Hi,

Can you please let me know what will happen if I query a oracle materialized view during materialized view refresh?

Thanks.

Fast refresh or complete refresh?

During a complete refresh you should see no rows in the view.  A complete does a truncate and load.  Once complete the load is committed and you will see all data.

During a fast refresh you should see the pre-refresh data.  It is transactional and committed at the end.

I confirm above.
which is the reason why, on my MV which are complete refresh, I have 2 of them, and a view that is directed to the "other" one I am refreshing, and the applications use the view, not the MV .

We did it with 2 mviews and a synonym.  Everything used the synonym and didn't know the name of the mview.  Once the refresh completed successfully, the synonym was changed.
