16.20 - Using the JSON Type with UDMs - Teradata Vantage NewSQL Engine

Teradata Vantageā„¢ JSON Data Type

Teradata Database
Teradata Vantage NewSQL Engine
March 2019
Programming Reference
You can create a user-defined method (UDM) containing one or more parameters and return type that is a JSON type.
You cannot create methods for the JSON type. The only methods a JSON type can use are those that are automatically created by Teradata Database. Therefore, you cannot specify a JSON type name in the FOR clause of a CREATE/REPLACE METHOD statement.

JSON FNC functions and Java classes and methods are provided to enable a UDF, UDM, or external stored procedure to access and set the value of a JSON parameter, or to get information about the JSON type parameter. For information about these functions and methods, see Teradata Vantageā„¢ SQL External Routine Programming , B035-1147 .
