Query on all_source table

Hi gurus,

I wrote a procedure, show_sources, that show all sources of users. The procedure is stored on user having DBA privilege. I found that the returned result from the procedure shows only sources of object granted execute to public. But if I take and run a SQL statement in the procedure via sqlplus, its result will shows all objects' source.

I would like to know why the results are different and how can I do the same returned result of sqlplus.

Thank U before hand,
P.Peach

OS: Solaris SPARC 2.6

Procedure Code: CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE show_sources is
cursor SHOW_ALL is
SELECT distinct owner, name
FROM all_source
WHERE owner in ('A', 'B');
BEGIN
dbms_output.enable(100000);
For rec in show_all Loop
dbms_output.put_line(rec.owner || '.' || rec.name );
End Loop;
END;
Procedure Return:

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE show_sources AUTHID CURRENT_USER is

grant given to a user is not accessible thru stored procedure as it holds potential threat of access violation

for eg. user 'A' creates a table / procedure and want to give access to user 'B' only and if procedure / function can access object of 'A' in procedure / function then 'B' can create such procedure and will give access to his procedure to other users which 'A' may not like.

so purposly its not allowed.
