A cursor can contain any query you want, but please read the pl/sql
manual before proceeding your work/class

Prior to 9i there was the issue that PL/SQL used a SQL engine that
lagged the main sql engine in features, so you could only do CASE
statements for example by bypassing the PL/SQL engine (using dynamic
SQL). 9i+, this is not a problem.

Hello, I am doing some multithreading in an MDI app, and I can't seem to get the cursor to stay as an Hourglass. I call: Cursor.Current = cursors.wait at the beginning of my routing, and set it back to cursors.default when the thread ends (using a callback)

Why must a cursor be defined in an open transaction? Obviously there's a good reason, but I can't figure it out. On a high level, what would be involved in allowing a cursor to outlive the transaction that created it? Cursors seem as if they have some nice performance benefits (esp. if you're not using all rows found), but their usefulness drops considerably since you must leave a transaction open. eric

Hello, I was trying to find the information about when and where should I use cursors in DB2, no luck. Maybe you can point me to some article that describes just that (or tell me which page is it in DB2 SQL reference book, if it's there)? Or maybe you can post a short answer here, if there's no dedicated article? Another question would be about scrollable cursors (just found out about their existence) - what performance gains will I...

Can anyone explain me when we use correlated subqueries rather than nested subqueries. Do all the correlated subqueries can be written in nested subqueries form as well ? What are the major conditions that apply whenever we write a correlated subquery and why we go for it ? Please let me know about this as i am not clear which to use when.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
