Passing oracle object from php to oracle

Hi all

I'm trying to work out whether it is possible to :

1. Generate a table of oracle objects in PHP
2. Pass that table of oracle objects to Oracle.

This is as far as I've got :

Oracle Code :
create table x ( a int , b int );

create type ty_x as object ( a int , b int )

create type tty_x as table of ty_x
That defines the Oracle portion - what I am trying to do with the PHP below is create a variable of type tty_x, append a variable of type ty_x to it, and then pass my variable of type tty_x to Oracle :

PHP Code

// Connects to the XE service (i.e. database) on the "localhost" machine
$conn = oci_connect('system', 'hello', 'localhost/XE');
if (!$conn) {
    $e = oci_error();
    trigger_error(htmlentities($e['message'], ENT_QUOTES), E_USER_ERROR);

$stid = oci_parse($conn, 'SELECT * FROM x');

echo "<table border='1'>\n";
while ($row = oci_fetch_array($stid, OCI_ASSOC+OCI_RETURN_NULLS)) {
    echo "<tr>\n";
    foreach ($row as $item) {
        echo "    <td>" . ($item !== null ? htmlentities($item, ENT_QUOTES) : "&nbsp;") . "</td>\n";
    echo "</tr>\n";
echo "</table>\n";

$ts = oci_parse($conn , 'insert into x select * from table ( cast ( :d as tty_x ) )');

$tyx = oci_new_collection($conn, 'TY_X');

//do something to populate the elements of TY_X here ... 

$ttyx = oci_new_collection($conn, 'TTY_X');

$ttyx->append ( $tyx );

oci_bind_by_name ($ts, ':d', $ttyx, -1, OCI_B_NTY);



Successive executions of the PHP do insert records into the table x, but what I am struggling with now is populating the attributes of type ty_x ,so that data appears in my table.

Does anybody know if this is possible?
