Symptoms


FULL OUTER JOIN fails with ORA-00904 error when used on views that access PL/SQL objects that are not in the current users schema

ERROR at line 2:
ORA-00904: "GET_DESCRIPTION": invalid identifier

The same query works perfect if the FULL OUTER JOIN is replaced with LEFT OUTER JOIN or RIGHT OUTER JOIN.

Testcase :

1) Connect as obj_owner and create the needed pl/sql function, sample table/view ..
