In my previous post I mentioned the problem with compiling a program unit that calls a database function with result cache.
Like I wrote in that post, the problem exists in the PL/SQL Client version.
There’s a patch available to update the PL/SQL client: Oracle Database Server Version 188.8.131.52 Patch 33.
This is a database patch, but it can also be applied to the middleware home.
After applying the patch, the program unit compiles…Problem solved!
So, go and start using Result cache!
Result cache… a very cool feature in the 11g database.
If you don’t know it, this is a must read: Pl/SQL function result cache in 11g
But also watch out with it in Forms 11g.
It seems there’s a bug.
When compiling a program unit that calls a function with result cache in forms, you’ll get a compile error, which look likes this:
Error 801 at line 7, column 2: internal error[*** ASSERT at file pdw1.c, line 4061; PSDGON missing. Can’t get object number; XNSPC1PTEST__P[7,2]
This is logged on “My Oracle Support” as a bug.
It’s not a forms bug, but a PL/SQL Client bug.
And this “bad” version of the PL/SQL client is used in forms11g(or in general FMW11g).
It works with older and newer versions of the PL/SQL Client(Forms 10g + function result cache should work).
Hopefully there’s a patch soon, so that everybody can use result cache ;-)
