Esoteric Oracle

by avia In reply to Develop generics with ANY ...

Scott Stephens always manages to divulge the esoteric capabilities of the Oracle ORDBMS. I feel that it's nice to know about these capabilities, but I can't see a use for the things described in this week's newsletter, in our current development projects at my place of work. In any case, I am happily filing them away for possible, future use. Thank you, Scott.

I'm looking CLOSELY at it!

I have a whole category of data that is dying for ANYDATA! I can't wait to try it out... But I needed to know if it's available on 8i; I'm assuming 9i and following.

it is 9i only

by swstephe In reply to I'm looking CLOSELY at it ...

Sorry, the ANYDATA datatype is only available in 9i and up. Deep inside the catalog.sql, there is also a note about how *true* generics, (similar to C++ templates), are used internally, but are undocumented and unsupported for the general public, so that is even beyond 10g.
