Is Oracle8 much more performant than Oracle7?
If yes in which area particularly?
Well, I am currently in the design phase of a database which I have to
store large graphic files (500 Mb to 2.1 Gb). I'm currently
contemplating storing them in the database using CLOB or NLOB however,
I'm worried if there is going to be a performance hit (as the graphic
LOB has to be written onto disk first before it is able to be processed
by the graphic application. Anyone here who has done this before and
can share your experiences and thoughts? Any tips at all will be
