Teradata Database automatically generates observer and mutator methods for each attribute of a structured UDT. Observer and mutator methods have the same name as the attribute for which they are generated.

Method Description Invocation Example
Observer Takes no arguments and returns the current value of the attribute. “Example”
Mutator Takes one argument and returns a new UDT instance with the specified attribute set to the value of the argument. “Example: Methods and Functions”
