Example :

If table has two columns

S.No     Hostname        URL

1           abc                    
2           efg
3           hij
4           klmn

the result after query execution should be:

S.No     Hostname        URL

1           abc                    http://abc.xyz.com
2           efg                     http://efg.xyz.com
3           hij                      http://hij.xyz.com
4           klmn                 http://klmn.xyz.com


Please help me with an oracle statement.

something like

update table set url='http://<correspondinghostname>.xyz.com'

Any help would be highly appreciated.
