DEALLOCATE is used to deallocate a previously prepared SQL statement. If you do not explicitly deallocate a prepared statement, it is deallocated when the session ends.
For more information on prepared statements, see PREPARE.
The SQL standard includes a DEALLOCATE statement, but it is only for use in embedded SQL.
