Use Oracle and Triggers to Secure Table Data

Ever deleted some tables accidently and had to waste your time doing them all over again? Oracle, in conjunciton with Triggers, provides an easy solution to this problem.

First, create a table that holds the table name. Say you create a table called SafeTable with a column names SafeTableName and the datatype varchar2. Populate this table with the table names that should not be dropped. Then go ahead and create the trigger as follows:

CREATE or REPLACE TRIGGER checkForSafeTable BEFORE DROP ON DATABASEDECLARE  TABLENAME CHAR(20);BEGIN  SELECT SafeTableName INOT TABLENAME from SafeTable   WHERE UPPER(TABLENAME)=ora_dict_obj_name;  IF sql%found THEN    RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR(-20001,'This is a SAFE table');  END IF;EXCEPTION  WHEN no_data_found   THEN dbms_output.put_line('This table will be dropped');END;

When you create this trigger, you cannot drop any table that has an entry in the SafeTable.
