Oracle ADF PS_TXN Table is safe to truncate or delete?

Good day, i've been finding some strange stuff  while diving into Oracle ADF framework.
I would like to know what could happen if i delete every old record in the table PS_TXN when using Oracle ADF.
Also, what is the main purpose of this table?
This is configured in the AppModule of the application.
Thanks in advance.

The   PS_TXN table stores snapshots of pending changes made to BC4J application module instances.

,simply doing a blind delete or truncate without knowing the impact will simply make your changes lost. Also you may get some unexpected errors(error while inserting a record in PS_TXN table) as there is a sequence which is being used by the table and it is assigned to specific session while the application is running.

However if you refer docs, there are ways to delete the rows, there is an api which will do this task, so its safe to use an api which will decide the best way to delete the rows(inactive and older than specific date)

See the link below for illustration of the cleanup script

hello Wasim Akram Shaik, i've read the link and there it says Oracle itself provides a script to achieve the maintenance of these table and sequence, would you recommend to clear for example every registry wich is over 2 days old ?? (most of these apps are for reporting read only use, so i belive there is no sense on having such a FAT table PS_TXN)
On the other hand, wich one could you consider as your best practice?
Thank you!

>>2 days old

I really cannot predict the amount of the data with which the temp table is loaded in your environment, for huge transactions(which we have in our environment like around 1  million/day) we use to purge them daily(during the lean period). Some would do it weekly(for pre-prod), bi-monthly(sit/uat) etc., it all depends on the incoming you have..
