17 Object Types

The Expression Filter feature is supplied with a set of predefined types and public synonyms for these types. Most of these types are used for configuring index parameters with the Expression Filter procedural APIs. The EXF$TABLE_ALIAS type is used to support expressions defined on one or more database tables. Table 17-1 describes the Expression Filter object types.

None of the values and names passed to the types defined in this chapter are case sensitive. To preserve the case, use double quotation marks around the values.

Tip:

See the "Expression Filter Types" chapter in Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference for all reference information concerning Expression Filter object types.
