16.3 Priority Groups with DBMS_REPCAT

Priority groups allow you to determine the validity of data based on its value. The priority group conflict resolution technique is most effective for data that has a finite range of possible values, and that goes through this range in a specific order.

16.3.1 About Priority Groups

Consider the products table:

SQL>desc products
Name				 	Null?           Type
 ------------------------------- 	-------- 	----
 PRODUCT_ID				NOT NULL 	NUMBER(9)
 PRODUCT_TYPE				NOT NULL 	NUMBER(6)
 CATALOG_ID				NOT NULL 	VARCHAR2(15)
 DESCRIPTION				NOT NULL 	VARCHAR2(30)
 REV_LEVEL				NOT NULL 	VARCHAR2(15)
 PRODUCTION_DATE			NOT NULL 	DATE
 PRODUCTION_STATUS			NOT NULL 	VARCHAR2(12)
 AUDIT_DATE				NOT NULL 	DATE
 AUDIT_USER				NOT NULL 	VARCHAR2(30)
 GLOBAL_NAME				NOT NULL 	VARCHAR2(20)

The PRODUCTION_STATUS field in this table can only take on certain values: CONCEPT, DEVELOPMENT, BETA, PRODUCTION, and DISCONTINUED. In addition, products must go through this range of values in the order given.

This concept of a sequential range of values is known as a workflow , and priority groups are designed to enforce the rules of a workflow in a replicated environment. Unlike column groups, which pertain to fields in a specific table, you can define a priority group for a specific column, which may appear in one or more tables. Once you define and configure a priority group, you can designate it to resolve update conflicts within a column group. The basic idea is that if a conflict arises, the row with the data corresponding to the higher priority in the workflow "wins."

Use the following programs to create and maintain priority groups:

DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype>
DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY
DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY_<datatype>
DBMS_REPCAT.COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUPS
DBMS_REPCAT.DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUPS
DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY
DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP
DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype>

16.3.2 Creating, Maintaining, and Dropping Priority Groups

DBMS_REPCAT's DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP and DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP procedures allow you to create and drop priority groups. You use the COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure to maintain the comment on the priority group.

16.3.2.1 The DBMS_REPCAT.DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure

The DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure creates a new priority group. The specifications differ for Oracle7 and Oracle8 as follows.

Here is the Oracle7 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    datatype IN VARCHAR2,
    fixed_length IN INTEGER := NULL,
    comment IN VARCHAR2 := NULL,
    sname IN VARCHAR2 := '');

Here is the Oracle8 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    datatype IN VARCHAR2,
    fixed_length IN INTEGER := NULL,
    comment IN VARCHAR2 := NULL);

Parameters are summarized in the following table.

Name

Description

gname

Name of the replication group containing the priority group.

pgroup

Name of the priority group.

datatype

Datatype for the value used in the priority group. Supported datatypes:

  • CHAR

  • NCHAR (Oracle8 only)

  • VARCHAR2

  • NUMBER

  • DATE

  • RAW

fixed_length

Fixed length for values. Used only for datatype CHAR.

comment

Comment.

sname (Oracle7 only)

Not used.

16.3.2.1.1 Exceptions

The DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure may raise the following exceptions:

Name

Number

Description

duplicateprioritygroup

-23335

Priority group pgroup already exists

missingschema

-23306

Schema does not exist

nonmasterdef

-23312

Calling site is not the master definition site

typefailure

-23319

Datatype not supported

16.3.2.1.2 Restrictions

Note the following restrictions on calling DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP:

  • You must call the DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure from the master definition site.

  • You must call GENERATE_REPLICATION_SUPPORT for any object in the replication group for the new priority group to become active.

16.3.2.1.3 Example

Since priority groups are meant to work with a specific range of values, you must specify the datatype of these values when you create the group. Valid datatypes follow:

CHAR
NCHAR (Oracle8 only)
VARCHAR2
NUMBER
DATE
RAW

If the data type is CHAR, then you must also specify the length of the data with the fixed_length parameter. After you create a priority group, you must run DBMS_REPCAT.GENERATE_REPLICATION_SUPPORT for any object in the same replication group to propagate the new priority group to other master sites. (Since priority groups are not associated with a specific object, it does not matter what object you use in the call the GENERATE_REPLICATION_SUPPORT.)

16.3.2.1.4 Creating a priority group for datatype CHAR

This call creates a priority group for a CHAR datatype. For the sake of this example, assume that the range of values is GREEN, YELLOW, RED, and the longest string is six characters long.

