ok for the last 18 yrs in using oracle I must have been asleep, "implied database link"
Date: Wed, 17 Feb 2010 15:15:18 -0500
Ok so a co-worker asks a question about an implied database link, i'm like "huh".
so a database link is NOT created in the source database but the userid/password are the same in both source and destination.
take for example
system on db1 and db2 has a password of x12345.
I do a select count(*) from dba_users_at_db2 while connected on db1 and it connects and returns a result set w/o a db link being created.
I've been enlightened again of something new about oracle.
so the question posed is, for a named db link you do "close" it, how do you close an implied link?
