    Does anyone have any idea of when the Oracle8i will be retired? Oracle cannot give me any approximate answer. I thought maybe some of the members may have been around long enough to make an educated guess. I am studying for the exams and would'nt want to get caught between 8i and 9i........any guidance?

    Hi.

    They've only just retired the Oracle8 exams and it's been something like 3 years since 8i was first released. It's a complete guess, but I think you're safe for more than a year yet.

    I would suggest doing the 8i exam then upgrading since there will be a continued demand for 8i skills for some time yet.

    Good luck!

    Which of the following command is used for tuning the Oracle 10i database:

    A) ALTER SYSTEM GET BETTER;
    B) ALTER DATABSE GET TUNED ON COMMIT;
    C) ALTER DATABASE TUNE YOURSELF;
    D) ALTER SYSTEM GET BETTER CONFIRM BY EMAIL;

    That's a trick question!

    There is no such statement since commands in 10i are done using a neural interface. All you have to do is think,

    "Wouldn't it be nice if the database was a bit faster!"

    and Oracle will use UTL_SMTP to send an email to your hardware vendor requesting another node to be added to your Oracle Fast Mother (OFM)!

    OFM, formerly known as Real Application Clusters (RAC), formerly known as Oracle Parallel Server (OPS)

    Do I get a pin or a Jacket?
