I know I can use ctx_query.count_hits to count the number of document matching a query, and similarly, I can use

count(*) where CONTAINS(...)

But these are only options if I actually have a query. Those functions throw an exception if I pass an empty string as a query (thanks oracle...). So,

Is there a way to count the total number of document indexed by my oracle.text index?

Never used text indexes, but it sounds like you just want a simple count(*) of the table where the indexed field IS NOT NULL. –  Phil Mar 26 '13 at 1:10
    
The index is built using a user store that filters and joins several tables, not just 1 table. That mean that I would need to reproduce the index building logic in a count query, which does not make sense. –  Stephane Mar 26 '13 at 9:27
