CreateOraObject (OraDatabase) Method

Applies To

OraDatabase Object

Description

Creates a value instance or referenceable object in the cache and returns the associated OO4O object.

Usage

OraObject1 = OraDatabase.CreateOraObject(schema_name)
OraRef1 = OraDatabase.CreateOraObject(schema_name,table_name)
OraCollection1 = OraDatabase.CreateOraObject(schema_name)

Arguments

The arguments for the method are:

Arguments Description
OraObject1 A valid OraObject object representing a newly created value instance.
OraRef1 A valid OraRef object representing a newly created referenceable object.
OraCollection A valid OraCollection object representing a newly created collection instance.
schema_name A String specifying the schema name of the value instance to be created.
table_name A String specifying the table name of the referenceable object to be created.

Remarks

If the table_name argument is not specified, it creates a value instance in the client and returns an OraObject or OraCollection object. If the table_name argument is specified, it creates a referenceable object in the database and returns an associated OraRef object.

Examples

OraObject and OraRef object examples are provided. Before running the sample code, make sure that you have the necessary data types and tables in the database. See "Schema Objects Used in the OraObject and OraRef Examples".

Example: Creating an OraObject Object

The following example illustrates the use of the CreateOraObject method to insert a value instance. The row containing ADDRESS is inserted as a value instance in the database.

Dynaset Example

Dim OraSession as OraSession
Dim OraDatabase as OraDatabase
Dim OraDynaset as OraDynaset
Dim AddressNew as OraObject
 
'Create the OraSession Object.
Set OraSession = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.XOraSession")
 
'Create the OraDatabase Object by opening a connection to Oracle.
Set OraDatabase = OraSession.OpenDatabase("ExampleDb", scott/tiger", 0&)
 
'create a dynaset object from person_tab
set OraDynaset = OraDatabase.CreateDynaset("select * from person_tab", 0&)
 
' create a new Address object in OO4O 
set AddressNew = OraDatabase.CreateOraObject("ADDRESS")
 
'initialize the Address object attribute to new value
AddressNew.Street = "Oracle Parkway"
AddressNew.State = "CA"
 
'start the dynaset AddNew operation and 
'set the Address field to new address value
OraDynaset.Addnew
OraDynaset.Fields("ADDR").Value = AddressNew
OraDynaset.Update

OraParameter Example

Dim OraSession as OraSession
Dim OraDatabase as OraDatabase
Dim OraDynaset as OraDynaset
Dim AddressNew as OraObject
 
'Create the OraSession Object.
Set OraSession = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.XOraSession")
 
'Create the OraDatabase Object by opening a connection to Oracle.
Set OraDatabase = OraSession.OpenDatabase("ExampleDb", "scott/tiger", 0&)
 
'create an  OraParameter object represent Address object bind Variable
OraDatabase.Parameters.Add "ADDRESS", Null, ORAPARM_INPUT, _
             ORATYPE_OBJECT, "ADDRESS"
 
' create a new Address object in OO4O 
set AddressNew = OraDatabase.CreateOraObject("ADDRESS")
 
'initialize the Address object attribute to new value
AddressNew.Street = "Oracle Parkway"
AddressNew.State = "CA"
 
'set the Address to ADDRESS parameter
Oradatabase.Parameters("ADDRESS").Value = AddressNew
 
'execute the sql statement which updates Address in the person_tab
OraDatabase.ExecuteSQL ("insert into person_tab values ('Eric',30,:ADDRESS)")

Example: Creating an OraRef Object

The following example illustrates the use of the CreateOraObject method to insert referenceable objects.

In this example, a new PERSON is inserted as a referenceable object in the database.

Dim OraSession as OraSession
Dim OraDatabase as OraDatabase
Dim Person  as OraRef
 
'Create the OraSession Object.
Set OraSession = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.XOraSession")
 
'Create the OraDatabase Object by opening a connection to Oracle.
Set OraDatabase = OraSession.OpenDatabase("ExampleDb", "scott/tiger", 0&)
 
'CreteOraObject   creates a new referenceable 
'object in the PERSON_TAB object table and returns associated OraRef
set Person = OraDatabase.CreateOraObject("PERSON","PERSON_TAB")
 
'modify the attributes of Person
Person.Name = "Eric"
 
Person.Age = 35
'Update method inserts modified referenceable object in the PERSON_TAB.
Person.Update
