Re: Tx - row lock contention after implementing transaction management in application server

The developer's request looks not reasonable.

It's not a problem of bind value but of application design! The bind value would continue changing if my assumption serves me right.

Anyway, getting the exact bind value of the past time is techinically challenging topic and Oracle provides 2 easy ways for that.

  1. 10046 Trace with level >=4 as Tanel described.
  2. FGA(Fine Grained Auditing)

The important thing is that only proactive approach works, reactive approach would never work.

I have a post related to this(including comments).
