Our dba out here wants to add new tables to the existing database for new sites and restrict specific tables to specific user accounts. So in coldfusion, one datasource would use one account and another datasource would use a different one. From the perspective of CF, they are seperate databases. But in actuality, they are all one database within Oracle. Is this a good practice? I kind of feel that entirely seperate databases would be better, but then I don't know much about oracle so I could be way off base. Anyone care to give a brief run down on how Oracle treats databases? TIA Bruce P.S. - These databases are for internal sites, not for customers although there may be in the future.
