Best way to check boolean value

Hi!
I have a schema defining an XML element with a boolean attribute. The document related to this schema use true/false literal boolean values, eg:
<myelement myattribute="false"/>....<myelement myattribute="true"/>
The data is stored in binary xml storage.
I query the db on the boolean attribute with an xpath condition like this:
..../myelement[@myattribute=false()]
Querying the db with this method:
SELECT XMLQuery('....' returning content) from dual
all works as expected.
Instead, using:
SELECT XMLQuery('....' ' PASSING OBJECT_VALUE RETURNING CONTENT)
FROM "myxmltable"
WHERE XMLExists('....' PASSING OBJECT_VALUE);
I get the error: ORA-31038: Invalid hexBinary value: "false"
To get the second query method working, I have to change the xpath condition, forcing a string comparison:
..../myelement[string(@myattribute)="false"]
Can someone explain me this behaviour? What is the best way to check a boolean value? I'd like to write the same xquery working in both methods!
Thank you.

This is my test script:
-- This works fine: returns only the requested row.
SELECT XMLQuery('declare default element namespace "http://OracleTest"; collection("/Testing")/MyElement/SecondChild[@B=true()]' returning content) from dual;
-- This raises the error = SQL Error: ORA-31038: Invalid hexBinary value: "true"
select xmlquery('declare default element namespace "http://OracleTest"; /MyElement/SecondChild[@B=true()]' passing object_value returning content).getclobval() from "MyElement";
-- This doesn't work correctly: returns the requested row and two empty rows ?!? I don't like this cast, anyway.
select xmlquery('declare default element namespace "http://OracleTest"; /MyElement/SecondChild[string(@B)="true"]' passing object_value returning content).getclobval() from "MyElement";

  • Best way to extract XML value wiith an xpath

    Hello,
    I wonder what is the best way to extract text value from XmlType with an xpath.
    I need to insert a row inside a table where the row's data come from xpath extractions of an XmlType. I do a lot of (approximative 20) :
    EXTRACTVALUE(var.myxmltype , '/an/xpath/to/extract/elem1').
    EXTRACTVALUE(var.myxmltype , '/an/xpath/to/extract/elemI').
    EXTRACTVALUE(var.myxmltype , '/an/xpath/to/extract/elem20').
    inside the insert statement
    Is this way is the best or is there a more optimal way ?
    For example extracting the node '/an/xpath/to/extract/' and sarting from this node extracting "elem1", ... , "elemI", "elemN" children.
    Thanks for your help,
    Regards,
    Nicolas

    Hi Nicolas,
    The answer depends on your actual storage method (binary, OR, CLOB?), and db version.
    You can try XMLTable, it might be better in this case :
    SELECT x.elem1, x.elem2, ... , x.elem20
    FROM your_table t
       , XMLTable(
          '/an/xpath/to/extract'
          passing t.myxmltype
          columns elem1  varchar2(30) path 'elem1'
                , elem2  varchar2(30) path 'elem2'
                , elem20 varchar2(30) path 'elem20'
         ) x
    ;

  • Best way to get the values of local variables

    What is currently the best way to get the values of local variables. I know it is not currently possible to set watchpoints on local variables, but what are the best workarounds?

    You have to use StackFrame methods, eg, visibleVariables and getValues. To get a StackFrame for a thread, that thread has to be suspended, eg, by a BreakpointEvent.

  • Best way to change TreeMap value?

    Hello,
    I am wondering what is the best way to change a value in a TreeMap? I have retrieved a value by .get on the key i.e.
    String aString = (TreeMap) aTreeMap.get(aKey);but would now like to change aString and ?.put? it back into the map?
    How would I do this?
    Thank you,
    Poot.

    but would now like to change aString and ?.put? it
    back into the map?Do I just have to keep a note on the (key,value) - especially key - change the value and then .put(key,value) back in? Though I'll need to remove the initial pairing if I do this since TreeMap won't allow duplicate keys!
    There must be an easier way as this.

