I need to execute shell code from within an sql script running in sqlplus. The whole process is non-interactive, so it starts like:
sqlplus uid/pass @myscript
What I actually need to do, is at a specific point of my script to run a java prog. (Java stored procedures or any other kind of stored procedures is not an option) and then continue with my script.
PLease don't tell me about 'host' and '!' as these do not work when you invoke sqlplus with '@'... Any ideas?
