Just finished my Birds of a Feather XMLDB panel session in the Marriott Hotel and now looking back on a event full day. It all started of with a Keynote session with among others Mark Hurd. the most interesting bit, in my honest opinion, was the announcement of more details in Oracle 12c. I will come back later on this, as far as I am allowed being a beta participant, but hereby some shots from the Keynote session that will give you a pretty good idea on usefulness of pluggable databases in Oracle 12c.XMLDB News
So with all this excitement going on about 12c, are there already some small details about new XMLDB functionality. Via a Tom Kyte presentation, Hands-on Labs and some other sessions, the following details were made available to the public. Keen on XMLDB stuff, this is what I picked up.

I just made use of the very cool OTN Virtual Developer Day Database site. In this environment you can follow OTN Developer Day sessions, for example, at home, while making use of all the material available on that site plus the downloadable Virtualbox OTN Developer Day Appliance. Despite you can choose for tracks like Java, .Net, APEX, there is also a database section which handles (as you might expect it from me regarding interest) Oracle XMLDB functionality.
There is a 1 hour webcast available from Mark Drake, Oracle Product Manager, that takes you along all the basics / general overview (basic due too it is too extensive to show it in only an hour) of possibilities of Oracle XMLDB functionality. For convenience there is also a PDF document that has most of the slide info of the webcast. It doesn’t contain the demo’s or extra Virtualbox OTN Developer Day Appliance first steps info, of course, and what to do to reset the training XMLDB environment in this appliance.
This PDF and the webcast starts with the Oracle safeguard (legal disclaimer), with the general product outline slide saying among others that Oracle is not responsible or obliged to actually build-in features More >
