Oracle Database 12c - New Feature: Identity Columns

An Identity Columns is auto-incremented at the time of insertion just like in SQL Server. Going forward, I think you will not use Oracle Sequence anymore to generate unique values instead use Identity Columns.

Oracle Certified Master (OCM)

Today I received a congratulations email from “Oracle Certification Program” for successfully completing Oracle 10g OCM. Being an OCM is really an accomplishment in a DBA’s career. OCM is the most advanced database credential for an Oracle professional.

I still have to wait for another 2-3 weeks to receive OCM-Kit and to get my profile updated under “Oracle Certified Master Profiles”.
