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.
