Oracle Database File System (DBFS) Enhancements in Oracle 12c


Oracle 12c includes a really neat feature I first mentioned after Oracle OpenWorld 2012. You can now access your DBFS file systems over HTTP/HTTPS, FTP or WebDAV. I’ve been having a play with it over the last couple of days, so I thought I would write it up here.

This should be quite a welcome addition for those people on platforms other than Linux, who don’t get to use FUSE.

As mentioned in the article, WebDAV support under Windows 7 broken. Even the Oracle manual has a screen shot from Windows XP. I can’t believe Windows 7 has been out all this time and Microsoft have not bothered to fix it…