	BEGIN
		DBMS_REPCAT.DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP(
				gname		=> 'SPROCKET',
				pgroup		=> 'PG_SIGNAL_COLORS',
				datatype	=> 'CHAR',
				fixed_length	=> 6,
				comment		=> 'PG_SIGNAL_COLORS created '||sysdate);
	END;

16.3.2.1.5 Creating a priority group for datatype VARCHAR

For all other datatypes, the use of the fixed_length parameter does not apply. This statement creates a priority group for use with the PRODUCTION_STATUS field in the PRODUCTS table:

	BEGIN
		DBMS_REPCAT.DEFINE_PRIORITY_GROUP(
			gname		=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup		=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',
			datatype	=> 'VARCHAR',
			comment		=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS created '||sysdate);
	END;

16.3.2.2 The DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure

The DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure lets you drop a priority group that you have defined. The specifications differ for Oracle7 and Oracle8 as follows.

here is the Oracle7 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    sname IN VARCHAR2 := '');

Here is the Oracle8 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2);

Parameters are summarized in the following table.

Name

Description

gname

Name of the replication group containing the priority group

pgroup

Name of the priority group to drop

sname (Oracle7 only)

Not used

WARNING: Do not drop a priority group that you have designated as an UPDATE conflict resolution method for a column group. You must first use DROP_UPDATE_RESOLUTION for the column group. Records in the data dictionary view DBA_REPRESOLUTION indicate if and where the priority group is used. Attempting to drop a priority group that is in use raises the referenced exception.

16.3.2.2.1 Exceptions

The DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure may raise the following exceptions:

Name

Number

Description

missingrepgroup

-23373

Replication group gname does not exist

nonmasterdef

-23312

Calling site is not the master definition site

referenced

-23332

Priority group pgroup is used by existing conflict resolution methods

16.3.2.2.2 Restrictions

You must call DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP from the master definition site.

16.3.2.2.3 Example

You can use DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP as follows to remove a particular priority group from the replication group:

BEGIN
	DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_GROUP(
		gname	=>'SPROCKET',
		pgroup	=>'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS');
END;

16.3.2.3 The DBMS_REPCAT.COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure

The COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure allows you to create or replace the comment for a priority group (as seen in the DBA_REPPRIORITY_GROUP data dictionary view). The specifications for Oracle7 and Oracle8 differ as follows.

Here is the Oracle7 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUP
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    comment IN VARCHAR2,
    sname IN VARCHAR2 := '');

Here is the Oracle8 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUP
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    comment IN VARCHAR2);

Parameters are summarized in the following table.

Name

Description

gname

Name of the replication group containing the priority group

pgroup

Name of the priority group

comment

Comment

sname (Oracle7 only)

Not used

16.3.2.3.1 Exceptions

The COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUP procedure may raise the following exceptions:

Name

Number

Description

missingprioritygroup

-23336

Priority group pgroup does not exist

missingrepgroup

-23373

Replication group gname does not exist

nonmasterdef

-23312

Calling site is not the master definition site

16.3.2.3.2 Restrictions

You must call COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUP from the master definition site.

16.3.2.3.3 Example

The following illustrates how you can replace the comment for the PG_SIGNAL_COLORS priority group:

	BEGIN
		DBMS_REPCAT.COMMENT_ON_PRIORITY_GROUP(
			gname	=> 'SPROCKET',
		comment => 'Valid values are GREEN, YELLOW, and RED');
	END;

16.3.3 Creating and Maintaining Priorities Within a Priority Group

The next step after creating a priority group is to add priorities to it. This task entails specifying every possible value for the data in the priority group, and assigning a priority to each value.

For example, recall the PRODUCTION_STATUS field we described earlier, which has this range of five possible values:

  1. CONCEPT

  2. DEVELOPMENT

  3. BETA

  4. PRODUCTION

  5. DISCONTINUED

We want to resolve conflicts for this data by accepting the data that is furthest in the production cycle. If a conflict arises in which one update has PRODUCTION_STATUS set to "BETA," and another update has it set to "PRODUCTION," we would take the data from the latter update.

The examples in the following sections illustrate exactly how to implement this priority group. We will show the following packages:

DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype>
DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY
DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY_<datatype>
DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY
DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype>

NOTE: Each of the procedures containing the <datatype> suffix actually has five different versions in Oracle7, one for each of the datatypes CHAR, VARCHAR2, NUMBER, RAW, and DATE. Oracle8 adds support for two more datatypes: NCHAR and NVARCHAR2. The usage of each of these packages is identical. Most of the examples in the following sections will use the VARCHAR2 version of these packages.

16.3.3.1 The DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype> procedure

The ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype> procedure adds a member (of the specified datatype) to an existing priority group. The specifications differ for Oracle7 and Oracle8 as follows.

