    Source Control for Oracle Git Beta

    • Working folder “source control” system added. This links a folder on disk to Source Control for Oracle allowing full control of source control operation via any external tool
    • Git can now link to a completely empty repo
    • Git can now link to the root folder even if that contains any or all of, .gitignore and .gitattributes
    • Faster linking to git as we now perform one clone to a temporary location and subsequent “clones” are copies of that initial clone – this is cleared up on process exit
    • If git authentication failed the user was never prompted to re-enter credentials
    • During linking there is now documentation on how to use a github “personal access token” when you have two-factor authentication turned on
    • String literals with different newlines are now no longer different after committing to git (git by default “fixes” newlines to be consistent so now r\n is equivalent to \n)
    • Forced garbage collection to reduce memory usage, this would appear as an apparent memory leak using the tool
    • Selecting “Select referenced objects” now much quicker
    • Speed of UI now faster for large schemas when locking was enabled
    • Dendencies calculation now happens on a background thread allowing much faster selecting objects
    • Selecting all on lockable objects now much faster
    • Linking to Subversion is now faster
    • Advanced search boxes on “Get latest”, “Check in” and “Lockables”
      • Previously a search term would match either the schema name or the object name now the search box is a space separated series of terms

    Just a string in the owner or object name

    Multiple – contains both test AND view
    test view


    Positive (default)

    Terms – does the value in the column contain the given word
    locked: =returns all locked objects by anyone
    locked:(me) =just your own locked objects

    And any combination of the above
    type:view -type:log test schema:hr
    = views or materialized views but not materialized view logs in schemas containing hr with names containing test

    Please note that the final release with Git support will be v3 of Source Control for Oracle. To make sure you are entitled to get it for free please ensure your “Support & upgrades” are up-to-date

    More bug fixes merged into Git Beta release that will also be released in the upcoming release of Source Control for Oracle

    • Grants no longer occassionally created before objects when scripting changes (OC-615)
    • Passwords with special characters now escaped correctly (OSC-461)
    • Number of objects selected is now correct (OSC-450)
    • Possible fix for null object during population (OC-699)
    • Speed of UI is now much quicker on all source control tabs when dealing with many thousands of objects
