Upgrading critical applications can be very hard and one of the biggest problems organizations face is the availability of the application during the update. Because of the global nature of applications nowadays we want to achieve 99.99% uptime. Since Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Edition Based Redefinition is available to solve this issue.

In this session, Patrick Barel will introduce the ideas behind Edition Based Redefinition and how it can be used. He will look at tables, editioning views, cross edition triggers, and how PL/SQL Code can be changed in the different editions.

After this session you will have a basic idea on how Edition Based Redefinition works and how it might help you in your situation.

A live Q+A with Patrick Barel will follow the presentation
