Oracle Component Release Notes

This page lists the main features added to the Oracle Component.

Feature Highlights

Version 2.2.2

New template Integration Oracle to File

A new Integration Template named "Integration Oracle to File (Sqlplus)" has been added.

This Template allows to generate a Flat File using SQL*Plus and provides usually better performances than Standard templates.

Fixed Issues

This version contains also some fixed issues.

Version 2.2.1

Fixed Issues

Some issues have been fixed on Integration Oracle Template.

Version 2.2.0

Addition of datatypes

Some new datatypes have been added, such as BINARY_DOUBLE, BINARY_FLOAT, CHARACTER, CHARACTER VARYING, CHAR VARYING, DECIMAL, DOUBLE PRECISION, NATIONAL CHAR, NATIONAL CHARACTER, NATIONAL CHARACTER VARYING, NATIONAL CHAR VARYING, NCHAR VARYING, NUMERIC, UROWID

Most of them are aliases of existing datatypes.

Version 2.1.0

Addition of datatypes

The INTEGER datatype was missing in Oracle Metadata.

Version 2.0.6

Minor improvements and fixed issues

This version contains some minor improvements and fixed issues, which can be found in the complete changelog.

Version 2.0.5

INTEGRATION Oracle Template

Two new parameters have been added to define Oracle hints to be added to generated select and update statements:

  • Target Update Hint

  • Target Select Hint

Temporary Objects Storage clause

In Oracle Metadata, two new attributes have been added in the "Temporary Objects" tab on a schema.

They allow to specify additional table storage clauses which will be added to the statements generated for temporary objects.

For Oracle, this allows to define for instance a custom tablespace to be used for the temporary objects.

The new attributes are the following:

  • Default Table Storage Clause

  • Default Index Storage Clause

Example of tablespace definition:

Change Data Capture (CDC)

Multiple improvements have been performed to homogenize the usage of Change Data Capture (CDC) in the various Components.

Parameters have been homogenized, so that all Templates should now have the same CDC Parameters, with the same support of features.

Multiple fixes have also been performed to correct CDC issues. Refer to the changelog for the exact list of changes.

Version 2.0.4

JDBC Drivers classes and URLs

Prerequisites \ Stambia DI Designer 2020 (S20.2.0) or higher

Stambia DI Designer 20.2.0 introduces an improvement which allows Components and Modules definition to provide themselves the proper JDBC drivers classes and URLs, for the connection wizard to automatically adapt depending on the Module selected.

This Component has therefore been updated to take into account this improvement and provide the necessary JDBC drivers classes and URLs information.

Version 2.0.3

Sample project

The component example project can now be imported directly in the "New" menu of the Project Explorer.

Version 2.0.2

Maximum VARCHAR2 size

From Oracle V12, the size of VARCHAR2 type fields is no longer limited to 4000 characters.

Define the Oracle Version on your Metadata, in the "database major version".

If this version is less than 12 or empty, the size remains limited to 4000.

If this version is greater than or equal to 12, the size is no longer limited (up to 32,767 characters maximum).

Version 2.0.1

Fix an issue with creation mask for VARCHAR2 and CHAR datatypes

Creation mask for VARCHAR2 and CHAR datatypes should use 'CHAR' as character type when no information is provided.

Now when loading data into Oracle from any source, if there is no character type information defined on the sources Metadata, the columns created using the creation will use "CHAR" as character type instead of specifying an empty value.

For instance: mycolumn VARCHAR2(255 CHAR) instead of mycolumn VARCHAR2(255)

This will make sure the same character type is used when no information is provided instead of relying on the database default value which may vary between databases configuration and which can cause issues.
