Collections are PL/SQL's version of arrays and there are three types: associative arrays, nested tables, varrays. They are used in many performance features of PL/SQL, such as bulk processing, as well as table functions. Steven Feuerstein uses them all the time and thinks you should, too. He kicked off this Office Hours with some of his favorite collections features/usages, and then he and Chris Saxon answered questions on measuring PGA, executing DML in parallel, and more.
