Ed Has another post in the catpatch.sql series

February 8th, 2005 by Pete

I just saw Edward Stanglers new post titled "New databases may require catpatch" on orablogs. Ed mentions his catpatch.sql series of posts made to his blog a while back. I also mentioned them here. This new post is interesting as what Ed is saying is that if you create a database with the DBCA and use the pre-created database you may need to run catpatch.sql on a new database as the pre-created database files were made with not or later.

Also of interest is the fact as Ed points out that the database template files are simply zip files but with a different file extension (.dfj). This is a useful bit of trivia for anyone interested in internals and undocumented facts about Oracle.

From a security / versioning point of view this is an interesting post from Ed that includes links to other posts of Ed's on similar subjects.
