So many fresher Oracle DBAs and intermediate Oracle DBAs are searching online Oracle DBA interview Questions but unfortunately they are getting older and theoretical questions about Oracle basics. If you will prepare yourself from those content then you might get trouble to crack technical interview.

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 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199).

The inverted table format can deliver fast and flexible query capabilities, but is not widely used. ADABAS is probably the most successful implementation, but how often do you see that nowadays? Following is a description of how to implement inverted structures within a relational database. All code run on Oracle Database 12c, release 188.8.131.52.

There are three restrictions on indexing and partitioning: a unique index cannot be local non-prefixed; a global non-prefixed index is not possible; a bitmap index cannot be global. Why these limitations? I suspect that they are there to prevent us from doing something idiotic.

I see posts on Oracle related forums about various releases (anything that isn't 11.x or 12.x) being "unsupported". This is wrong. Of course you should upgrade any 9i or 10g databases, but you don't have to.

In this post, I will demonstrate a new feature introduced in 12c : In database archiving. It enables you to archive rows within a table by marking them as invisible. This is accomplshed by means of a hidden column ORA_ARCHIVE_STATE. These invisible rows are not visible to the queries but if needed, can be viewed , by setting a session parameter ROW ARCHIVAL VISIBILITY.
-- Create test user uilm, tablespace ilmtbs
-- Connect as user uilm
-- create and populate test table (5 rows) ilmtab with row archival clause
