Goal

If an Oracle table which is the base table for a TimesTen cache group has its column structure altered, refreshes and other operations on the cache group may subsequently fail. This Support Note describes how to track DDL changes made to Oracle base tables (referred to as "base tables" in this Note) so that we might know if any changes have been made to those tables. Additionally, this Note discusses how to safely make DDL changes to base tables
