The Database object allows an application to access and interact with a relational database.


Description of the Database object


Use the database object to connect to a remotely stored relational database stored on a server.


The database object can be used to perform the following tasks on a relational database:


Execute SQL statements and queries on the database server

Iterate the results of a query in order to process or display them

Manage database transactions

Run stored procedures


When closing down a database, be sure to close any associated open cursors, result sets, and stored-procedure objects, or else unpredictable results may occur.
