Video : JSON Data Type in Oracle Database 21c

In today’s video we demonstrate the JSON data type, introduced in Oracle database 21c.

The video is based on this article.

It assumes knowledge of existing JSON support in the Oracle database. If you are not familiar with the functionality Oracle have been including in the database since Oracle 12c, you might want to check out these.

The star of today’s video is my sister-in-law Maria Colgan. As if being related to me by marriage is not enough of a claim to fame, she is also the current reigning queen of the Oracle database. Long live the Queen!

Video : Online Conversion of a Non-Partitioned Table to a Partitioned Table in Oracle 12.2 Onward

Today’s video demonstrates the online conversion of a non-partitioned table to a partitioned table. This functionality was introduced in Oracle 12.2.

The examples in the video are taken from this article.

I actually did some rewrites of the article in the process. I noticed a couple of things in it were “less than ideal”. πŸ™‚

The star of today’s video is Roland Smart, who was formerly the VP of Social and Community Marketing at Oracle, which meant he was the boss of the ACE program at the time. He’s since moved on to other marketing-related stuff…

Video : Online Segment Shrink for Tables : Free Unused Space

In today’s video we’ll give a demonstration of how to shrink tables that contain a lot of free space. As I say in the video, this is not something you should do regularly. It’s only necessary if you’ve done some drastic one-off maintenance, like a large data purge maybe.

There are a few articles this relates to.

The star of today’s video is Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman, who is returning to her Oracle roots, but on Azure. πŸ™‚
