Oracle Database New Features (12c to 19c)

From Oracle database 12c on-wards, whole architecture was changed. And it comes with many new features. Oracle also changed the policy of releasing database patches and version. Now we are seeing new version every year from 2018 on-wards, i.e. 18c in the year of 2018, 19, in the year of 2019 and now very soon 20c is coming this year.

Here I am highlighting Oracle database new features which was introduce in different Oracle database versions. My focus is to highlight most important features from version 12c onwards up to 19c.

This will help you to understand which feature we can use in which version.
