Oracle Refresh Group consistency with nested materialized views.

A Refresh Group can be used to refresh a list of materialized views and ensures that all data is read with transaction consistency. This post is about the meaning of consistency when one materialized view depends on the other one. That’s just a quick test to understand the behavior. Any comment is welcome (preferably on twitter — @FranckPachot)


The documentation mentions:

To preserve referential integrity and transactional (read) consistency among multiple materialized views, Oracle Database can refresh individual materialized views as part of a refresh group. After refreshing all of the materialized views in a refresh group, the data of all materialized views in the group correspond to the same transactionally consistent point in time.
