value of NULL.

Syntax

STATIC FUNCTION CONSTRUCT
RETURN SYS.MGW_NAME_VALUE_T;

CONSTRUCT_TYPE Methods

These methods construct a new SYS.MGW_NAME_VALUE_T instance initialized with the value of a specific type. Each method sets the name and type attributes and one of the <>_value attributes, as shown in the mappings in Table 77-6.

Syntax

STATIC FUNCTION CONSTRUCT_<> (
   name   IN VARCHAR2,
   value  IN datatype )
RETURN SYS.MGW_NAME_VALUE_T;

Usage Notes

The construct_boolean method sets the value to either DBMS_MGWMSG.BOOLEAN_TRUE or DBMS_MGWMSG.BOOLEAN_FALSE.

SYS.MGW_NAME_TYPE_ARRAY_T Type

This type specifies an array of name-value pairs. An object of SYS.MGW_NAME_VALUE_ARRAY_T type can have up to 1024 elements.

Syntax

TYPE SYS.MGW_NAME_VALUE_ARRAY_T 
  AS VARRAY (1024) OF SYS.MGW_NAME_VALUE_T;

SYS.MGW_TEXT_VALUE_T Type

This type specifies a TEXT value. It can store a large value as a CLOB or a smaller value (size <= 4000) as VARCHAR2. Only one of the < >_ value attributes should be set.

Syntax

TYPE SYS.MGW_TEXT_VALUE_T IS OBJECT(

Parameters

None

Return Values

Returns the attribute value.

GET_FIELD_COUNT Procedure

Gets the number of message fields.

Syntax

MEMBER PROCEDURE get_field_count
RETURN INTEGER;

Parameters

None

Return Values

Returns the number of fields, or zero (0) if there are none.

GET_FIELD Procedure

Retrieves field information for the field having a given field collection index. This method should only be called if the GET_FIELD_COUNT Procedure returns a nonzero value and idx must specify a valid collection index; that is, 1<=idx<=get_field_count().

Syntax

MEMBER PROCEDURE get_field ( 
    idx    IN    INTEGER ) 
RETURN SYS.MGW_TIBRV_FIELD_T; 

Parameters

Table 77-16 SYS.MGW_TIBRV_MSG_T GET_FIELD Procedure Parameters

Parameter Description

idx

Specifies the 1-based field collection index of the field to retrieve


Note:

A 1-based index begins at one (1) instead of zero (0).

Return Values

Returns the field information.

GET_FIELD_BY_NAME Procedure

Retrieves field information for the first field that has a given field name. The name comparison is case-sensitive.

Syntax

MEMBER PROCEDURE get_field_by_name (

RETURN SYS.MGW_TIBRV_FIELD_T;

Parameters

Table 77-17 SYS.MGW_TIBRV_MSG_T GET_FIELD_BY_NAME Procedure Parameters

Parameter Description

name

Specifies the field name to search for. This can be NULL to find the first field that does not have a field name.


Return Values

Returns the field information, or NULL if no match was found.

GET_FIELD_BY_ID Procedure

Retrieves field information for the first field that has a given field identifier.

A field can have either a unique identifier or no identifier. If the field identifier value is zero (0) or NULL, then the field is considered to have no identifier. Otherwise, the identifier is a nonzero value that is unique for all the fields of this message.

Syntax

MEMBER PROCEDURE get_field_by_id (
   id   IN  INTEGER )
RETURN SYS.MGW_TIBRV_FIELD_T;

Parameters

Table 77-18 SYS.MGW_TIBRV_MSG_T GET_FIELD_BY_ID Procedure Parameters

Parameter Description

id

Specifies the field identifier to search for. This can be zero (0) or NULL to find the first field that does not have an identifier.


Return Values

Returns the field information, or NULL if no match was found.

FIND_FIELD_NAME Procedure

Searches for a field with a given field name, starting from a given index of the field collection. It returns the index of that field. The name comparison is case-sensitive. This function is useful for finding all the fields that have the same name.

Syntax

MEMBER PROCEDURE find_field_name (
   name      IN  VARCHAR2,
   start_idx IN  INTEGER )
RETURN INTEGER;

Parameters

Table 77-19 SYS.MGW_TIBRV_MSG_T FIND_FIELD_NAME Procedure Parameters

Specifies the field name to search for. This can be NULL to search for a field that does not have a field name.

start_idx

Specifies the 1-based field collection index from which the search should start.


Return Values

Returns the field index (> 0) if a match was found, or zero (0) if no match was found.

FIND_FIELD_ID Procedure

Searches for a field with a given field identifier, starting from a given index of the field collection. It returns the index of that field.

Syntax

MEMBER PROCEDURE find_field_id (
     id        IN  INTEGER,
     start_idx IN INTEGER )
RETURN    INTEGER;

Parameters

Table 77-20 SYS.MGW_TIBRV_MSG_T FIND_FIELD_ID Procedure Parameters

Parameter Description

id

Specifies the field identifier to search for. This can be zero (0) or NULL to find a field that does not have an identifier.
