6.1 About Oracle R Enterprise Embedded R Execution

In Oracle R Enterprise, embedded R execution is the ability to store R scripts in the Oracle R Enterprise R script repository and to invoke such scripts. When invoked, a script executes in one or more R engines that run on the database server and that are dynamically started and managed by the database. Oracle R Enterprise provides both an R interface and a SQL interface for embedded R execution. From the same R script you can get structured data, an XML representation of R objects and images, and even PNG images through a BLOB column in a database table.
