How to Upgrade an Oracle-based Application without Downtime

One of most common reasons IT departments avoid database development is the belief that an application upgrade in the database causes downtime. However, nothing can be further from the truth. On the contrary, Oracle Database provides one of the most bullet proof ways to upgrade an application without any downtime: Edition Based Redefinition (EBR)

EBR is a powerful and fascinating feature of Oracle (added in version 11.2), that enables application upgrades with zero downtime, while the application is actively used and operational.

Attend the free webinar by Oren Nakdimon on February 16th to learn how to use EBR, see many live examples, and get tips from real-life experience in a production site using EBR extensively.

The webinar is free but space is limited.

Version Control for PL/SQL

Let's get this straight:

  • It is possible to put PL/SQL in proper version control. 
  • It is possible to have developers work on the same logical code unit (package, procedure, function etc...) at the same time without co-ordinating first. 
  • It is possible to merge these changes at a later time automatically. 
  • It is possible to eliminate all the errors resulting from manual preparation of deployment scripts. 
  • It is possible to build an automated continuous delivery pipeline for PL/SQL.
