Union All MV

In an article I wrote last week about Bloom filters disappearing as you changed a SELECT to a (conventional) INSERT/SELECT I suggested using the subquery_pruning() hint to make the optimizer fall back to an older strategy of partition pruning. My example showed this working with a range partitioned table but one of the readers reported a problem when trying to apply the strategy to a composite range/hash partitioned table and followed this up with an (more...)

Manually downloading Java For Use With Webupd8’s apt-get Package

Oracle Java is one of the biggest problems in life. That’s just a fact. Half of it is the fact that you have to download it directly from Oracle each time, quarter of it is the almost daily updates (compounded by the first problem), and the remainder is dealing with the fact that the first problem

Experiences with moving to multitenant in 12.1.0.2

Lately I’ve been upgrading our 11g Standard Edition databases in test environments to 12c Enterprise Edition and also plugging them in to a multitenant container database.
It’s a new technology for Oracle, but I was still quite surprised about the number of issues I faced when trying to plug in an existing non-CDB database. After resolving all these issues it has been quite painless process since then.
