Data-Bound Collation and Case-Insensitive Database
Our August session offers an introduction to and demonstration of the new Oracle Database 12.2 feature called Data-Bound Collation (DBC), the Oracle implementation of the SQL COLLATE clause. Collation determines how strings are compared. That has a big impact on ordering (sorting) and equality tests between strings.
