Oracle holiday wish list

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

Earlier this week we sent out a note asking Oracle end users for their holiday wish lists. We got a wide range of responses, including requests for big box items like Exadata all the way down to detailed features such as schema-level privileges. How about you, what are you hoping out of Oracle in the next year? Comment here or email us at editor@searchoracle.com. Here are some responses:

Oracle becomes OpenSource – maybe Santa has the power to deliver…

1. Oracle 11g XE for 64-bit Windows!
2. Give me back the “old” Java-based “Enterprise Console Manager.”

Exadata !!!

APEX for my Oracle DB reporting.

Schema-level privileges.  Come on, it’s been decades.
Also how about: Alter username rename to new_username.

Ironically, I do not have a Christmas wish list for Oracle this year.  While a bit on the pricey side, I must say that the Oracle relational database software, which is what we primarily use and are running Oracle11g Release 2 on Linux and Solaris, has been very stable, scalable, and performs reasonably well.  I am pleased with Oracle’s quarterly critical patch update schedule and process, and have come to depend on Oracle as the workhorse database engine alongside SQL Server 2008 R2 and MySQL.  So I guess my only wish is that Oracle continue to advance and improve the relational database product line and doesn’t break anything in the process.
