Oracle Tips by Mike Ault

The DBMS_JOB Package

We will be looking in detail at the SUBMIT, ISUBMIT, RUN and REMOVE procedures in the course of this presentation. For a more detailed discussion of how this package is used look in “Oracle Built-In Packages” by Steven Feuerstein, Charles Dye and John Beresniwicz from O’Reilly Publishing or “Oracle8 Administration and Management” by Mike Ault from Wiley and Sons publishing.

To submit a job to the job queues you use either the ISUBMIT or SUBMIT procedures. The difference between ISUBMIT and SUBMIT is that with ISUBMIT you must set the job number manually while with SUBMIT a job number is pulled from an internal sequence. The standard for both of the procedures is:

DBMS_JOB.SUBMIT(job_num, what, next_date, interval, no_parse)

            Job_num         is a number (an IN for ISUBMIT, and OUT for SUBMIT)
            What                is a specific PL/SQL action
            Next_date        is a date expression for when the action should first be taken
            Interval                         is a character string that evaluates to a date in the
            No_parse         is a boolean the specifies when the PL/SQL should be parsed (defaults to false)

An example job submission using the  ISUBMIT procedure would be:



For more information on this topic, I recommend Don Burleson's latest book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference".
