What aspects / features of packages were the key issues?
Unfortunately we didn't get too far into it because the webinar was
about Postgres specifically. That said, I have been doing some followup.
Here is some of it:
o break the dependency chain (no cascading invalidations when you
install a new package body -- if you have procedures that call
procedures -- compiling one will invalidate your database)
o support encapsulation -- I will be allowed to write MODULAR, easy to
understand code -- rather then MONOLITHIC, non-understandable procedures
o increase my namespace measurably. package names have to be unique in a
schema, but I can have many procedures across packages with the same
name without colliding
o support overloading
o support session variables when you need them
o promote overall good coding techniques, stuff that lets you write code
that is modular, understandable, logically grouped together....
Note: I am not arguing the technical merits here. My goal is 100%, how
do we get Oracle folks a true Open Source Oracle alternative.
As I get more from people, I will post.
