I was aware that up to Oracle 11g, a PL/SQL program wasn’t allowed use an associative array in a SQL statement. This is what happens when I try to do it.
SQL> drop table test_array purge; Table dropped. SQL> create table test_array as 2 select level num_col from dual 3 connect by level <= 10; Table created. SQL> select * from test_array; NUM_COL ---------- 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 10 (more...)
There seems to me to be a relatively simple choice.
Either you except that the Oracle Optimizer has a wealth of complicated strategies and, in this complex effort to get the best executions it can, will inevitably either get it wrong sometimes (or take some extra executions to realise it’s wrong).
Or you stick your head in the sand and raise a bug for every unexpected poor execution or plan flip.
But let’s say that (more...)
Just checked Tim’s latest post and guess what, Oracle database 12c’s latest release, 188.8.131.52 is available now for download. It is available as an OTN download as well as from E-Delivery. Seems like that there is no documentation update available yet as the New Features guide still doesn’t have 184.108.40.206 included in it. But I am sure that it’s coming soon!
So grab your copy now and happy downloads :=).
Yesterday, Oracle released a new critical patch update (CPU Jul 2014) for July 2014. This CPU contains fixes for 5 database vulnerabilities. The most critical one, CVE-2013-3751, has a base score of 9.0 and affects Oracle 12.1 only. The same issue was already fixed for Oracle 11.2 in July 2013 (CPU Jul 2013).
After a short research on the web (google and twitter, less than 5 minutes) I found an (more...)
However when I went to start things up, ASM wasn't starting up, giving me these errors:

A week ago, Oracle released Oracle SOA Suite 12c. In this blog I will show how easy it is to create a Standalone-server environment for Oracle Event Processing (OEP) 12c.
The major new features of Oracle Event Processing 12 are the new integrated development environment based on Jdeveloper and the Event Delivery Network (EDN) event adapter nodes which provide that tight integration at runtime to SOA Suite composites and all other SOA components supporting the (more...)
A week ago, Oracle released Oracle SOA Suite 12c. In this blog I will show how easy it is to create a SOA Suite development environment.
The Oracle SOA Suite 12c Quick Start distributions allow you to quickly install a development or evaluation environment on a single host computer. It only takes a couple of minutes to set it up.
Before starting the installation, make sure that you have a working Java Development (more...)
Well, this blog posting is not about explaining the (more...)
This was promising, so I give it a short try for Oracle ADF applications. For this blog I use the Summit ADF application, delivered by Oracle, but I have tried with our own application too. Test is done in JDeveloper 12.1.2.
After the download there are some easy steps (more...)
A quick fly through the options for conditional uniqueness.
Requirement #1: I want uniqueness on a column but only under certain conditions.
For example, I have an active flag and I want to make sure there is only one active record for a particular attribute but there can be many inactive rows.
create table t1 (col1 number not null ,col2 varchar2(24) not null ,is_active number(1) not null ,constraint pk_t1 primary key (col1) ,constraint (more...)
Just a quick shout-out , in case you haven’t heard about the news before, Enterprise Manager is now available with its 4th release now. You can download it from OTN along with the documentation. Additionally, you can watch and learn about the latest features from the EM’s YouTube Channel and also from OLL’s YouTube Channel. Tim Hall’s installation articles for the same are just too good to be missed. Last but certainly not the least, (more...)
