Bulk SQL Operations

  • Connor McDonald


This chapter is about the bulk SQL operations available in PL/SQL. Bulk operations in PL/SQL enable you to manipulate and process many rows at once, rather than one row at a time. In this chapter, you’ll learn about bulk fetching and bulk binding. Bulk fetching refers to the ability to retrieve a set of rows from the database into PL/SQL structures with a single call, rather than making a call to the database for each row to be retrieved. Bulk binding lets you perform the converse: to take those sets of rows stored in PL/SQL structures and save them to the database in an efficient manner.
