unindex 11.2 cross schema

Foreign keys might point to another schema. Here is an unindex query for such situation. My earlier queries unindex and unindex 11.2 were built on top of user_* views. Here the queries are using all_* views. I am not using dba_* views as all_* views are usable for wider audience than just dba privileged. Reminder: you probably do not need all of those, but they might explain you some poor execution times or TM lock waits.

The index could be unique

drop table uq;

create table uq(pk int constraint uq_pk primary key, col int, col2 int);

create index uq_col_idx on uq(col,pk);

Index uq_col_idx is not unique but it might be defined as such. It contains all columns in a unique primary key. To find such candidates is just another relational division question.

A table vanishing from a plan

Christian Antognini published his presentation slides Challenges and Chances of the 11g Query Optimizer. Worth reading to get a nice overview. The 11g new feature "join elimination" is mentioned there. There is a similar behavior even in 10gR2 optimizer. A table mentioned in a query text vanishes from the query plan. It is not a join but a correlated sub query with a aggregate.
select 1 
  from dual mai 
 where exists (
   select max(1) 
     from dual inn 
    where mai.dummy=inn.dummy

| Id  | Operation        | Name |
|   0 | SELECT STATEMENT |      |
|   1 |  FAST DUAL       |      |
The sub query and the "inn" table is not seen in the plan. There is no need as the aggregate returns a row. This is not the case in my earlier post about not exists null. There the sub query is not correlated and it is using not exists. The not exists correlated makes similar elimination. But in addition adds a filter(NULL IS NOT NULL) just before entering even the first table.
select 1 
  from dual mai 
 where not exists (
   select max(1) 
     from dual inn 
    where mai.dummy=inn.dummy

| Id  | Operation        | Name |
|   0 | SELECT STATEMENT |      |
|*  1 |  FILTER          |      |
|   2 |   FAST DUAL      |      |
Predicate Information (identified by operation id):
   1 - filter(NULL IS NOT NULL)
One could ask, why would somebody write such a query...
