DBMS_Metadata – Schema extractions part II

Previously, I blogged about how DBMS_METADATA, why no doubt powerful, seemed a little less than user-friendly in its implementation and documentation.

I also believed that I would get to the bottom of how to reverse engineer some database creation scripts using very few calls to DBMS_METADATA without doing any looping around data dictionary tables.

Unfortunately, no good progress to report so far.

I was even hoping to cheat by tracing a EXPDP DATAPUMP export and seeing how that called DBMS_METADATA but it didn’t produce the goods. Yep, not surprised – thought it sounded too simple. So for now this is just adrift sinking further down my to-do list.
