You are going to give a presentation on a topic you don't know?

Personally, I would be honest and step aside.  If you do continue, I wish you all the luck in the world.

If there's a Q&A, you'll likely stumble and lose all your credibility.

I would seriously start diving into the docs.

Pipelined functions:
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/appdev.112/e17126/tuning.htm#LNPLS916

I'm not familiar with an 'inline function'.

giving a presentation on new topics is fine,  
in fact,  helping to teach others can be one of the best way to learn material yourself.

with every release of oracle I've gone to the new features section  and immediately started trying to write example code to share with other people.  I had no idea what some of them were or how to use them best; but the process of trying to figure that out in a way that I could explain it somebody else helped cement the information in my own mind.

but, as slightwv mentioned,  be prepared to admit your limits.


Steven Feurstein has released many of his presentations.

Go to his PL/SQL Obsession site and look for his Brave New World from 2005.  It has several slides pipelining (calling them table functions) along with that are lots of slides on collections which go right along with pipelining.

For inline functions.  There isn't a lot to say.  Go to the 11g pl/sql documentation and write up some examples.

Do some timings with and without inlining to show benefits
