Re: Synonyms

hi Jousha,

it depends, synonym is just like pointer. I had seen some of the dbas they
discourage use of synonyms because it becomes overload when there are
billions of rows in an object

yes synonyms can be either public or private and they are used for security
of objects for which they are created.

Thanks!
