Oracle DBMS_APP_CONT
Version 19.3

General Information
Library Note Morgan's Library Page Header
Which has the higher priority in your organization: Deploying a new database or securing the ones you already have? Looking for a website, and resources, dedicated solely to securing Oracle databases? Check out DBSecWorx.
Purpose Used to provide 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.

All of its functionality with the exception of a single object was split out into a new package named DBMS_APP_CONT_ADMIN and the documentation was partially update to reflect the change but the required docs for DBMS_APP_CONT_ADMIN are missing. Will be opening an SR later this evening. This looks like more of the work of Oracle's Executive VP of Product Renaming.
