action execution without locking DbVis

[This topic is migrated from our old forums. The original author name has been removed]

Hi, some actions can take quite a while, locking the gui all the time until ready. One solution can be to have the action submit a scheduler job, introducing extra complexity. Could this be done by pushing them into the background until done, popping up when ready? (or not popup at all when choosen for unattended). A list with active actions would be helpfull. This would be very nice. Thanks, Ronald. http://ronr.blogspot.com

Hi Ronald, Thanks for the examples. I see what you mean. I'll add this to our feature request list. Best Regards, Hans

Re: action execution without locking DbVis
Hi Hans, nice examples are generating objects statistics on a table or run the Segment Advisor on a tablespace (or more). Pick the oracle.xml that I recently sent to Roger, the Segment Advisor is made a bit easier in there... If you see a better way to code those - potentially long running - actions: please let me know best regards, Ronald http://ronr.blogspot.com

Re: action execution without locking DbVis
Hi Ronald, Can you give examples of actions that take so long as to cause this problem? Some of the actions already run in the background so that they do not freeze the GUI, for instance the Export actions and the Create/Alter Table actions. Best Regards, Hans
