Scheduler Enhancements in 11g…

The latest article in my OCP revision notes has surfaced:

The detached and lightweight jobs look fine, but I’m not totally happy with the remote external jobs. I don’t think they quite live up to their promise, and they seem like a security issue waiting to happen. I assume Oracle don’t expect you to use remote external jobs if you have grid control, or you will end up with a couple of agents on some servers. 🙂

Quite a glaring omission is the lack of integration of the new features into Enterprise Manager. For many people, if it’s not in Enterprise Manager, it doesn’t exist.

I’m hoping a few loose ends will get tied up in 11g Release 2.
