Hi there, i've seen some of your answers so i think what i need have to be very easy for you, i hope you can help me. I'm just starting using XML with ORACLE and all i need to do is getting the child node, but EXTRACTVALUE works only when tehere's just one node, so i don't know how to do it, can somebody help me, let use a simple XMl as example:

<PRODUCT>
<PLAN>
<COVER>
<COV_ID>69</COV_ID>
</COVER>
<COVER>
<COV_ID>64</COV_ID>
</COVER>
<COVER>
<COV_ID>65</COV_ID>
</COVER>
</PLAN>
<PLAN>
<COVER>
<COV_ID>69</COV_ID>
</COVER>
<COVER>
<COV_ID>64</COV_ID>
</COVER>
<COVER>
<COV_ID>65</COV_ID>
</COVER>
</PLAN>
</PRODUCT>

How can i extract COV_ID?

Thank you!

Not worthy of a named son, but helpful perhaps.

Good luck, Kevin

Hi,

Do you by any chance know what the Java equivilant of the ExtractValue function is?

I have been looking at javax.xml.xpath but it doesn't seem to be seeded on the Oracle E-business suite R11 database.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

I know this is an old thread, but in case anybody finds this by searching, the following is more efficient:

SCOTT@orcl_11g> SELECT extractvalue
  2          (column_value,
  3           '/COVER/COV_ID')
  4  FROM   TABLE
  5           (XMLSEQUENCE
  6             (EXTRACT
  7               (XMLTYPE
  8                 ('<PRODUCT>
  9                     <PLAN>
 10                       <COVER>
 11                         <COV_ID>69</COV_ID>
 12                       </COVER>
 13                       <COVER>
 14                         <COV_ID>64</COV_ID>
 15                       </COVER>
 16                       <COVER>
 17                         <COV_ID>65</COV_ID>
 18                       </COVER>
 19                     </PLAN>
