A segment is just a thing in the database taking up physical space, such as a table, index, cluster or undo segment. Don't worry about segments.

Tables on the other hand are how all data in a relational database is stored, managed, queried and presented. Asking what a table is in Oracle is rather like asking what an object is in Java, or what a pipe is in plumbing. Received on Wed Sep 17 2008 - 17:17:15 CDT
