Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
Add support for newly added functionality in Oracle 12.2: collations for columns
Case-Insensitive Database Oracle Database supports case-insensitive collations. By applying such collations to SQL operations, an application can perform string comparisons and matching in a case-insensitive way, independent of the language of the data. With the new Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (12.2) ability to declare collations for columns, you can declare a column to always be compared in a case-insensitive way. The column collation, if not specified explicitly, is inherited from a table default collation, which in turn is inherited from a schema default collation. This way, you can easily declare all character columns of an application in a database as case-insensitive.
