Yes, for an extent database, you have to upgrade the database to 10.2
and then set the sqlAuthorization property as a database property to
turn on SQL authorization. For new databases, there are two ways to turn
on SQL authorization:

   1. Set the property as a system property and then create a database.
      All new databases created with sqlAuthorization set as system
      property would automatically get this property set for them
   2. Create a database first and then set the property as a *database

For existing databases, there is only one way to enable SQL
authorization... that is by setting it as a database property.

Guess I will clarify this too. I now have 4 minor updates to make to
spec: 1) Discuss synonyms 2) Talk about revoking column privilege
following table privilege grant 3) Create view issue that Mamta
mentioned and 4) Upgrade clarification.
