Subject Stored procedure array input parameters
Author Daniel Miller
Are there any plans to implement array input parameters for stored

I'm trying to use stored procedures to hide the database implementation
from my application - so I can change my table structure with virtually
no changes to my app. So far, it's gone reasonably well.

My problem now is trying to work with a group of records as a single
entity. I didn't want to use array columns as this requires a fixed
dimension - and I wanted it variable. But now I don't see how to send a
variable amount of information to a procedure for storage. The only way
I see it now is to declare a fixed list of input parameters - more than
I anticipate storing, and then checking those parameters for null
values. This seems clumsy.

If someone has a better idea, please share!
