[Quoted] [Quoted] That would be very useful also in 7.x versions. Do you think that it is possible somehow to get both V$SESSION_LONGOP table and the new dbms_application_info package into 7.2 database. We have also this 8.0 version but we can't use that version yet because our client is not ready for it (and it'll take years until they are). So it would be used only during developing of programs.
