1 Introduction : 1.1 What’s New

The following database compatibility for Oracle features have been added to Advanced Server 9.6 to create Advanced Server 10:
Advanced Server now supports usage of a composite type (created by the CREATE TYPE AS command) referenced by a field as its data type within a user-defined record type (declared with the TYPE IS RECORD statement). This record type containing a composite type can only be declared in a package specification or a package body. A composite type is not compatible with Oracle databases. However, composite types can generally be used within all SPL programs (functions, procedures, triggers, packages, etc.) as long as the composite type is not part of a record type (with the exception of packages). For more information on composite types, see Section 2.3.36.
