Pipeline Function

Hi

Looking for some help in creating a pipeline function instead of using a ref cursor.  As an example but will expand later, I wish to select on the following with an in param:

in_integerdate_param in number

Select
   First_name,
   Last_name
from
  name_table
where integer_date = in_integerdate_param

Thanks in advance

first you need to create an object to hold each row, then an object to hold the collection that will be piped, then create the function...

CREATE TYPE person_type AS OBJECT
(
    first_name VARCHAR2(100),
    last_name VARCHAR2(100)
);

CREATE TYPE person_table AS TABLE OF person_type;

CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION get_names(in_integerdate_param IN NUMBER)
    RETURN person_table
    PIPELINED
AS
BEGIN
    FOR x IN (SELECT first_name, last_name
                FROM name_table
               WHERE integer_date = in_integerdate_param)
    LOOP
        PIPE ROW (person_type(x.first_name, x.last_name));
    END LOOP;

    RETURN;
END get_names;
