Harvinder, I'm a little confused.  The requirements you describe (up to the last sentence) are a classic example of what Global Temporary Tables are suited for.  The last sentence puzzles me since you would only be creating one GTT before deploying the code, not each time the code runs.  Sessions just create their own private data segments upon the first Insert operation.  These segments are visible only to that session (regardless of the schema used to connect to the database) just like if each one had it's own distinctively-named table.  If you could I'd like to see a follow-up post with more information that shed light on your thought process.

Subject: Temporary table


In our application we need to create temporary table for life of a session

and drop it after the session.

we need this table to be session specific ...2 sessions connected as same

schema user should be able to create

table with the same name......

for example user1. connected as scott  create table with name tab1..then

user2 connected as scott should also be

able to create table with name tab1...and we want table tab1 to be dropped

as soon as user1 and user2 will discconnect....

We need to populate this temporary table in particular session and use it to

join with other tables and then drop after the session.....

How can we implement this.......

global temporary table does not allow to be created twice in 1 schema..they

r schema specific.......
