Video : Multitenant : Running Scripts Against Multiple Pluggable Databases Using

In today’s video we give a quick demonstration of using to run scripts against multiple pluggable databases (PDBs) in a container database (CDB).

The video is based on one section of this article.

You can find loads of information about living with CDBs and PDBs in the following articles and the YouTube playlist linked below.

What is a serverless database?

By Franck Pachot

After reading the×8-larry-ellison-picks-amazons-pocket-again/ paper, I am writing some thoughts about how a database can be serverless and elastic. Of course, a database needs a server to process its data. Serverless doesn’t mean that there are no servers.

Video : Using Podman With Existing Dockerfiles (Oracle Database and ORDS)

Today’s video shows me using some of my existing Docker builds with Podman. Specifically a 19c database container and an Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) container.

For those with an understanding of Docker, it should look really familiar, but it does introduce a twist in the form of a pod.

The video is based on this article.

You can see more information about containers here.

Oracle Linux 8 (OL8) : Vagrant and Docker builds for 19c Database 300w" sizes="(max-width: 230px) 85vw, 230px" />

A couple of days ago I mentioned the certification of Oracle database 19c on Oracle Linux 8 (OL8) with UEK6.

I’ve had a bunch of OL8 articles and builds for a while, but up until now they’ve included warnings to say they weren’t certified. Over the last couple of evenings I’ve made some changes, so I thought I would summarise then here.

The Oracle database museum: running old versions of the Oracle database

All Oracle database professionals know the current versions of the Oracle database (12.2, 18, 19, 20 at the moment of writing), and we also know the pace Oracle corporation keeps is so high that a lot of companies are having a hard time keeping up with the current versions. A prominent one is Oracle corporation itself for their E-Business suite software, where Oracle extended the support for the database for version and for E-Business suite licenses only. But this blog isn’t about bitching about the pace of Oracle support and versions getting desupported.

AWS Certified Database Specialty (DBS-C01)

Here is my feedback after preparing and passing the AWS Database Specialty certification. There are tips about the exam but also some thoughts that came to my mind during the preparation when I had to mind-shift from a multi-purpose database system to purpose-built database services.

Developing Applications with CockroachDB… end-to-end example with SpringBoot, Java, Hibernate, Gradle


Application development frameworks like SpringBoot have done a good job a giving developers a quick start to developing applications with Java. Layering object-relational mapping to SQL to remove proprietary syntax has further simplified the development of database applications.

CockroachDB allows developers to take advantage in the evolution of globally distributed data with a simple SQL interface. But each database can bring it’s own specific syntax and cause developers to hesitate when getting started with a new database.

How do you get started?

Video : Multitenant : Online Move of Datafiles in CDBs and PDBs

Today’s video is a quick look at online datafile moves in container databases (CDBs) and pluggable databases (PDBs).

If you’ve used this functionality in a non-CDB database, it’s going to look familiar, with a PDB-specific gotcha.

These articles discus moving and renaming files.

(this is an answer to Jeff Potter — “3 Reasons I Hate Booleans In Databases”)

I’ll start with the “benchmark” because I like facts.


Here is your test which I ran on less number of rows (because it is not needed and easier to run and share from db<>fiddle) and I’ve run the queries once before in order to warm-up the cache. And I displayed the execution plan to get better understanding about the response time:
