Hi All,

I have problem in extracting xml type into varibles in pl/sql procedure.

My xml document is something like this

....
...
<Service Result>
<Code> 123 </Code>
<Data> abc</Data>
</Service Result>
<Service Fault >
<Faults count="3">
<Code> 900 </Code>
<Desc> xxxxxxxxx</Desc>
</Faults>
<Faults>
<Code> 1000 </Code>
<Desc> yyyyy</Desc>
</Faults>
<Faults>
<Code> 2000 </Code>
<Desc> yddyyyy</Desc>
</Faults>
</Service Fault>
..........
.......

I am using extract function to get values of Service Result like below:

p_sr_code :=RESPONSE.extract('/doSingleRecordResponse/doSingleRecordResult/ServiceResult/Code/text()','').getStringVal;

p_sr_data :=RESPONSE.extract('/doSingleRecordResponse/doSingleRecordResult/ServiceResult/data/text()', '').getStringVal;

if i want to get values of service fault tag , i have 3 faults here in theabove example . I tried using for loop like below:

p_ad_fcount :=RESPONSE.extract('/doSingleRecordResponse/doSingleRecordResult/Service Fault/Faults/@count','').getStringVal;

FOR i in 1 .. p_ad_fcount
LOOP
p_ad_code(i) :=RESPONSE.extract('/doSingleRecordResponse/doSingleRecordResult/Service Fault/Faults/code/text()',
'').getStringVal;
p_ad_desc(i) :=RESPONSE.extract('/doSingleRecordResponse/doSingleRecordResult/Service Fault/Faults//desc/text()',''
).getStringVal;


end loop;


But it was throwing error :

Can anyone please help me how to retrieve these kinds of tags into varibles?

Note: i declayred p_ad_code &p_ad_desc as varrays .
END IF;

I had slightly to modify Your XML, hope this simple example helps:
WITH DATA AS
     (SELECT XMLTYPE
                ('
<data>
<Service_Result>
  <Code> 123 </Code>
  <Data> abc</Data>
</Service_Result>
<Service_Fault>
  <Faults count="3">
    <Code> 900 </Code>
    <Desc> xxxxxxxxx</Desc>
  </Faults>
  <Faults>
    <Code> 1000 </Code>
    <Desc> yyyyy</Desc>
  </Faults>
  <Faults>
    <Code> 2000 </Code>
    <Desc> yddyyyy</Desc>
  </Faults>
</Service_Fault>
</data>') xml_data
        FROM dual)
SELECT 
  EXTRACTVALUE (VALUE (x), '//Code') codenr,
  EXTRACTVALUE (VALUE (x), '//Desc') descr
  FROM DATA, TABLE (XMLSEQUENCE (EXTRACT (xml_data, '//Faults'))) x

CODENR DESCR
-------------------
900 xxxxxxxxx
1000 yyyyy
2000 yddyyyy

What prevent you from looping on a select in PL/SQL?

FOR i in 1 .. p_ad_fcount
LOOP
p_ad_code(i) :=RESPONSE.extract('/doSingleRecordResponse/doSingleRecordResult/Service Fault/Faults/code/text()',
'').getStringVal;
p_ad_desc(i) :=RESPONSE.extract('/doSingleRecordResponse/doSingleRecordResult/Service Fault/Faults//desc/text()',''
).getStringVal;

I am using the above loop to retrieve data into varray variable , but i am not getting any data, it is erroring out.

You just have to do
with ...
select ... bulk collect into p_ad_code, p_ad_desc
from ...
instead of the loop and so on.

Ok . I got you. I never used " with " inside pl/sql so i was confused . When i am researching on xmltypes in oracle ,i cam across one example where we can use indexes with elements if we have more than one element which is pasted below.

You can use the index mechanism to identify individual elements in case of repeated elements in an XML document. For example, if you have an XML document such as:

<PO>
<PONO>100</PONO>
<PONO>200</PONO>
</PO>


you can use:

//PONO[1] to identify the first "PONO" element (with value 100).
//PONO[2] to identify the second "PONO" element (with value 200).


So i was trying to use something like this :

p_ad_code1 :=RESPONSE.extract('/doSingleRecordResponse/doSingleRecordResult/Address/Faults/Fault[1]/code[1]/text()', '').getStringVal;

But it is erroring out. Can you help me why this is erroring out .

my xml is like this :

<Address>
<Faults count =3>
<Fault>
<code>12</code>
<desc>abcd</desc>
</Fault>
<Fault>
<code>34</code>
<desc> tgb </Desc>
</Fault>
</Faults>
</Address>

Why i am getting error(There was an Erorr in address validation -30625 ORA-30625: method dispatch on NULL SELF argument is disallowed) when i try to use index . If this works out then it would be easy for me to use instead of using with statement .

