Nope.  You grant execute on the package.  That's it.

connect as the owner/schema to grant the permissions. not "everybody" can grant permissions.

in the sql developer, you might need to "refresh" in the package folder to see the new permissions.
though EXECUTE permissions does not give you permissions to see the package body code, if I remember correctly ...

Unless there is a synonym they need to fully qualify it with schema.xyz_pkg.

If the user logs in to sql*plus what do they see when the do the following:
SQL> describe schema.xyz_pkg

describe will show only signature of packages procs.
if you want to make sure that the package is avaialble, query all_source.

try

SELECT text
FROM all_source
WHERE owner = <schema_owner>
AND   NAME = <package_name>
AND TYPE = 'PACKAGE BODY'

or get an IDE like TOAD, SQL Developer, or PLSQL Developer

You either need to grant 'create any procedure' or 'select on dba_source' to the user whom you want to be able to see the source code of package body. Here is the test case to prove this:
 

SQL> ed
Wrote file afiedt.buf

  1  create or replace package pkg_test as
  2  procedure p_test;
  3* end;
SQL> /

Package created.

SQL> ed
Wrote file afiedt.buf

  1  create or replace package body pkg_test as
  2  procedure p_test is
  3  begin
  4    null;
  5  end;
  6* end;
SQL> /

Package body created.

SQL> create user test identified by test;

User created.

SQL> grant execute on pkg_test to test;

Grant succeeded.

SQL> conn test/test@test-server
ERROR:
ORA-01045: user TEST lacks CREATE SESSION privilege; logon denied


Warning: You are no longer connected to ORACLE.
SQL> conn riaz@test-server
Enter password: ********
Connected.
SQL> grant create session to test;

Grant succeeded.

SQL> conn test/test@test-server
Connected.
SQL> desc riaz.pkg_test
PROCEDURE P_TEST

SQL> ed
Wrote file afiedt.buf

  1* SELECT distinct type from all_source where name='PKG_TEST'
SQL> /

TYPE
------------
PACKAGE

--So the user can only see package not package body. This is your situation.

SQL> conn riaz@test-server
Enter password: ********
Connected.
SQL> grant create any procedure to test;

Grant succeeded.

SQL> conn test/test@test-server
Connected.
SQL> SELECT distinct type from all_source where name='PKG_TEST';

TYPE
------------
PACKAGE
PACKAGE BODY

--User can see package body as well now

SQL> conn riaz@test-server
Enter password: ********
Connected.
SQL> revoke create any procedure from test;

Revoke succeeded.

SQL> conn sys@test-server as sysdba
Enter password: ***********
Connected.
SQL> grant select on dba_source to test;

Grant succeeded.

SQL> conn test/test@test-server
Connected.
SQL> SELECT distinct type from all_source where name='PKG_TEST';

TYPE
------------
PACKAGE

SQL> ed
Wrote file afiedt.buf

  1* SELECT distinct type from dba_source where name='PKG_TEST'
SQL> /

TYPE
------------
PACKAGE
PACKAGE BODY

--User can see package body as well now. With this method you need to query dba_source.

What are you wanting to do here?  

You do not grant execute on a package body.  You grant execute on the package itself and users can execute any exposed procedure or function in the package.

If you are wanting to actually see the code then use the queries above to select against dba_source.

Please explain exactly what you are wanting to do.

Thanks riazpk: Thanks for all ur anaswers.  Problem is when the user log on using SQL developer he is not able to see the package body . he only sees package spec.

As per riazpk comment: i did   "grant create any procedure to test;".  I grant this on the my user. now user can able to see the package body using SQL developer.

Thanks for all once again....
