Oracle XML Object-Relational Storage

After the post on models for storing XML data in Oracle and examples of binary XML storage, here's a detailed look at the rigorous and performant structured XML storage or object-relational storage.

Object-relational storage of XML data is based on "shredding" the XML content into a set of SQL [...]

Storing XML Data in Oracle

Oracle provides an abstract SQL data type called XMLType for storing XML data in the database. You can create an XMLType table, or an XMLType column in a relational table, to persist XML data.

Different storage models are available in Oracle to best fit the nature of the XML data [...]

Oracle has built-in functions to convert relational data into XML format easily. These functions comes under the umbrella of SQL/XML, a specification that supports the mapping and manipulation of XML from SQL.

This post shows you how to generate XML from relational data using Oracle SQL/XML functions as building blocks.

You may know about Intra-block row chaining which may occur when the number of columns in a table are more than 255 columns.
