    using nested tables

    Could someone give an example of when a nested table, or varray would be applicable? I have restrained from using them mainly because I don't think there is any way to use them with cmp entity beans. Is there a way to use them with cmp entity beans? The only situation I can think of is if there was say a user with a corresponding table that contained a nested table for something like user propeties. It seems that collection types are more for speed and organization than normalization.
    Thanks,
    Philip

    They are a violation of 1st normal form but appeal to OO programmers who don't appreciate the value of normalisation.
