General Information
Library Note Morgan's Library Page Footer
The Library is currently in the process of being upgraded from Oracle Database Version 12.1.0.1 to 12.1.0.2. Demos are being upgraded to reflect the new Container paradigm as well as EBR (Edition Based Redefinition) and may contain references to CDBs, PDBs, and other objects you may not be familiar with such as CDB_OBJECTS_AE: Welcome to 12c.

Purpose Allows the database to provide notifications, via AQ, to front-end applications written in Java and Dot Net.
