"better way for the "point and click" crowd to directly map the XML data to database tables rather than using the PL/SQL approach."
Yes, you'll get this in ESB and BPEL.
ESB and BPEL uses new (for InterConnect) JCA DB adapter. This adapter is uses Toplink mappings (DB->Java virtualization->XML) for interract with DB. Adapter Wizard is constructing this mappings for you.
Sounds great OCC, thanks. Took a TopLink internal Oracle class when I used to work for Oracle, I remember a bit about the object-relational mapping aspects, makes sense that would be the tool to use, neat. So yeah, if someone could point me to some ESB documentation, that would be great, I can research and submit a proposal to our management. Thanks!
"if someone could point me to some ESB documentation"
For ex. Application Server 10g Release 3 (10.1.3) Patch Set 3 (10.1.3.3.0) documentation
Found it folks, in between putting out fires :P
BTW, can ESB be purchased solo, or does one have to purchase BPEL?
ESB can be purchased solo; in fact if you have Integration you have a licence for ESB - it is the replacement product.
There is very very little useful serious implementation documentation for ESB as yet. it's still mostly blogroll stuff.
However the same could be said for Interconnect.
the oracle folks assume you are a SOA/XPATH/XML eccentric and put it very close to the bone
