    Represents Oracle pipe.

    A pipe is an area of memory used by one process to pass information to another. Pipes are designed to collect information on client side and transfer it to a stored procedure, and vice versa.

    On server side, package DBMS_PIPE allows different sessions to communicate over named pipes. You can use the procedures pack_message and send_message to pack a message into a pipe and then send it to another session in the same instance or to a waiting application written with dotConnect for Oracle. To receive incoming message on a server you can use the procedures receive_message and unpack_message to receive and unpack (read) the message.

    On client side use Receive and Send(OraclePipeMessageCollection) methods to handle the data, which is represented as OraclePipeMessageCollection.
