Workaround for ORA-600/ORA-7445 with SQL Repair Advisor

From time to time we hit Errors like ORA-600 or ORA-7445, which are triggered by specific SQL statements. For these cases, Oracle developed the SQL Repair Advisor. This is a short demonstration of utilizing the SQL Repair Advisor to avoid ORA-7445 caused by a SQL statement.