1/ Your Faults element is not well-formed, value must be enclosed between quotes
2/ Tags are case sensitive, if <desc> then </desc> not </Desc>
3/

SQL> with 
  2    data as ( 
  3      select xmltype(
  4  '<Address>
  5     <Faults count="3">
  6       <Fault>
  7         <code>12</code>
  8         <desc>abcd</desc>
  9       </Fault>
 10       <Fault>
 11         <code>34</code>
 12         <desc> tgb </desc>
 13       </Fault>
 14     </Faults>
 15   </Address>') xml_data 
 16      from dual 
 17    )
 18  select extractvalue(value(x), '/Faults/Fault[1]/code') code1
 19  from data, table(xmlsequence(extract(xml_data, '/Address/Faults'))) x
 20  /
CODE1
--------------------------------------------------------
12

1 row selected.

WITH is just a way to write a subquery.

Hi Mich,

I have one more concern .

create or replace procedure p1_ex as

response xmltype ;
TYPE te_sf IS VARRAY(20) OF VARCHAR2(100);
code te_sf :=NULL;
i number :=1;
code1 integer;
begin

response := xmltype('<doSingleRecordResponse xmlns="urn:mdWebService">
<doSingleRecordResult xsi:type="ResponseRecord" id="1" version="2.30" action="Response" timeout="20" timestamp="01-06-2010" transmissionReference="ABCD" TimeToProcess="171.8783" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<Address version="2.30">
<Faults count="3">
<Fault>
<Code>pkgAddressMailingEmptyCity</Code>
<Desc>Empty City</Desc>
<Source>/Request/Record/City</Source>
<Detail>mdDQ.mdWebService.RequestRecord.</Detail>
</Fault>
<Fault>
<Code>pkgAddressMailing:EmptyState</Code>
<Desc>Empty State</Desc>
<Source>/Request/Record/State</Source>
<Detail>mdDQ.mdWebService.RequestRecord.</Detail>
</Fault>
<Fault>
<Code>pkgAddressMailing:EmptyZip</Code>
<Desc>Empty Zip</Desc>
<Source>/Request/Record/Zip5</Source>
<Detail>mdDQ.mdWebService.RequestRecord.</Detail>
</Fault>
</Faults>
<Result>
<ErrorCode>Z</ErrorCode>
<ErrorDesc>Invalid ZIP/Postal Code</ErrorDesc>
<StatusCode>X</StatusCode>
<StatusDesc>Address was not coded.</StatusDesc>
</Result>
</Address>
</doSingleRecordResult>
</doSingleRecordResponse>
');




with data as (select response xml_data from dual)
select extractvalue(value(x), '//Desc') bulk collect into code
from data, table(xmlsequence(extract(xml_data, '//Fault','xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="urn:mdWebService"'
))) x;

dbms_output.put_line('xxx');
dbms_output.put_line(code(1));
dbms_output.put_line(code(2));

end;
/

In the above procedure , it is giving the below result :

xxx
xxx
xxx

instead of
xxx
Empty City
Empty State

.
Can you tel me why it is giving output like that .And i noticed that when i ran the below procedure it is giving correct result :

create or replace procedure p1_ex1 as

response xmltype ;
TYPE te_sf IS VARRAY(20) OF VARCHAR2(100);
code te_sf :=NULL;
i number :=1;
code1 integer;
begin

response := xmltype('
<Address version="2.30">
<Faults count="3">
<Fault>
<Code>pkgAddressMailingEmptyCity</Code>
<Desc>Empty City</Desc>
<Source>/Request/Record/City</Source>
<Detail>mdDQ.mdWebService.RequestRecord.</Detail>
</Fault>
<Fault>
<Code>pkgAddressMailing:EmptyState</Code>
<Desc>Empty State</Desc>
<Source>/Request/Record/State</Source>
<Detail>mdDQ.mdWebService.RequestRecord.</Detail>
</Fault>
<Fault>
<Code>pkgAddressMailing:EmptyZip</Code>
<Desc>Empty Zip</Desc>
<Source>/Request/Record/Zip5</Source>
<Detail>mdDQ.mdWebService.RequestRecord.</Detail>
</Fault>
</Faults>
<Result>
<ErrorCode>Z</ErrorCode>
<ErrorDesc>Invalid ZIP/Postal Code</ErrorDesc>
<StatusCode>X</StatusCode>
<StatusDesc>Address was not coded.</StatusDesc>
</Result>
</Address>
');




with data as (select response xml_data from dual)
select extractvalue(value(x), '//Desc') bulk collect into code
from data, table(xmlsequence(extract(xml_data, '//Fault'))) x;

dbms_output.put_line('shilpa');
dbms_output.put_line(code(1));
dbms_output.put_line(code(2));

end;
/

Only difference between these 2 procedure is response object is not having any namespace in first one and second have namespaces.

Do you have any idea why this is givign result like that.

Appreciate your help

Please format your code, read OraFAQ Forum Guide, "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code, use code tags and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.

The namespace must also been specified on EXTRACTVALUE:
