The function result cache, added in Oracle Database 11g, offers developers a way to dramatically reduce the amount of time it takes to retrieve data requested repeatedly by database sessions (specifically, when the same rows of a table are fetched much more frequently than they are changed). This cache is stored in the SGA, shared across all sessions in the instance, and automatically purged of "dirty data" by the Oracle Database. Every application running on 11.1 or higher should be taking advantage of this feature. Best of all, there is minimal impact on your code to start using this feature.
