Re: Upgrading from Oracle Database 9i to 10g: What to expect from the Optimizer

Thanks for sharing this white paper. This comes out only now, while 10g has
been around for 2 years. While the contents of the paper are pretty good and
definitely useful for customers who are planning to upgrade, for others who
took the step to upgrade earlier had to go through several headaches. I've
seen upgrade projects resort to setting o_f_e = 9.2.0 as in certain cases
modifying the SQL was not an option. optimizer_secure_view_merging is an
interesting feature, had I known about this earlier, I guess it would have
saved some grief for a project that I was involved.

Regards,
Arul
