An OCI program performing an array insert with OCI_BATCH_ERRORS and returna the newly inserted values back to the OCI program.
This works fine as long no constraint violation occurs - either using dynamic bind or default bind.
If a constraint violation occurs the records are still inserted but the lastest record is not returned to the OCI program.
