I have one single table in the database that I have been inserting data into. I think it's growing gradually. Is there any easiest and simple way to find out if it is reaching the maximum space allocated to it(e.g. either using dba views or V$ tables or any other easy way)?

Yes, it's possible. You can find how many extents are in use by a table. Check the DBA_Extents and Dba_segments view to get results.
another thing you can do is analyze the table (analyze table xxx compute statistics) and then look in dba_ or all_tables. (select * from all_tables where owner = 'xxx' and table_name = 'yyy').
you will see stats in there about # of rows, blocks, empty blocks, etc.
If you build a table to store these results every time you do an anlyze (insert into... select * from dba_tables where owner = 'xxx' and table_name = 'yyy') then pretty soon you can see how the table changes over time.
hope this helps,
Check http://www.lacroe.com/code_lib/index.html There is a downloadable
script there called "check_daily", it has scritps that will help you monitor
your database on a day to day basis. It also contains scripts to list tables
that are nearing max extents etc..
check it out...
