There was something of a storm on Twitter on 12-Oct-2016. Twitter is a nice medium for, say, showing a photo to your followers or referring them to an interesting article. But it is shockingly awful for sustaining a debate. The character limit is a huge pain; and the inability to support a threaded discussion is an even greater problem. Nevertheless, I don’t have enough self-discipline to hold back when I read something with which I violently disagree—especially when it's about PL/SQL! The storm that I’m referring to concerned the advisability of issuing commit from database PL/SQL.
To make matters worse, the storm broke when I was on vacation in China. I was finally driven to write this: All this is starting to ruin my holiday. I’ll ensure [soon] that my “Why Use PL/SQL?” paper provides the required informed clarity on this.
Naturally, it took me a lot, lot longer than I wanted before I could make time to write this post. I've done so now. HERE it is.
