Database link and user defined datatypes

To use an object table or an object column over a database link, a type with the same OID as remote type must exist locally.


SQL> conn user1/***@remotedb01
Connected.
SQL> create type tt as object (x number)
2 /
Type created.
SQL> create table t (x tt);
Table created.
SQL> insert into t values (tt(1));
1 row created.
SQL> commit;
Commit complete.
SQL> select t.x.x from t t;
X.X
---------------
1


SQL> conn user1/***@localdb01
Connected.
SQL> select t.x.x from t@remotedb01 t;
select t.x.x from t@remotedb01 t

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-22804: remote operations not permitted on object tables or user-defined type columns

$ oerr ora 22804
22804, 00000, "remote operations not permitted on object tables or user-defined type columns"
*Cause: An attempt was made to perform queries or DML
operations on remote object tables or on remote
table columns whose type is one of object, REF,
nested table or VARRAY.

But, there is a solution — otherwise I wouldn’t write this post today


SQL> select type_name,TYPE_OID from user_types@remotedb01 t;
TYPE_NAME TYPE_OID
--------- --------------------------------
TT C6760780CC0BFA67E0539A24840A3B40
SQL> create type tt
2 oid 'C6760780CC0BFA67E0539A24840A3B40'
3 as object(x number)
4 /
Type created.
SQL> select t.x.x from t@remotedb01 t;

X.X
---------------
1

It’s that simple, we create the type locally, with the same OID
