The biggest trouble comes with every new release. To enhance our application we have to know about the latest state of all DB objects. To find this out, we have to run through the history of all PL/SQL files.
There must be a better way to solve this problem. We want something like "export all objects" so we get a lot of SQL files that contain the definitions of all objects. We take these files and put them into our new DB, so we have the latest state of the DB (without running through the history).
