Hi,


1. What is DBMS_JOB ?
    There are up to 36 Oracle background processes(SNPn processes) you can configure and use them to run user  stored procedures periodically and automatically on the server side. User jobs are submitted and managed by the Oracle supplied package called DBMS_JOBS.

2. Configure Oracle to startup SNPn processes.
   (1) SHUTDOWN DATABASE
   (2) Edit your initDIS.ora, add/modify the following parameters.
       job_queue_processes = 4 # Upper limit=36
       job_queue_interval = 10 # No. of seconds to awake SNP processes ,Range = 1-3600
       processes = 123 # Enlarge it for high value of job_queue_processes
   (3) Restart Oracle

3. Submit your job to the database.
   (1) Connect to Oracle as an valid user who is granted with the execute privilege of the DBMS_JOB PACKAGE.
   (2) Assume you have a stored procedure test_proc and want to run it automatically in Oracle once an hour.
======================================
DECLARE
   job_no  BINARY_INTEGER;
begin
   job_no := 1000; -- Assign you job No. whatever you want
   DBMS_JOB.ISUBMIT(job_no, -- Job No.
          'test_proc;',     -- procedure name to run
          TO_CHAR(SYSDATE), -- job start time
          'SYSDATE+1/24' ); -- time interval in unit of DAY to restart
end;
/

You may save the parameters required by the stored procedure in a table or just hard code in the
DBMS_JOB.ISUBMIT line like the following

dbms_job.isubmit(job_no,'proc_test(''arg1'');',
          sysdate,'sysdate+1/24');

=======================================
4. Remove your job from the database.
begin
   dbms_job.remove(1000);
end;
/

5. View your jobs submitted
       select * from USER_JOBS;

Hope this helps
