| Jonathan, sorry for being unclear. The change is with the "values" form,
| as in the mentioned MOS document:
I see that Charles has already responded with a link to Christian's article
about append and append_values.
I'm always a little torn about assigning blame to Oracle when someone does something that they're not supposed to, and then find that it breaks. I can imagine a sequence of events like this at Oracle Corp::
- we need to allow direct path insert for values - let's make the append hint work, no-one will be using it the wrong way
- complaints of bugs pop up from people who have been using the append hint incorrectly in the past
- Oracle introduces append_values for people who really need to append values so that they don't have to run two lines of code for one hint.depending on the circumstances where it's used.
