Scrollable cursors in Oracle

Does Oracle support the declaration of SCROLL CURSORs? I am interested in using the FETCH ABSOLUTE option.

Yes. I believe server-side scrollable cursors are implemented 9i through the OCI interface. In 8i, client-cached scrollable cursors were implemented in JDBC 2.0, but that feature was not recommended for very large result sets.
