The corresponding function in Oracle is called wm_concat. In MySQL its
called group_concat. I don't believe DB2 or SQL Server have built in
equivalents. The Oracle name isn't really an option ("wm' stands for
I think listagg or string_agg would be the most appropriate names. Oh
and before Oracle had wm_concat, Tom Kyte wrote a function called stragg
that was pretty popular.
