prepared for the release of Oracle Database
18c ... the first autonomous database? We are here at the Library. It is

Provides an interface to determine if the in-flight transaction on a now unavailable session committed or not, and if the last call on that session completed or not.
err_server_ahead: the server is ahead, so the transaction is an old transaction and must have already been committed.
err_client_ahead: the client is ahead of the server. This can only happen if the server has been flashbacked or the ltxid is corrupted. The outcome cannot be determined.
Owned by SYS with EXECUTE granted to the DBA role
Lets customer applications and third party application servers determine the transactional status of the last session when that session becomes unavailable
