Recursive insert is just a figment of your imagination.

What is recursive insert?

Where did you get the phrase "recursive insert" or "recursive SQL insert" from? You can insert data from a recursive query if that is what you mean. Oracle has hierarchical queries using START WITH and CONNECT BY PRIOR and such. Oracle also has hierarchical queries that use recursive sub-query factoring. You can also write recursive functions and procedures. Any of these could be used to insert data.
