I want to create an update/insert/delete alert on a certain column of a table in Oracle Apps without using triggers...
I know that Oracle Apps 11i has a facility which allows me to create an alert on the whole table...
but my requirement is only for a particular column not the whole table
Please can anyone advice....

to change the structure and making additon to oracle application table is dangerous.
however if you'd like to make a trigger.

you can create a trigger contained dbms_alert using dba studio or from sql plus.

example:
CREATE TRIGGER emptrig AFTER INSERT OR UPDATE OR DELETE ON emp
    BEGIN
      DBMS_ALERT.SIGNAL('emp_table_alert', 'message_text');
   END;

Thanks for the reply, but Trigger is not the option.
            The moment the table gets updated or a new data gets entered into the table, i can run a PL/SQL program. So I want to put a logic inside the PL/SQL program which can figure out which column got updated, and if the Column that got updated is the one i am monitoring. Then return the last value and the new value in that column.
