We connect from a VB 6.0 program via OO4O to an Oracle 8.1.7 database, using bind variables in connection with select statements. Running ok, but performance again by using bind vars not as good as expected!
When looking into the table v$sqlarea, we were able to detect the reason. We expected that our program submits the sql statement with bind vars, Oracle parses this once, and with each select statement again, we do not have a reparse. But: It seems that with each new session Oracle reparses the sql statement, that is, Oracle is not able to memorize or cache bind vars and statements. Even more worrying, this kind of behaviour was visible with each new dynaset, but the same database/session.
Is there anybody our there with an idea of what is happening here?
