Abstract - Flashback:
We have all heard the term "adrenalin rush". It comes about 3 seconds after you press the Commit button and you realise that you probably needed to have a WHERE clause on that "delete all rows from the SALES table" SQL statement. Or it might come just after you run "drop table" on the Production database, when you were just so sure that you were logged onto the Test system. This session will discuss how you can use the FLASHBACK features in 10g and 11g to overcome this uniquely human condition
