Creates a new instance of com.teradata.fnc.Array when a NULL is passed in as the INOUT parameter of a Java external stored procedure.

  • This method is supported for both 1-D and N-D arrays. However, this method is provided mainly for support of N-D arrays because the com.teradata.fnc.Array class provides some additional method signatures especially for N-D arrays. For 1-D arrays, it is recommended to use any generic implementation of java.sql.Array instead, because 1-D array support conforms to the JDBC standard.
  • This method is a Teradata extension.


com.teradata.fnc.Array getXSPInoutArrayForNull(int  param_index)
                            throws Exception


The index of the particular INOUT parameter as it appears in the list of parameters for the Java external stored procedure, starting from 0.

Return Value

A new object of type com.teradata.fnc.Array.

The new com.teradata.fnc.Array object is initialized with the type information provided for the INOUT parameter of the external stored procedure.

If the array is defined as DEFAULT NULL, the new com.teradata.fnc.Array object will have all its elements initialized to NULL. Otherwise, no elements are initialized.
