I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What type of object?  
What do you consider a 'backup'?
vsorakeAuthor Commented:
I need to take back up of specific procedure, function,package and trigger objects.

Is there any way I can achieve the task through script?

Check out dbms_metadata.get_ddl:

Just pass in the different object_types and names.

For example a procedure called 'MYPROC' would go something like:

select dbms_metadata.get_ddl('PROCEDURE','MYPROC') from dual;
