I would be interested too, as the only way for retrieving SQL executed in database I know is querying V$SQL view (directly or using some tool extracting that).

But maybe you wanted to ask something totally different.
My bet is on "how to retrieve data for an application using stored procedure". But, this is just a wild guess.

I am not satisfied with the answer. Somewhere I read that two methods are Select and Cursor. Any please tell me the correct answer.

Since neither "select" nor "cursor" are "methods to retrieve SQL" I'm not satisfied with your question either.

Please ask a question that makes sense.

Retrieving data from where to where in what context.

At the low-level database level for example there are different methods Oracle used to retrieve data from the data files, for example db file scattered read or db file sequential read.

At the SQL level there is basically only one way to retrieve the result data, namely FETCH.

Then there are dozens of different ways to retrieve data in the PL/SQL level, like cursors, arrays, etc....

And still dozen more ways to retrieve data on the network / driver level.

You need to give more information about in what context your question is asked.

Laughing ahhh, the unintended humour of the misunderstood arrogance of that statement.
