Managing Statement Transparency

The database allows the following standard DML statements to reference remote tables:

Queries including joins, aggregates, subqueries, and SELECT...FOR UPDATE can reference any number of local and remote tables and views. For example, the following query joins information from two remote tables:

SELECT e.empno, e.ename, d.dname 
  FROM scott.emp@sales.division3.example.com e, jward.dept@hq.example.com d 
  WHERE e.deptno = d.deptno; 

In a homogeneous environment, UPDATE, INSERT, DELETE, and LOCK TABLE statements can reference both local and remote tables. No programming is necessary to update remote data. For example, the following statement inserts new rows into the remote table emp in the scott.sales schema by selecting rows from the emp table in the jward schema in the local database:

INSERT INTO scott.emp@sales.division3.example.com 
  SELECT * FROM jward.emp;

Restrictions for Statement Transparency:

Several restrictions apply to statement transparency.