    Regards,

    There is nothing set by default.
    However, if it has been configured properly by the administrator after db creation, through the menu Peopletools>Utilities>Administration>Peopletools Options, the following query should return the type of the database :
    select systemtype from psoptions;Otherwise the following could help to understand what database you are on.
    From HRMS9.1 DMO database :
    SQL> select count(*) from ps_employees;

  • Best Way to Check for same Word in string?

    If I have an array of words, would the best way to check for the same word be to use 2 for loops?

    What is a word? Presumably a String.
    For equality of Strings you use...
        String s1 = ....
        String s2 =....
        if (s1 == s2) { equal depending on null case
        else if ((s1 != null) && (s1.equals(s2))) { equal }
    For the case of checking one array to another....
          while items in array1
                 get itema from array1
                      while items in array2
                           get itemb array2
                                  is itemb equal (see above) to itema

  • What's the best way to check whether a user is logged in or not?

    I have a question about basic session handling.
    I'm running Tomcat 5.0.30 and have a web application where users can register with a username and password, and then log into a "member site".
    What is the best way of making sure that a user actually has logged in or not?
    What I've done in previous applications I've made is that I've just put a simple variable into the users session after he has successfully entered his password (i.e. Boolean loggedIn=true). Then I just test if this flag is true to grant him access to the member site. Is that a smart way of doing it?
    Are there any libraries I can use which handles sessions for me in a secure way?
    All comments and suggestions are appreciated!

    Maintain a flag using session attributes it to one when the user is logs in set it to value.... and change set it zero or invalidate that session... when the user is logged out...
    use something like this while user had logged in
    session.setAttribute("flag",<unique_number>);
    for checking whether the user had logged in or not...
    if(Integer.parseInt(session.getAttribute("flag").toString())=!<unique_number>){
    out.println("The session had expired");
    out.close();

  • What is the best way to implement default values stored in a DB table?

    [JHeadstart 10.1.3 build 78]
    [JDeveloper 10.1.3 SU4]
    We are struggling on how to best implement default values that are stored in a DB table. What we have is a database table with (CODE_TYPE, TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, DEFAULT_VALUE) as columns. This way the application administrator can administer default values himself/herself. Now we need to find the best way to set these table supplied default values in new rows. Globally we are aware of two ways:
    - override create() method on VO
    - probably create a View Object on top of the database table with default values (we are capable of transposing the table and return exactly one row with a column for each default value) and use JHeadstarts item property 'Default Value'.
    We prefer the latter, since this is more declarative, however we struggle with the EL expression needed to indicate the default value.
    If we have a VO named "DefaultValues" with a SELECT on a view on top of our database table (transposed) returning exactly one row, let us say:
    SELECT orglanguage, orgtype, orgstatus [...]
    FROM v_default_values
    --> returning exactly one row
    and we want an EL expression on an item that needs the value from orglanguage. What will the EL expression be? Something like:
    #{data.DefaultValuesPageDef.currentrow.orglanguage.inputValue}? We tried several things but they do not work. A static default value works, but every EL expression so far does not. We know that using "data" can be dangerous, but thought JHeadstart takes care of preparing the other Page Definitions, so it might be possible when you use JHeadstart.
    Or is overriding the create() method the preferred way? Or do we have to look at a Managed Bean for our default values that we refer to from EL (let us say MyAppDefaultValuesBean) and in that case: how do you associate a Managed Bean with a VO?
    Any help would be appreciated. Apart from these default values, things are going rather well in this first J2EE/JHS project for us!

