Response to: Apples to Apples?
First, UDTs (Oracle or not) are portable because they are part of the SQL:1999 standard which has been implemented by vendors other than Oracle. Second, the use of Java is no more portable that the use of Oracle. Both are portable only because implementations of the core software, the DBMS for Oracle and JVM for Java are provided for most operating systems. So there's nothing *non-portable* about UDTs of Oracle. Third, the lack of the ability to do navigational access only exists in the weakness of the SQLData interface. Oracle's ORAData interface provides this kind of capability.
