TOOLS YOU CAN USE

advertisement

The SQL statement CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE creates, compiles and saves a procedure on an Oracle database.

You need the CREATE PROCEDURE system privilege to create a procedure in your own schema.

Open SQL*Plus from Windows and log on to your database.

From SQL*Plus, open your skeleton.sql file.
 
SQL*Plus loads the contents of your skeleton.sql file into the SQL*Plus buffer or memory area and presents the SQL*Plus command prompt:

  1  CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE skeleton
  2  IS
  3  BEGIN
  4    NULL;
  5* END;
SQL>

Execute the contents of the SQL*Plus buffer. Type a front slash and press <enter> like this:

SQL> /

SQL*Plus informs you the procedure has been created successfully and presents the SQL command prompt:

Procedure created.

SQL>

Now your procedure is created, compiled and saved on your Oracle database.

We have a procedure now, so let's run it.
