5.12 About the Parameters p_generate_md5, p_clob001, p_blob001, and p_xmltype001

Use the p_generate_md5 flag to specify if the message digest of the data of the collection member should be computed. By default, this flag is set to NO. Use this parameter to check the MD5 of the collection member (that is, compare it with another member or see if a member has changed).

Use p_clob001 for collection member attributes which exceed 4,000 characters. Use p_blob001 for binary collection member attributes. Use p_xmltype001 to store well-formed XML.
