Purpose

This bulletin introduces you to new 10g feature : Oracle Flashback Transaction Query

This feature lets you view changes made by a single transaction, or by all the transactions during a period of time.

Basically it is "Recovering at the Row Level"

Scope

This will help recover the data back into the table that has been accidentally deleted by a user.

This will also help in querying the past state of a table.

Earlier in older versions, where this feature is not available, we needed to restore the backup and then from there extract the information that has been deleted. It was quite cumbersome. But with this feature of "Oracle Flashback Transaction Query" all this will require just a few queries on the same database.

Thus, this feature lets you view changes made by a single transaction, or by all the transactions during a period of time.
