New and Improved Methods for Administering Your Database - from Howard Horowitz, HGH
Good overview of some of the new features coming with Oracle 10g.

November 2004
Change Data Capture in Oracle 10g - from Jack Raitto, CDC Development Manager, Oracle Corporation
Sometimes you need to know what information has been changed in your database. It may be for reports or as a part of an elaborate ETL process. If the database wasn't designed with this in mind, you may have to develop a custom solution. This can be a costly and error-prone process including triggers and big inefficient queries. The alternative is to use Oracle's 9i feature - Change Data Capture (CDC). This is a nice solution and completely independent from the rest of the database design.

June 2004
Oracle 10g Feature: RMAN Incrementally Updated Backups - from Dave Anderson, SkillBuilders

Using 10046 trace data to resolve Oracle performance issues - A review of three case studies (Paper, Presentation) - from Jeff Holt and Gary Goodman, Hotsos Enterprises, Ltd.