Here is the Oracle7 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype>
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    value IN {CHAR|VARCHAR2|NUMBER|DATE|RAW,
    priority IN NUMBER,
    sname IN VARCHAR2 := '');

Here is the Oracle8 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype>
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    value IN {CHAR|NCHAR|VARCHAR2|NUMBER|DATE|RAW,
    priority IN NUMBER)

In these specifications, <datatype> can be any of the following, and value can be any of these types:

CHAR
VARCHAR2
NUMBER
DATE
RAW
NCHAR (Oracle8 only)
NVARCHAR2 (Oracle8 only)

Parameters are summarized in the following table.

Name

Description

gname

Name of the replication group to which priority group pgroup belongs

pgroup

Priority group to which new value and priority are being added

value

Literal value that is being assigned added to pgroup

priority

Priority designated to value

sname (Oracle7 only)

Not used

16.3.3.1.1 Exceptions

This procedure may raise the following exceptions:

Name

Number

Description

duplicatepriority

-23335

Another value is already designated with priority priority

duplicatevalue

-23338

Value is already in the priority group pgroup

missingprioritygroup

-23336

Priority group pgroup does not exist

missingrepgroup

-23373

Replication group gname does not exist

nonmasterdef

-23312

Calling site is not the master definition site

typefailure

-23319

Datatype of value is not the same as the datatype for priority group pgroup

16.3.3.1.2 Restrictions

Note the following restrictions on calling ADD_PRIORITY_ <datatype>:

  • The new value must be unique within the priority group.

  • The new priority must be unique within the priority group.

  • ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype> must be called from the master definition site.

16.3.3.1.3 Example

To associate priorities with each of the five possible values of PRODUCTION_STATUS, we must make five calls to ADD_PRIORITY_VARCHAR2. After making these calls and a call to DBMS_REPCAT.GENERATE_REPLICATION_SUPPORT, the column group is completely configured.

	BEGIN
		DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_VARCHAR2(
		    gname	=> 'SPROCKET',
		    pgroup	=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',

                    value	=> 'CONCEPT',
		    priority    => 10);

		DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_VARCHAR2(
			gname	=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup	=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',

			value	=> 'DEVELOPMENT',
			priority=> 20);

		DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_VARCHAR2(
			gname	=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup	=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',

			value	=> 'BETA',
			priority=> 30);

		DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_VARCHAR2(
			gname	=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup	=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',

			value	=> 'PRODUCTION',
			priority=> 40);

		DBMS_REPCAT.ADD_PRIORITY_VARCHAR2(
			gname	=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup	=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',

			value	=> 'DISCONTINUED',
			priority=> 50);
	END;

TIP: It is a good idea to number priorities in multiples of 10 or more so that you can easily add new priority values later as requirements change.

16.3.3.2 The DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY procedure

The ALTER_PRIORITY procedure lets you change the priority associated with a specific value in a priority group. The specifications differ for Oracle7 and Oracle8 as follows.

Here is the Oracle7 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    old_priority IN NUMBER,
    new_priority IN NUMBER,
    sname IN VARCHAR2 := '');

Here is the Oracle8 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY
   (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
    old_priority IN NUMBER,
    new_priority IN NUMBER)

Parameters are summarized in the following table.

Name

Description

gname

Name of the replication group to which priority group pgroup belongs

pgroup

Name of the priority group whose priority is being altered

old_priority

pgroup's previous priority value

Value was not registered (with a call to ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype>

nonmasterdef

-23312

Calling site is not the master definition site

16.3.3.2.2 Restrictions

Note the following restrictions on calling ALTER_PRIORITY:

  • You must call the ALTER_PRIORITY procedure from the master definition site.

  • The new priority must be unique within the priority group.

16.3.3.2.3 Examples

Suppose that our requirements change such that we want the PRODUCTION_STATUS value DEVELOPMENT to have higher priority than BETA. We can accomplish this by changing the priority associated with DEVELOPMENT from 30 to 45.

	BEGIN
		DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY(
			gname		=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup		=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',
			old_priority	=> 30,
			new_priority	=> 45);
	END;

As with the call to ADD_PRIORITY_<datatype>, this change takes effect after the next call to DBMS_REPCAT.GENERATE_REPLICATION_SUPPORT.

16.3.3.3 The DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY_<datatype> procedure

The ALTER_PRIORITY_<datatype> procedures let you alter the data value associated with a specific priority for a priority group. The specifications differ for Oracle7 and Oracle8 as follows.

