DDL triggers – interesting results

This question came in on AskTom, yielding a very interesting result when it comes to DDL triggers. To set the scene, I’ll first create a table called T which is just a copy of SCOTT.EMP

Two New Articles: UDEV and Database Triggers…

I’ve recently put a couple of new articles about old subjects on the website. In both cases, the articles were initiated by forum questions, but the explanations became too painful in the format of a forum post so they graduated into articles…

  • UDEV SCSI Rules Configuration In Oracle Linux 5 : For those of you that like to follow my Virtual RAC guides, but don’t like using ASMLib, you can use this article and replace ASMLib with UDEV.
  • Database Triggers Overview : This is really a primer on database triggers. I’ve focussed mostly on simple DML triggers, since this is what the vast majority of trigger-related questions I’m asked relate to. Consider it the “minimum” you should know before you write a database trigger.
