In Pro*C or OCI, we can use an host array as a bind value to submit array operations, it will reduce the network round trips, user calls and execute count, it can greatly improve the performance. In Java there is a "executeBatch" interface, and Perl also support bulk operation when using latest Oracle DBD (version 1.19 or above) with "execute_array" interface.
I will tell you how to perform bulk delete in PL/SQL now, just copy and modify it as your requests.
TYPE ARRROWID IS TABLE OF ROWID INDEX BY BINARY_INTEGER;
cursor delete_table is select row_id from testobj_rowid ORDER BY ROWID;
fetch delete_table bulk collect into tbrows limit 250;
FORALL row IN 1 .. tbrows.count()
DELETE TEST.TESTOBJ WHERE rowid = tbrows(row);
-- dbms_lock.sleep(1); /* if delete too fast */
exit when delete_table%notfound;
Now you should be able to write out bulk insert or bulk update code, it's easy.
