DBA role

P: n/a
I am a developer contracted to a large utility company. This is my
first job out of university. I have been working in IT for 2 years
now. My work involves application development, maintenance, and
support, Business Objects reporting and universe development. The DBA
where I work will not give me the DBA role in the production instance,
although I have the DBA role in the development instance. Is this
reasonable, or is he being a control junkie?

reasonable

you probably really don't need the DBA role in the development instance,
unless you're doing DBA stuff

since Oracle 6, the DBA role probably really should not be used very much --
it's too broad in the privileges it groups together. generally it's a better
idea to have some more tailored roles created that match up better with what
different developers actually need to be able to do

Reasonable!
You've offered no "proof" that you required the DBA role.
Developer <> DBA.
