Comments for DDL With the WAIT Option (DDL_LOCK_TIMEOUT)
Raja said...I have tried out the same in 18.104.22.168. But the ALTER TABLE does not wait for the mentioned seconds but throws error immediately. However, when I try with DROP TABLE, it works. Can you pls. clarify why is it so ?

DDL statement doesn't even error out with ORA-00054, but instead it just hangs indefinitely waiting for DML to complete. DDL_LOCK_TIMEOUT parameter is completely ignored.
