Re: Bind Variable - Query slow
Date: Fri, 23 Mar 2012 09:18:48 +0000
I've seen this happen before - the culprit was hibernate/JDBC passing in a value as a an NVARCHAR2 instead of a VARCHAR2 - I had to create a functional index (TO_NCHAR) as a workaround.
Have a look in dba_hist_sql_bind_metadata & check what type Oracle thinks the bind variable is.
