I was wondering if anyone knows or can explain the file version numbering convention used by Oracle in, for example, their public APIs.

Below is an example:

/* $Header: GMEPAPIS.pls 115.76.115100.7 2006/03/01 08:19:49 skommine ship $ */

This is the public API GME_API_PUB package specification file.

115 looks like it relates to release 11 (this example is taken from an 11.5.10 instance). I have no idea how the other numbers are used or what they mean.

The reason I ask is that I have developed custom packages and would like to use a similar file versioning method. Also I would be interested to know if my custom code should reference the file versions of the Public APIs it is calling. I'm fairly new to writing PL/SQL for apps and I'm interested to know how other members of this forum would do this.

Many Thanks

Your guess is right.
115 (is for 11i 5).76 (version on 11i 5).115100 (branch 11.5.10 on 11i 5).7 (version on the branch 11.5.10).
But this is purely used by Oracle for internal version tracking.
If you want to use for custom package your can have something like 115.0, 115.1, 115.2, etc.
Some products have this branching concept, some not.

Thanks for your answer Vamsi,

I have now read about branching and the version numbering Oracle use now starts to make sense. Smile

I think for the code I have written we only require a single branch as you suggest. So I guess the first version is 115.1 Cool
