XML

This chapter describes BS2000 specific topics of XML as installation, features and restrictions. For more information see Oracle8i Developer's Guide - XML and Oracle8i XML Reference.

Installation

XML is not part of your Oracle Server product set. Oracle recommends to download the latest version of XML from the Oracle Technical Network OTN (http://technet.oracle.com/software/tech/xml).

From the directory you downloaded the XML software (e.g. .../lib) you can load these *.jar files into the database by following call within SQL*Plus (and ensurance of necessary permission for user):

call sys.dbms_java.loadjava('-v -r -grant PUBLIC -synonym lib/<name>.jar');

For PL/SQL load the PL/SQL wrappers with SQL*PLUS by calling the following scripts:

File Comment

LOAD.SQL

Wrappers for XML-Parser and XSLT-Processor

XSUPKG.SQL

Wrappers for XML-SQL-Utility

For more information see Oracle8i Application Developer's Guide chapters ,,Using XML Parser for PL/SQL Examples" and ,,Installing XML-SQL Utility".
