Chapter 3 - Review Meetings

Oracle Database Design Review Meetings

One of the overlooked duties of an Oracle DBA is to inform, educate and assist the application development staff during the application development process. Although these responsibilities may not be formally assigned to the DBA, the DBA unit often finds that they are providing these services by default. The DBA is often considered to be a seasoned veteran who spends most of their time learning the subtle eccentricities of the Oracle database management system.

It is the DBA’s responsibility to ensure that the overall design and implementation of the new application is proceeding according to expectations. Although application developers may be experts in SQL, procedural languages (Java, PL/SQL, C variations, etc.), they still turn to the DBA for help with standards, procedures, performance design, error recovery and complex SQL.

A continuous and effective dialogue between the DBA unit, system support personnel and application developers is of utmost importance throughout the entire application design and implementation process. One method to foster effective communications is for the DBA unit to create a series of new application design review meetings. These meetings can be organized in a manner that promotes efficient application usage of the Oracle database environment. The design review meetings can be scheduled during logical break points between the different stages of the application development process.
