virtual columns in 11g
Oracle has supported stored expressions for many years, in views and function-based indexes. Most commonly, views enable us to store and modularise computations and expressions based on their underlying tables' columns. In more recent versions (since around the 8i timeframe), we have been able to index expressions using function-based indexes. Now, with the release of 11g, Oracle enables us to store expressions directly in the base tables themselves as virtual columns.

A necessary part of a cluster is the cluster interconnect: the private network between the cluster nodes. This component is critical for both reliability and scalability, and configuring it for fault tolerance and capacity is a matter of burning importance for the DBA and his System Administrator (not to mention the end users). One question is, should this be managed by the operating system or by Oracle?

Finding islands are classic problems in PL/SQL. The basic concept is that you have some sort of numbers, like these: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26. The islands problem involves identifying ranges of existing values. For these numbers, the solution will be as follows:

Finding gaps is classic problem in PL/SQL. The basic concept is that you have some sort of numbers (like these: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26), where there’s supposed to be a fixed interval between the entries, but some entries could be missing. The gaps problem involves identifying the ranges of missing values in the sequence. For these numbers, the solution will be as follows:
First, run the following code, to create tab1 table:

I have seen articles that misrepresent a Flex Cluster, even this book Expert Oracle RAC 12c which is written by people who know better (Oracle ACE directors, an OCM, an Oak Table member) gets it wrong, because of a reliance on beta documentation.

In earlier releases, running a shell script from the Scheduler was awkward. Oracle has realized this, and introduced a new job type in 12c that makes it simple.

One often sees requests for test cases, typically when a user has a SQL performance issue. So many users appear to have problems with producing a suitable test case that Uncle Oracle provides routine to automate this. There are no longer any excuses for not providing a test case. Here is an intro to how to do it (code tested on 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168).
