This video presents the capabilities of the Oracle Data Dictionary providing valuable information about the current state of the Oracle database. We will use SQL*Plus to view important information about the database directly from the Data Dictionary.

And for our first example, let's show a simple one,…viewing users in the database.…In order to do that,…we are going to retrieve data…from the dba users data dictionary view.…
