There are ten attribute types, as shown below. The type determines what values are acceptable and how the attribute is used.
If you include a form-type attribute in a notification message as a message attribute, the notification, when viewed from the Notification Details web page, displays an attached form icon that lets users drill down to the referenced form. See: Overview of Menus and Function Security, Oracle Applications Developer's Guide.
- PL/SQL document--a document representing data from the database as a character string, generated from a PL/SQL procedure.
- PL/SQL CLOB document--a document representing data from the database as a character large object (CLOB), generated from a PL/SQL procedure. The CLOB can contain plain text, HTML, an Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF) document, a Microsoft Rich Text Format (RTF) document, or, if your database version is Oracle9i Database or higher, binary data encoded to base64.
- PL/SQL BLOB document--a document representing data from the database as a binary large object (BLOB), generated from a PL/SQL procedure. The BLOB can contain an image or other types of application files that are stored as binary data.
Note: If you store an event message in an item attribute of type event, you can access the event data within that event message by creating an item attribute of type URL and setting the value of the URL attribute to reference the event data. See: SetItemAttribute, Oracle Workflow API Reference.