    Steven,
    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately whatever we try, we cannot get it to work. We started looking at the second option (since we do need default values also in table lay-out new rows). We created a DefaultValues ViewObject, added it to the Application Module, added an EL expressiona to the Default Display Value property (replacing your ending ")" with a "}" offcourse ;-)), ran the JAG so that a page definition was generated for DefaultValues and we managed to get it prepared when loading for example the Organisation's jspx page. However no default value appears in a new row (not in Form, not in Table layout).
    I then created a quick application on top of the HR schema, added a DefaultValues ViewObject using one calculated attribute (set Salary fixed to 1000), added the EL expression to the Salary Default Display Value property in the Employees Group, made sure the DefaultValuesPageDef is prepared by adding it to the parameter section and I see it getting prepared. I also see a managed Bean is created in the Employees-bean.xml.
    In the Embedded OC4J log we see:
    16:01:01 DEBUG (JhsPageLifecycle) -executing onCreate
    16:01:01 DEBUG (JhsPageLifecycle) -CreateEmployeesDefaultValues bean found, applying default values to new row
    2006-08-02 16:01:01.825 WARNING [ADFc] Warning: No Method onCreateEmployees and no actionBinding CreateEmployees found.
    Is it this warning we should be worried about? Since no default value is created.

    We do not understand what is wrong and why the default values do not get created in the new rows (and it is taking us far too much time). Any chance the EL expression is still wrong? It is a shame that any syntax errors in EL expressions are not visible in some logfile. It looks like when EL expressions are wrong, they are ignored instead of raising an error...

  • Best way to use return values in a webservices

    Hi all,
    Scenario: We have three web services. What is the best way to do this acitivity or is it possible?
    webservice1
    webservice2
    webservice3
    Call invoke webservice1 & 2 (they need to their work do be done parallely and will return a value eg "string")and call webservices3 with input values as the returned value from webservice 1 & 2.
    Thanks,

    Edited by: Shashi_sr on Sep 17, 2010 1:46 PM

    Hi Shashi,
    The way to achieve your desired functionality is as follows:
    Create a flow activity, and within that flow activity, you will call web services (using an invoke activity) webservice1 and webservice2.
    After the flow activity, you will then use another invoke activity to call the 3rd webservice using the output given by the first 2 webservices.

  • Best way to distribute configuration values to subVIs

    I have a main VI with ~10 subVIs, all of which have a number of default constants embedded. I want to change my architecture so that all the constants are moved to a single ASCII text file which is not changed during program execution. I'm trying to decide the best way to do this:
    - Read the file every time a subvi is opened (this is frequent).
    - Use the "Read Key" function (this may be essentially the same).
    - Read the file once at the beginning of execution, and store the values in a cluster which is passed to each subVI.
    - Read the file once at the beginning of execution, and store the values in several clusters, passing only the needed values to a given subVI.
    - Read the file once at the beginning of execution, and store the values in a functional (LV2) global which is read by each subVI when it is called.
    I think all of these would work, but what would be the most efficient in terms of programming time, execution time, memory usage, and ease of future modification? I'm leaning toward the multiple clusters approach so that I'm not constantly reading a file each time a subVI opens.
    Thanks to all,
    James

    Consider using what I call a "manager" VI. Its purpose is to manage the file for you.
    You call it whever you want to know one of these parameters.
    It knows whether it's read the file yet or not. If not, it does so on first call.
    After that, it simply keeps all your values in its own memory (shift registers).
    When you call it, it simply gives you the value(s) out of its memory, either as a big cluster, or as separated values.
    That way, you only read the file once.

    ,          s.major_seq_nbrThis gives me a bunch of descriptive statistics on some data stored in the database, broken into groups by the time period.
    I have 7 sets of possible values for the column wctr_id that are groups of similar/same work centers, and should be treated as the same, assuming the ord_nbr, sub_ord_nbr, and major_seq_nbr are the same. In my example case statement above, anytime I find 'H211' or 'H212', I am replacing it with 'Z211', which is my new, unique identifier for any wctr in the group ('H211', 'H212'). I have 7 of these sorts of groups that need to be replaced by a new, unique identifier. Is my CASE statement (noted above) the best way to do this, or is there a better way? These groups of similar-to wctr_id's are not listed in a table anywhere.

