Need simple HASH-algorithms for Oracle-Database
We want to compare data that is stored in an Oracle-database with data we have in an IBM DB2-Database.
There are two possible methods: line by line (field by field) or column by column.
We are able to aggregate numbers and dates using SUM. But with strings (VARCHAR2) it is more difficult. In DB2 I found the function HASH4 that calculates an integer using ADLER32 or CRC32.
I am able to write ADLER32 with PL/SQL but it is too slow. Having this function given by Oracle it would be easier for me. And I am sure that others will have advantages from this.
