17.4 Using Collections

Collections enable you to temporarily capture one or more nonscalar values. You can use collections to store rows and columns currently in session state so they can be accessed, manipulated, or processed during a user's specific session. You can think of a collection as a bucket in which you temporarily store and name rows of information.

The following are examples of when you might use collections:

You insert, update, and delete collection information using the PL/SQL API APEX_COLLECTION. For complete descriptions of all Application Programming Interface packages for Oracle Application Express, see Oracle Application Express API Reference.
