RE: Undocumented data dictionary views

Boivin,
I think this is very different types of things.
One is C code, which is compiled, and no one have access to it source. 
Then Oracle can introduce hidden parameters, which affect code behaviour.
Second - SQL code, which can be accessed normally. And easily dropped then 
code goes to production. Is there any usefulness from view, which give 
information about unrealized features?

Just curious.  Someone asked about an undocumented view that lists all the
errors and I followed the train of thought.

Oracle puts parameters that are in progress, or about to be desupported as
undocumented parameters.  Some of them are used by Technical Support I
think.

I was wondering if they do the same thing with data dictionary views, or 
if
that is pretty much fixed and they introduce them all suddenly when a new
version is released.

They do introduce new views from version to version, I was thinking maybe
precursors of those might exist in the previous version.

Doesn't sound like it.

It makes sense that they wouldn't -- after all, I imagine there is a
(slight) performance hit involved in maintaining data dictionary views.
They probably lump them all into the next version's beta and test them 
there
through their partners.

I know about the base tables and X$ tables.

Pat.