Here is the Oracle7 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY_<datatype>
   (gname     IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup    IN VARCHAR2,
    old_value IN {CHAR|VARCHAR2|NUMBER|DATE|RAW},
    new_value IN {CHAR|VARCHAR2|NUMBER|DATE|RAW},
    sname     IN VARCHAR2 := '');

Here is the Oracle8 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY_<datatype>
   (gname     IN VARCHAR2 := '',
    pgroup    IN VARCHAR2,
    old_value IN {CHAR|NCHAR|VARCHAR2|NUMBER|DATE|RAW},
    new_value IN {CHAR|NCHAR|VARCHAR2|NUMBER|DATE|RAW});

<datatype> can be one of the following, and value and old_value can be any of these types:

CHAR
VARCHAR2
NUMBER
DATE
RAW
NCHAR (Oracle8 only)
NVARCHAR2 (Oracle8 only)

Parameters are summarized in the following table.

Name

Description

gname

Name of the replication group to which priority group pgroup belongs

pgroup

Name of the priority group whose priority is being altered

old_value

Current value of the priority group member

new_value

nonmasterdef

-23312

Calling site is not the master definition site

16.3.3.3.2 Restrictions

Note the following restrictions on calling ALTER_PRIORITY_<datatype>:

  • You must call the ALTER_PRIORITY_<datatype> procedure from the master definition site.

  • The new priority must be unique within the priority group.

16.3.3.3.3 Example

Suppose that we want to change the data value associated with priority 50 from DISCONTINUED to OBSOLETE. We would make the following call:

	BEGIN
		DBMS_REPCAT.ALTER_PRIORITY_VARCHAR2(
			gname		=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup		=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',
			old_value	=> 'DISCONTINUED',
			new_value	=> 'OBSOLETE');
	END;

This call would take effect after the next call to GENERATE_REPLICATION_SUPPORT for an object in the SPROCKET replication group.

16.3.4 Dropping Priorities from a Priority Group

The DROP_PRIORITY and DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype> remove values from a priority group. You can specify the value to be removed by priority (with DROP_PRIORITY) or by data value (with DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype>).

16.3.4.1 The DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY procedure

The DROP_PRIORITY procedure removes a value from a priority group. In this version of the procedure, you must specify the value by priority. The specifications differ for Oracle7 and Oracle 8 as follows.

Here is the Oracle7 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY
  (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
   pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
   priority_num IN NUMBER,
   sname IN VARCHAR2 := '');

Here is the Oracle8 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY
  (gname IN VARCHAR2 := '',
   pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
   priority_num IN NUMBER);

Parameters are summarized in the following table.

Name

Description

gname

Name of the replication group to which priority group pgroup belongs

pgroup

-23312

Calling site is not the master definition site.

16.3.4.1.2 Restrictions

You must call the DROP_PRIORITY procedure from the master definition site.

16.3.4.1.3 Example

In the following example, we drop the member of the PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS priority group whose priority is 50:

	BEGIN
		DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY(
			gname		=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup		=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',
			priority	=> 50);
	END;

This change takes effect the next time we run DBMS_REPCAT.GENERATE_REPLICATION_SUPPORT for an object in the SPROCKET replication group.

16.3.4.2 The DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype> procedure

The DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype> procedure removes a value from a priority group. In this version of the procedure, you can specify the value by data value. The specifications differ for Oracle7 and Oracle 8 as follows.

Here is the Oracle7 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype>
	(gname  IN VARCHAR2 := '',
	 pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
	 value  IN {CHAR|VARCHAR2|NUMBER|DATE|RAW},
	 sname  IN VARCHAR2 := '');

Here is the Oracle8 specification:

PROCEDURE DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype>
	(name   IN VARCHAR2 := '',
	 pgroup IN VARCHAR2,
	 value  IN {CHAR|NCHAR|VARCHAR2|NUMBER|DATE|RAW},
	 sname  IN VARCHAR2 := '');

<datatype> can be any of the following, and value can be any of these types:

CHAR
VARCHAR2
NUMBER
DATE

missingrepgroup

-23373

Replication group gname does not exist

nonmasterdef

-23312

Calling site is not the master definition site

paramtype

-23325

Datatype of value is not the same as the datatype for priority group pgroup

16.3.4.2.2 Restrictions

You must call DROP_PRIORITY_<datatype> from the master definition site.

16.3.4.2.3 Example

You can specify the member to be dropped by its data value rather than its priority (as was done with DROP_PRIORITY). In the following example, we drop the member of the PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS priority group whose value is CONCEPT:

	BEGIN
		DBMS_REPCAT.DROP_PRIORITY_VARCHAR2(
			gname	=> 'SPROCKET',
			pgroup	=> 'PG_PRODUCTION_STATUS',
			value	=> 'CONCEPT');
	END;

As with DROP_PRIORITY, this change takes effect after DBMS_REPCAT.GENERATE_REPLICATION_SUPPORT has been run for any object in the replication group.
