Subject: ANN: PLSXML Utils/Demos for Oracle


If you're working with XML and an Oracle Database, or are curious about trying, then you may be interested in checking out some sample PL/SQL-based XML utilities and demos we've posted today at:

These utilities are all written in PL/SQL and work in any Oracle7 or Oracle8 database.

You'll also find new postings for Oracle's XML Parser in Java and an annotated version of Oracle's XML98 Keynote Address with added slides explaining how the demos we did there worked.

Full source for the PL/SQL utilities and demos are included in the "PLSXML" suite below, downloadable from the site.

The "PLSXML" suite of PL/SQL-package-based utilities comprises:

along with a suite of XML/Oracle demos which I use to show them off:

  1. Three-tier Web Page Validation Using XML/Oracle
  2. DHTML Manipulation of Rich XML Query Results
  3. Browser-based Search Results in XML from the Database
  4. Query and Tree Visualization of Oracle Data
  5. Realtime" stock quotes in XML, using XSL Stylesheets
  6. Oracle Developer Form querying XML-based data from a URL

Demos 1-5 above leverage the latest XML/XSL features of IE 5.0 Beta2 leveraging XML/XSL delivered on-the-fly from the database.

These are PL/SQL packages which I have found useful in my own XML Evangelism inside and outside the company and I hope can help others learn about how much of a natural fit XML and Oracle are.

Have fun.

As the first component of the XML infrastructure, which will serve as the foundation of Oracle's announced XML support, the Oracle XML Parser for Java v1.0.0 (Beta) is now available for downloading and testing on the new Oracle Technology Network (OTN) XML site located at

Additionally, an XML Forum has been opened on OTN to provide a collaborative area for bug reporting, technical support, and discussing other Oracle/XML issues.

While you must register to gain access, there are no restrictions or fees.
