  • SQL*Loader, for loading data
  • expdp and exp for exporting data to another database
  • oradebug for use in troubleshooting
  • loadjava and dropjava for loading and unloading Java programs
Packed with information in an easy-to-read format, this valuable resource is ideal for any experienced DBA. Even database programmers who deal with Oracle will truly appreciate having the Oracle Utilities Pocket Reference close at hand.Authored by Sanjay Mishra, a foremost authority on Oracle systems, this convenient and compact guide is focused and to-the-point, eliminating any potential guesswork or difficult memorization.

Mishra gives an Oracle DBA a concise guide to version 10g, the latest Oracle database. The blurb on the back cover refers to a plethora of options with these utilities. Thumbing through the book, you can certainly see this. And who can remember all those, or want to? Hence the reason for the book. The notation is BNF and should be familiar to any unix user. But also very useful in the book are the examples given of common usage of most utilities, with typical results also shown. Sometimes, the quickest way to grasp a usage.
