Abstract

As stated in the previous chapter, one of the key challenges in developing multiuser, database-driven applications is to maximize concurrent access but, at the same time, ensure that each user is able to read and modify the data in a consistent fashion. In this chapter, we’re going to take a detailed look at how Oracle achieves multiversion read consistency and what that means to you, the developer. I will also introduce a new term, write consistency, and use it to describe how Oracle works not only in a read environment with read consistency, but also in a mixed read and write environment.
