ROracle (version 1.3-1.1)

dbSendQuery-methods: Execute a Statement on a Given Database Connection

Description

These methods are straight-forward implementations of the corresponding generic functions except for the execute method, which is an ROracle specific DBI extension.

Usage

# S4 method for OraConnection,character
dbSendQuery(conn, statement, data = NULL,
          prefetch = FALSE, bulk_read = 1000L, bulk_write = 1000L, ...)
# S4 method for OraConnection,character
dbGetQuery(conn, statement, data = NULL,
          prefetch = FALSE, bulk_read = 1000L, bulk_write = 1000L, ...)
# S4 method for OraConnection,character
oracleProc(conn, statement, data = NULL, 
          prefetch = FALSE, bulk_read = 1000L, bulk_write = 1000L, ...)
# S4 method for OraResult
dbClearResult(res, ...)
# S4 method for OraConnection
dbGetException(conn, ...)

execute(res, ...) # S4 method for OraResult execute(res, data = NULL, ...)

Arguments

conn

An OraConnection object.

statement

A character vector of length 1 with the SQL statement.

res

An OraResult object.

data

A data.frame specifying bind data

prefetch

A logical value that specifies whether ROracle uses prefetch buffers or an array fetch to retrieve data from the server. If TRUE, then ROracle uses OCI prefetch buffers to retrieve additional data from the server thus saving the memory required in RODBI/ROOCI by allocating a single row buffer to fetch the data from OCI. Using prefetch results in a fetch call for every row. If FALSE (the default), then ROracle uses an array fetch to retrieve the data.

bulk_read

An integer value indicating the number of rows to fetch at a time. The default value is 1000L. When the prefetch option is selected, memory is allocated for prefetch buffers and OCI fetches the specified number of rows at a time. When prefetch is not used, which is the default, memory is allocated in RODBI/ROOCI define buffers. Setting this to a large value results in more memory being allocated based on the number of columns in the select list and the types of columns. For a column of type character, define buffers are allocated using the maximum width times the NLS maximum width. An application should adjust this value based on the query result. A larger value benefits queries that return a large result. The application can tune this value as needed.

bulk_write

An integer value indicating the number of rows to write at a time. The default value is 1000L. When a bulk_write value is specified, memory is allocated for buffers and OCI writes that many rows at a time. If the bulk_write argument is not used, then the default value is used to allocate memory for the bind buffers. Setting bulk_write to a large value results in more memory being allocated based on the number of columns in the insert list and the types of columns.

Currently unused.

Value

dbSendQuery

An OraResult object whose class extends DBIResult. This object is used to fetch data from a database, using the function fetch.

Side Effects

dbGetQuery

Query statement is executed and data is fetched from database.

dbSendQuery

Query statement is executed, but data needs to be fetched through calls to fetch.

oracleProc

PL/SQL stored procedure or function query statement is executed and result is returned.

dbClearResult

Resources acquired by the result set are freed.

dbGetException

Error information is retrieved and then cleaned from the driver.

execute

Query statement is executed.

Details

dbGetQuery

This function executes a query statement and fetches the result data from the database. It should not be used for calling PL/SQL queries.

dbSendQuery

This function executes a query statement and returns a result set to the application. The application can then perform operations on the result set. It should not be used for calling PL/SQL queries.

oracleProc

This function executes a PL/SQL stored procedure or function query statement and returns the result.

dbClearResult

This function frees resources used by result set.

dbGetException

This function retrieves error information.

execute

This function executes the specified query statement.

# NOT RUN {
    drv <- dbDriver("Oracle")
    con <- dbConnect(drv, "scott", "tiger")
    res <- dbSendQuery(con, "select * from emp where deptno = :1",
                       data = data.frame(deptno = 10))
    data <- fetch(res, n = -1)
    res2 <- dbSendQuery(con, "select * from emp where deptno = :1",
                        data1 <- data.frame(deptno = 10), prefetch=TRUE,
                        bulk_read=2L)
    data1 <- fetch(res2, n = -1)
    data1

    res3 <- dbSendQuery(con, "select * from emp where deptno = :1",
                        data2 <- data.frame(deptno = 10), bulk_read=10L)
    data2 <- fetch(res3, n = -1)
    data2

    res4 <- dbSendQuery(con, "select * from emp where deptno = :1",
                        data3 <- data.frame(deptno = 10), bulk_write=10L)
    data3 <- fetch(res4, n = -1)
    data3

    res5 <- dbSendQuery(con, "select * from emp where ename = :1",
                        data4 <- data.frame(ename = 'SMITH')) 
    data4 <- fetch(res5, n = -1)
