This module introduces the new features of Net Services in Oracle.
Oracle networking has significantly evolved from the earliest SQL*Net 1.0 to the Net software. With each new release, Oracle has improved both the functionality and performance of Net. This course assumes that you already have a
basic familiarity with Oracle and Oracle's Net facility. We will concentrate on the new features of Net, the new features to the Oracle
Enterprise Manager (OEM) facility, as well as the new GUI facilities, such as the Net Connection Manager and the connection-pooling feature. When you have completed this course, you should have a firm conceptual grasp of the new features of Network Services
Net as they apply to Oracle.
We will be taking a close look at new Net security features, increased functionality, Net features for distributed and Oracle Parallel Server databases, and the new features of OEM. While this may seem like an overwhelming amount of material, we will take a step-by-step approach to ensure we explain and illustrate each concept thoroughly.
