C. This would not require an INSTEAD of Trigger, rather you would specify BEFORE
UPDATE OF ColumnName ON TableName.

B. changes only to packaged public variables defined in a package body
C. changes only to packaged public variables defined in a package specification
D. changes to database tables or packaged public variables defined in a package body
E. changes to database tables or packaged variables defined in a package specification
Side effects are defined as changes to the database tables or the public packaged
A. Side effects are not limited to changes to the database tables. They also include
changes to public packaged variables.

CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE discounts
PROCEDURE display_price(p_price NUMBER);
CREATE OR REPLACE PACKAGE BODY discounts
PROCEDURE display_price (p_price NUMBERI)
DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT LINE ( 'Discounted '||
The SOL*Plus SERVEROUTPUT setting is turned on in your session. You execute
the procedure DISPLAY_PRICE from SOL*Plus with the command EXECUTE
What is the result?
A. Discounted 10
B. Discounted 100
C. Discounted 0.00
D. Discounted NULL
E. Discounted 0.10
The discounts package contains a one-time-only procedure which is executed when the
package is first referenced and sets the public variable discount_rate = .10. The value of
100 is passed to the p_price parameter and this is multipled by the discount_rate resulting
in a value of 'Discounted 10' is displayed by the DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE.
B, C, D & E are incorrect
WWW.ExamMagic.COM - 102: Which two statements about functions are true? (Choose two.)
A. A function must have a return statement in its body to execute successfully
B. Client-side functions can be used in SOL statements
C. A stored function that is called from a SOL statement can return a value of any
PL/SOL variable data type
D. From SOL*Plus, a function can be executed by giving the command EXECUTE
E. A stored function increases efficiency of queries by performing functions on the server
rather than in the application
Answer: A, E
There should be a RETURN statement in the function body. If the RETURN statement in
section is omitted, the function will successfully compile but the
following error will be generated at run time:
ORA-06503: PL/SQL: Function returned without value
This is because the function does not return any value to the calling block.
E. User-defined functions increase the efficiency of queries by applying the functions in
itself. This improves performance because the data will be filtered on the server as
opposed to the client which will reduce network traffic.
B. Functions must be stored on the server to be used in a SQL Statement.
C. Functions called from SQL expressions should return the data type that is compatible with
SQL. PL\SQL Data Types such as BOOLEAN, RECORD, or TABLE data types are not supported
D. Functions are not called like procedures. You cannot use EXECUTE to invoke a
function unless you have a variable to hold the returning value.

What does the BFILENAME function do?
www.ExamMagic.com 1Z0-147 A. It reads data from an external BFILE
B. It checks for the existence of an external BFILE
C. It returns a BFILE locator that is associated with a physical LOB binary file on the
server's file system
D. It creates a directory object for use with the external BFILEs
In Oracle/PLSQL, the BFILENAME function returns a BFILE locator for a physical
LOB binary file.
A. DBMS_LOB.READ Procedure reads data from a BFILE.
B. DBMS_LOB.FILEEXISTS functions checks for the existence of the file on the
D. You do not use the BFILENAME function to create a directory object. The syntax
to create the directory object is:
CREATE DIRECTORY<directory name> AS <operating system path>
