ROWID Descriptor → The ROWID datatype identifies a particular row in a database table. ROWID can be a select-list item … in a query, such as: SELECT ROWID, ename, empno FROM emp In this case, you can use the returned … ROWID in further DELETE statements. If you are performing a SELECT for UPDATE, the ROWID is implicitly
Rowid Scans → The rowid of a row specifies the datafile and data block containing the row and the location of the … row in that block. Locating a row by specifying its rowid is the fastest way to retrieve a single … row, because the exact location of the row in the database is specified. To access a table by rowid … the table based on its rowid.
ROWID Descriptor → The ROWID descriptor, OCIRowid, is used by applications that need to retrieve and use Oracle ROWIDs … . To work with a ROWID using OCI release 8 or later, an application can define a ROWID descriptor … for a rowid position in a SQL select-list, and retrieve a ROWID into the descriptor. This same
The ROWID Pseudocolumn → Each table in an Oracle database internally has a pseudocolumn named ROWID. This pseudocolumn is … , each row's address can be retrieved with a SQL query using the reserved word ROWID as a column name … , for example: SELECT ROWID, last_name FROM employees; You cannot set the value of the pseudocolumn … ROWID
Loading ROWID Columns → In both conventional path and direct path, you can specify a text value for a ROWID column. (This … is the same text you get when you perform a SELECT ROWID FROM table_name operation.) The character … string interpretation of the ROWID is converted into the ROWID type for a column in a table.
A.3.7 Universal ROWID → The support for universal ROWID datatype is presented. Index-organized tables use this concept. See "Universal ROWIDs".
10.5.1 Oracle ROWID Type → A ROWID is an identification tag unique for each row of an Oracle database table. The ROWID can be … supplied as a wrapper for type ROWID SQL data. ROWIDs provide functionality similar to the getCursorName … the java.sql.Statement interface. If you include the ROWID pseudo-column in a query, then you can … column
Universal Rowid (UROWID) → The universal rowid ( UROWID ) is a datatype that can store both the logical and the physical rowid … . Logical rowid values are primary key-based logical identifiers for the rows of index organized tables … set to 8.1 or higher. The following OCCI_SQLT types can be bound to universal rowid s: OCCI_SQLT_CHR
Addressing Rows Directly with the ROWID Datatype → Every row in an Oracle Database table is assigned a ROWID that corresponds to the physical address … of a row. If the row is too large to fit within a single data block, the ROWID identifies the … initial row piece. Although ROWID s are usually unique, different rows can have the same ROWID if they are … pseudocolumn
Overview of ROWID and UROWID Datatypes → Oracle uses a ROWID datatype to store the address ( rowid ) of every row in the database. Physical … universal rowid, or UROWID, supports both logical and physical rowids, as well as rowids of foreign tables
Speeding up Object Access Using the WITH ROWID Option → If the WITH ROWID option is specified for a REF column, Oracle maintains the rowid of the object … referenced in the REF. Then, Oracle can find the object referenced directly using the rowid contained … in the REF, without the need to fetch the rowid from the OID index. Therefore, you use the WITH … ROWID
E.1.5 Size of an Integer and ROWID → The size in bytes of integer datatypes and the binary external size of ROWID datatypes are system dependent. See "INTEGER " and "ROWID".
