Application Development on Oracle Database: A Year-Long CodeTalk Series
Simplifying Effective Date Range Queries with Temporal Validity
Chris Saxon and Stew Ashton, Oracle Corporation
*hosted by IOUG
Storing changes to data over time is a common requirement. For example, many businesses like to keep a historic record of customer address changes or product price updates. Data warehouse developers frequently need to store history in slowly changing dimensions.
Typically these requirements are implemented by adding effective "from" and "to" date columns to tables. This requires developers to write convoluted select statements to find the rows active at a given point in time. This is error-prone and open to interpretation by developers, making applications harder to maintain.
Introduced in 12c, temporal validity provides a standard way to write queries using effective date ranges. Implementing this helps improve developer productivity by simplifying SQL and providing a consistent method for managing time series data. Watch this session to see how you can easily adopt this on your 12c databases.
