I'm working with Oracle since version 8 and I know about this restriction. I was hopping that this will be eliminated in the future, but I saw that in Oracle 11i the same restriction exists.
Does anyone know if it will be eliminated in a future release?
I would like to know if there is a reason why this limitation exists. We are currently developing an JPA application and we have tables that have name with more than 30 characters.
because all table/index names must be stored in the data dictionary and that storage is only allocated for 30 characters
