Oracle XBRL Extension leverages the XML DB feature of Oracle Database to provide an Enterprise class solution for collecting, storing, querying, analyzing, and managing XBRL content. It adds support for XBRL storage in the Oracle Database, allowing organizations to reliably and securely store, query and manage large volumes of XBRL content. When it is integrated with a 3rd party XBRL Processing Engine, Oracle XBRL Extension supports end-to-end processing and validation of XBRL content on the way into or out of the Oracle Database. In short, Oracle XBRL Extension allows creators and consumers of XBRL content to develop, deploy, and manage applications that leverage all the benefits of the XBRL model.
Currently in its second release, the XBRL Extension to Oracle Database software is available for download from the Oracle Support web site as a patch file.
