In Italian language we have accent words like àèéìòù
They are quite important because for instance “is” is spelled
whereas “and” is spelled
Accent are bad guys even today: if you copy them from MS-Word inside an Oracle sql script you can end up with different UTF-8 values.
Also the accent are likely to be destroyed if you past them in your html page without using the correct html entity (i.e. è )
Sometimes you need to export the data inserted with accent: an Oracle Virtual column can be an elegant solution….if you have at least Oracle 11g.
Also a magic update can fix some nasty problems….here the solution:
ALTER TABLE TEST_TABLE ADD( NAME_NORMALIZED generated

Also I’d like to thank all the people contributed: I have a list now.
On some environment, on some customers, Oracle connections are drop after some idle time (i.e. 2 minutes).
I have found a small plugin for Sql Developer to solve this issue: it is very handy and logs its usage. Code is also very clean
AngularJS is indeed a good framework, but if you lose some grip on it (i.e. you go in vacation for 2 weeks), it is very complex to re-grasp.
