Example text

With that in mind, consider creating separate tablespaces for tables and indexes for the following reasons: • It allows differing backup and recovery requirements. You may want the flexibility of backing up the indexes at a different frequency than the tables. Or you may choose not to back up indexes because you know that you can re-create them. • If you let the table or index inherit its storage characteristics from the tablespace, when using separate tablespaces, you can tailor storage attributes for objects created within the tablespace.

In this example, the primary key constraint is created separately from the table creation. First, the table is created without any constraint definitions. create table cust( cust_id number ,first_name varchar2(200) ,last_name varchar2(200)); Now a primary key constraint is added. ADD CONSTRAINT statement creates both a primary key constraint and a unique index. Both the constraint and index are named CUST_PK. Use CREATE TABLE to Create a Primary Key Constraint and Index Another common way to create a primary key constraint and index is with the CREATE TABLE statement.

For example, if you wanted to find the value of ACER, you would start at the top root node, then navigate to the branch block that contains a pointer to leaf node blocks with values A-I, and then navigate to the leaf block containing the ROWIDs and values. Notice that the leaf nodes in the B-tree index structure are implemented internally as a doubly linked list (indicated with double-headed arrows at the bottom of the diagram). The linked list allows indexes to efficiently provide the results of queries that have ranges in the WHERE clause, such as: where last name < 'F' This makes it possible for range scanning through the leaf nodes without having to traverse up and down through branch blocks (known as an index range scan).
