Please help me in creating an Oracle user that can only create Oracle objects in a single tablespace that can only view tables that are granted them in another tablespace within the same SID.

Functions, procedures, packages, triggers, views, etc. are created in the SYSTEM tablespace.  There is no way around that.  You cannot control where Oracle stores code.

If you want a user to only create objects in one tablespace, then only give them quota in that one tablespace.  Unless they have a role that has been granted unlimited tablespace or it is granted to public, that works just fine.

You cannot grant privileges based on a tablespace.  You can generate a script or statements that would do that, but there are no tablespace privileges.  Something like this:
SELECT 'grant select on ' 
       || owner 
       || '.' 
       || table_name 
       || ' to <newuser>;' 
FROM   dba_tables 
WHERE  tablespace_name = '<ts>'; 

Open in new window

Replace <newuser> with the username and <ts> with the tablespace.  That will generate a list of SQL statements, then just run them.

after you have read and understood the security guide for assigning privileges
you will understand that, even with the latest version, that's not possible

How is 11.2 the latest version?  If you are going to say read the latest version of the doc, at least post a link to the latest version.  This would be the latest documentation version of the same section of documentation.
