“Bharath Terala, Oracle database administration practice manager at consultancy Apps Associates LLC, noted that a few existing features will no longer be supported in Oracle Database 19c, including Oracle Multimedia and the Oracle Streams data replication tool.

Oracle's more advanced GoldenGate software will take over all replication functions from Oracle Streams, which the vendor stopped updating when it released the first incarnation of Oracle Database 12c. Meanwhile, Oracle recommended that 19c users with existing Oracle Multimedia applications move their multimedia content to its SecureFiles LOBs storage architecture for large objects and use third-party products to do image processing and conversion.”

“Security enhancements in Oracle 19c seek to reduce the impact of internal threats -- a danger that Apps Associates' Terala said organizations often ignore. Notable among the new security features, he reported, are predefined default metadata schemas, new encryption algorithms and the ability to focus audits of database usage on SQL statements generated by top-level users.”
