To unplug an application seed:
Unplugging an application seed disassociates the application seed from an application container. You unplug an application seed when you no longer want the application seed to be available.
You can unplug an application seed from an application container.
The current user must have SYSDBA or SYSOPER administrative privilege, and the privilege must be either commonly granted or locally granted in the application container. The user must exercise the privilege using AS SYSDBA or AS SYSOPER at connect time.
About Unplugging an Application Seed
Close the application seed.

In SQL*Plus, ensure that the current container is the application root of the application container to which the application seed belongs.
Unplugging an Application Seed
Before it can be unplugged, the application seed must be closed. When you unplug an application seed, the unplugged application seed is in mounted mode. The unplug operation makes some changes in the application seed’s data files to record, for example, that the application seed was successfully unplugged. Because it is still part of the application container, the unplugged application seed is included in an RMAN backup of the entire CDB. Such a backup provides a convenient way to archive the unplugged application seed in case it is needed in the future.
To completely remove the application seed from the application container, you can drop it. The only operation supported on an unplugged application seed is dropping the application seed. The application seed must be dropped from the application container before it can be plugged back into the same application container. An application seed is usable only when it is plugged into an application container.
P.S. If this technique doesn’t seem to work for you, you’re probably not “whacking” hard enough. Start from fairly high up and give it a good whack. Don’t be timid! A sturdy spatula or wooden spoon seems to work best.
I’m hoping you’ll become one too, since pomegranates are known as a superfood with tons of wonderful health benefits, including fighting cancer and heart disease, as well as lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. They’re also loaded with B vitamins, potassium, and folic acid. Next time you’re at the market, be sure to pick up a pom or two and try out this amazing technique.

That’s it – The Easy Way to Remove Pomegranate Seeds. Super easy. Try it, you won’t believe how simple it is! Bye-bye expensive pomegranate seeds!
A wonderful hack
Several years ago, however, my little culinary world was transformed (well, at least in regard to pomegranates)! I discovered a brilliant, super simple, non-messy, no-water way to extract the seeds. And it took less than a minute to remove the seeds from a whole pomegranate!
The only other issue is an unripe pomegranate. But for the most part, the poms you buy at the grocery store are picked in their ripe state so this isn’t an issue very often.
Initially, just try wetting the seed coat and allow 24 hours for it to fall off on its own. If it does not come off on its own, repeat moistening it and then using either tweezers or the tips of your fingers, gently pull at the seed coat. Again, remember that if you remove the cotyledon leaves during this process, the seedling will die.
Many gardeners refer to this condition as “helmet head.” Is the seedling doomed? Can you remove the seed coat that won’t come off before the seedling dies? Keep reading to learn more about what to do with a seed coat stuck to a plant.
When the seed coat is sticking to the seedling, before you do anything, you should determine whether anything should be done. Remember, seedlings are very delicate and even small amounts of damage can kill them. If the seed coat is stuck only on one of the leaves or just on the very tips of the cotyledon leaves, the seed coat may come off on its own without your help. But, if the cotyledon leaves are firmly stuck in the seed coat, then you may need to intervene.
No one is 100 percent sure why this happens, though most agree that a seed coat getting stuck on the seedling mainly occurs due to less than ideal planting and germinating conditions.
Why Did the Seed Coat Not Fall Off?
Misting the stuck seed coat with water may help to soften it enough for it to be gently removed. But, the most often recommended way to remove an attached seed coat is to spit on it. Yes, spit. This comes from the thought that enzymes found in saliva will gently work to remove anything that is keeping the seed coat on the seedling.
Some people believe that when a seed coat is sticking to the seedling it is an indication that the seeds were not planted deep enough. The idea is that the friction of the soil as the seed grows up helps to pull off the seed coat. Therefore, if the seed is not planted deep enough, the seed coat won’t come off well as it grows.
Others feel that when a seed won’t come off, this indicates that there was too little moisture in the soil or too little humidity in the surrounding air. The idea here is that the seed coat cannot soften as well as it should and is more difficult for the seedling to break free.
How to Remove a Seed Coat Attached to the Leaves
It happens to the best of gardeners. You plant your seeds and a few come up looking a little different. Instead of the cotyledon leaves on the top of the stem, there is what appears to be the seed itself. A closer inspection reveals that the seed coat is attached to the leaves—still.
Hopefully, if you follow the proper way to plant your seeds, the problem of having a seed coat attached to the seedling will never happen. But, if it does, it’s nice to know that you can still save a seedling when the seed coat won’t come off.
