Yesterday I visited AMIS "knowledge center event" about Oracle11g for Developers. They did a compressed version of the session two times earlier, as described here on their blog. Yesterday was an extended version. Almost all new features were discussed and demonstrated with illustrative example scripts.
The features I am most enthusiastic about are (for now):
- flashback data archive
- for updated skip locked
- the removal of the PLS-00436 implementation restriction I mentioned earlier here
Another lesson learned was why you shouldn't improvise by messing up EMP's data during a session like this ...
Anyway, thank you Lucas and Alex for a very interesting evening. And for the pizza and pasta of course :-)
