Practical Oracle 8i - Comments and Corrections


Inevitably there are corrections to be made, and useful comments to be added to any book on the Oracle database. This pages lists the chapters of the book, and the date on which I last added an item.

If there is no date in the 'last update' column, there is nothing on the page.

If you want to contribute anything to this area, send me an email - if I can produce a suitable test case of the issue you describe I will publish a note about it here.

Some of the items published are reports copied from patch set listings of bugs that have been fixed. I have not necessarily read the full bug report, nor tested the exact circumstances under which the bug may occur and how effective the fix is; I am simply reporting the abbreviated comments from the patch set listing. Usually I mention the fix because the item seems to have some bearing on a comment that I may have made in the book. There are many other fixes reported in the same patch set listings and the fact that a fix is mentioned in the patches below does not preclude the possibility that other fixes that have not been mentioned may be of interest or significance. Before taking any action on such fixes, you should at least examine the full text of the bug report made available by Oracle.
