COM Automation
The Oracle COM Automation Feature provides PL/SQL and Java packages that allow stored procedure developers to call COM Automation servers, such as Microsoft Office. These packages expose APIs that allow developers to instantiate COM objects, get and set their properties, and invoke their methods. Developers can call these APIs from PL/SQL and Java subprograms, stored procedures, stored functions, and triggers. With the COM Automation Feature, the Oracle database can be programmed to automatically populate Microsoft Excel spreadsheets or send emails with selected data based on pre-programmed events.
