>>Script Language and Platform: Oracle
Interval partitioning is a new partitioning feature introduced in Oracle 11g. This is an extension to range partitioning in which Oracle creates a partition automatically when the inserted value exceeds all other partition ranges.
Internal partition adds new partitions automatically, but does not drop any old partitions.
This script will automate adding new partitions and dropping the oldest partitions to a table partitioned by range.
This script was tested in Oracle 10g.
