How do I pass a Hashtable to a PL/SQL procedure in Oracle 8i ? I know you gotta use STRUCT etc. But a sample code will help.
Cheers, Amit.

Excuse me if I am stating the obvious here, but have you looked at the sample code available from this Web site:
And have you searched this Web site:
Hope this helps.
Good Luck,

Thanks for you suggestions, Avi.
I visited both these sites and have even downloaded few samples. But the samples do not demonstrate the way to pass a hashtable to PL/SQL stored procedure. The problem is Hashtable is not a compatible type in Oracle. They have to be converted into objects and sent as an object array. I have 13 items to send in the hashtable and converting every item into object and packing them into an array clutters the code. I wanted to see if there was a better mechanism to send a (key,value) pair as a parameter to a PL/SQL procedure from my Java program.
Thanks for your efforts and time.
cheers, Amit.
I agree. Here's the link:
