This section summarizes the new features and functionality of Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.2) that are documented in this guide, providing links into the guide for more information.
TimesTen supports LOBs (large objects). This includes CLOBs (character LOBs), NCLOBs (national character LOBs), and BLOBs (binary LOBs).
For details of support in PL/SQL, refer to "Large objects (LOBs)".
Associative array binds
Associative arrays, formerly known as index-by tables or PL/SQL tables, are supported as
IN OUT bind parameters in TimesTen PL/SQL, such as from an OCI, Pro*C/C++, or JDBC application. This enables arrays of data to be passed efficiently between an application and the database.
Use of PL/SQL statements in dynamic SQL
TimesTen supports the use of PL/SQL anonymous blocks and procedure or function calls, in addition to SQL statements, in an
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE statement or
DBMS_SQL procedure or function call.
