what do u mean by data access path in oracle?
what does this statement mean?
"Data access paths are implemented in Oracle using indexes. Indexinghelps to predefine the most common access paths for querying the database.
These indexes decrease the time it takes to search for data in a table by using
a number of data structures, such as B-trees, bitmaps, and so on"

First don't use IM speak.
Have a look at OraFAQ Forum Guide, there is a section about this.

what do u mean by data access path in oracle?

The way Oracle use to access the data: full table scan, index range scan, access by rowid...

The sentence is not entirely true. Access path may not involved any index.
When you quote something you MUST say from what you quote and if possible post an url.
