OOS Utils Beta

We're pleased to announce that OOS Utils, a PL/SQL utility library for Oracle, is now available in beta our Github page: https://github.com/OraOpenSource/oos-utils

Before its initial release we'll blog about some of the neat features and how they can help with your development. 

A few things to note:

  • The code is still in beta. As such things may change, methods may be moved, etc
  • If you have any feedback, suggestions, questions, etc please leave a note on the project's issue's page.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and feedback so far!

OOS Utilities Package

Just like any other programming language they're some common tools/features that are not offered natively within the Oracle PL/SQL APIs. As such, most developers start compiling a list of these common tools and create their own utility packages or code snippets. 

We're looking to create a master utility package(s), currently called OOS Utils. Before we can do that we need your help! If you have a common snippet of code, procedure, or function that you think will be useful to the entire community, please go to: https://github.com/OraOpenSource/oos-utils/issues and submit a new issue with your suggestion. If you just have an idea but don't have the source code, please submit it anyways and we'll try to add it in.

Hint: If you want to format your code nicely when submitting a recommendation use the following template. 


Note that those are not apostrophes, rather they are backticks (key in the top left of your keyboard).

Once we have enough entries, we'll look at grouping all the suggestions into logical packages and start the development process.

We look forward to your recommendations and can't wait to launch this when it's ready! As always if you want to stay up to date with everything that's going on, please subscribe to our email list.
