The figure illustrates the difference between RESOURCE_VIEW and PATH_VIEW. In a typical tree, RESOURCE_VIEW has only one path. Because many Internet applications need only one URL to access a resource, RESOURCE_VIEW is widely applicable. With PATH_VIEW, you create a link to access the target resource node, which provides two access paths to the target node for faster access.


select path(1) from RESOURCE_VIEW where under_path(res,'/sys',1); 

displays one path to the resource:


PATH_VIEW Example:

select path from PATH_VIEW;

displays all paths to the resource:
