I have an oracle 11g table
tab1
----
f1      f2
A      p
A      q
B      r
C     m
A      s
B      g
C     x

How do I get this output with best performance? I need the query to run on a table that has 100K records.
O/P:
----
F1   F2
-----------
A     p,q,s
B     r,g
C     m,x

Try this

SELECT
       f1,
       RTRIM(
           EXTRACT(XMLAGG(XMLELEMENT("s", tab1.f2 || ',')),
'/s/text()').getstringval(),
           ','
       )
           f2
FROM tab1
GROUP BY f1

If 11gR2, there is a LISTAGG function that is probably better.

>>for all possible
I'm on mobile and can't fully read that link but it I could not find the XML method posted above.

With the exception of listagg, also mentioned above, the others are a little out-dated.

If you don't have 11gR2 and can use listagg, the XML method almost always out-performs the others listed in that link.
