Hmmm, who is incapable of that, I wonder.

The logic is very simple indeed. It is not about whether to be compliant with the law. It is about whether 10g is necessary to be compliant.

Finally we are getting to the point. Audit Vault is an auditing tool provided by Oracle. It is not a necessity for compliance.

BTW, you have been selectively cutting out part of my comments in your replies. With tatics like that you are in no position to talk about morality and the law. Received on Sat Jul 21 2007 - 13:01:12 CDT
