RE: Rollback Schema Changes

Thanks Gus.

I have and actually went to the same page you provided and wanted to avoid that 
due to cost.

Another option I had in mind was to create a cold backup, shutdown abort, copy 
backup to current destination, startup database.

Database itself will probably not exceed 50GB, at least that's what I am told 
at the moment.

We have a requirement to automate or provide control to developers to rollback 
all schema changes.

For example:  starting from a base line - test A performed - rollback to 
baseline - test B performed - rollback to baseline - test C performed - 
rollback to baseline.

There can be hundreds of tests and this needs to be easily managed and 
automated from the application.

Would datapump and/or flashback database work for this type of regression 
testing?

Thanks for your ideas.
