11g bits and bobs…

I’ve just released an article covering the Miscellaneous New Features section of the OCP upgrade exam. It contains a rather random assortment of stuff including:

  • Online Table Redefinition Enhancements
  • Enhanced Finer Grained Dependency Management
  • DDL With the WAIT Option (DDL_LOCK_TIMEOUT)
  • Invisible Indexes
  • Query Result Cache
  • Adaptive Cursor Sharing
  • Temporary Tablespace Enhancements

I was toying with the idea of putting each section out as separate articles, but they’re all pretty small soundbites, so I thought I would be better to stick with grouping in the OCP syllabus.
