Currently We cannot pass refcursor over db link. I think it would be good to have this feature, if we can pass a refcuror over a db link. It will simplify the current process which we use as work-around

    Why would you prefer a refcursor over a db link instead of a direct select (maybe based upon a pipepline table function?).

    Refcursors are often used to establish an interface for a java or .net application. I don't see (yet) how this helps for direct database logic.
