Is "drop user" always "Cascading" ?


#1

When I delete a user with a SQL script in Oracle I write:

drop user karl cascade;

As far as I know I can omit “cascade”.

When I do a drop user in Toad: is it with or without “cascade”?

Hi Ben,

drop user karl cascade;
That’s what you need if the user owns any objects.

As far as I know I can omit “cascade”.
Only if the user is empty and owns nothing.

When I do a drop user in Toad: is it with or without “cascade”?
Yes. With cascade - it may check first to see if it needs to cascade or
not, but I suspect it simply uses cascade anyway - it works everytime
and causes little or no overhead to the (rare?) cases when a user has no
objects.