    Hi,
    As always, thanks for posting the CREATE TABLE and INSERT statements; that's very helpful, and leads to faster, better solutions.
    Another thing that is helpful, and promotes faster, better solutions, is to simplify your problem.
    For example, you have to compute a lot of aggregates, but it looks like you already know how to do that. This problem only involves the CASE expressions, and how they interact with the GROUP BY clause. So just cut out most of the aggregate functions.
    Also, it looks like the intricacies of in-line view a have nothing to do with your current problem. For purposes of posting this problem, pretend that a is a regular view, so it doesn't clutter up the main query.
    I think your problem could be restated like this:
    You already have a query like this:

    Is that a fair description of the problem?
    For starters, you can use column aliases in the ORDER BY clause. Unfortunately, that's the only place where you can use column aliases in the same query where they are defined . You can compute them in a sib-query, and then use them in super-queries.
    In other words, wouldn't it be nice if we had a table just like op_detail, but with an additional column called wctr? Make a view: either a regular view (especially if wctr, computed the same way, will be used in several different queries) or an in-line view, as shown below.
    Wouldn't it be great if there was a table that was just like a, except that it had time_period alreay computed? Make a view: either a regular view or an in-line view, as shown below.

    ;In your example, wctr is the same as wctr_id except for two values. If it was more complicated (e.g., if there were not just 2 values that need to be mapped to 'Z211', but also 3 values to were equivalent to 'Z987', and 1 that was to be treated like 'A012', and 5 that should appear as 'A666', and ...), then you could code all that in a humongeous CASE expression (a nested CASE expression, if it involves more that 128 branches), but it really belongs in a table, where you have the raw wctr_id (like 'H211') in one column, and its corresponding equivalent (such as 'Z211') in another. I know you said you can't create new tables; I'm just pointing this out so you can tell the people who won't let you create new tables that it's a bad idea, likely to cause errors and certain to waste time in the future.

    How can i store these values in c# ?,which is the best way with respect to performance and security.
    And whether i can store these data's in separate class file and access at time of process which is a multi-threading process.
    If i asked any thing wrong sorry as i am new in these things.
    Thanks

  • Best way to select distinct values based on another column?

    I have a table with three columns: id (NUMBER), data_dt (DATE), and data_value (NUMBER).
    There is a primary key on id and data_dt.
    I want to select the record with the latest data_dt for each unique id.
    What is the best way to do this?
    I have three different methods, but there may be something I am missing.
    First:
    SELECT *
    FROM
      SELECT id, data_dt, data_value,
             FIRST_VALUE(data_dt)
             OVER (PARTITION BY id ORDER BY data_dt DESC) AS last_data_dt
      FROM the_table
    WHERE data_dt = last_data_dt;(I use ORDER BY...DESC instead of just ORDER BY so I don't need the ROWS BETWEEN clause)
    Second:
    SELECT t1.*
    FROM the_table t1
    JOIN
      SELECT id, MAX(data_dt) AS last_data_dt
      FROM the_table
      GROUP BY id
    ) t2 ON (t2.id = t1.id AND t2.data_dt = t1.data_dt);Third:
    SELECT t1.*
    FROM the_table t1
    WHERE t1.data_dt =
      SELECT MAX(t2.data_dt)
      FROM the_table t2
      WHERE t2.id = t1.id
    );-- Don

    Hi,
    There are more possible scenario's, for example:
    select t1.*
    from   the_table t1
    where not exists ( select null
                       from   the_table t2
                       and    t2.data_dt > t1.data_dt
    What is the best way to do this?Only you can tell:
    Test all scenario's, check the execution plans, set timing on and pick the best/fastest one ;-)
    If it's not clear, please post the execution plans here.

  • Best way to check the data

    I have a made some changes to an existing view. The change is adding a join and a new column from new table. I have created a version2 with all these changes. I want to make sure that same data exists in both the views. what is the best way to test the data.

    Bad wording, the query results could be:
    No rows selected. Same number of rows on both views and same data (considering view1 structure and view without the new column)
    At least one row selected. If the count(*) on both was different, rows returned will be at least the difference. If the count was the same, then every returned row means that there's no equivalent row on view2 and a data difference may exist in at least one of the fields, so You have to find the equivalent row on view2 to compare.
    On the query sintaxis, as view2 hava a new column and I guess it's not a constant value, You have to specify every column for the view1, and the same columns for view2, so new field isn't included and compared.
