call another MySQL SP from within a MySQL SP

Dear all,

can I simply called a SP within another SP ? like

CREATE PROCEDURE `create_auditriggers` (IN databaseName VARCHAR(40))  	
BEGIN  
DECLARE a, b, finished  INT DEFAULT 10;
DECLARE temptable VARCHAR(50);	
DECLARE today TIMESTAMP DEFAULT CURRENT_DATE;
DECLARE v1, v2, v3 TINYINT ;
DECLARE current_tablelist VARCHAR(50) DEFAULT ""; 
DECLARE fullexcutecmd VARCHAR(5000);
DECLARE fullexcutecmd2 VARCHAR(5000) ;

/*Declare and populate the cursor with a SELECT statement */  	
	
DECLARE tablename CURSOR FOR 	
SELECT DISTINCT TABLE_NAME 	
    FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS	
    WHERE TABLE_SCHEMA=databaseName;   	
DECLARE CONTINUE HANDLER FOR NOT FOUND SET finished = 1;     
/*Specify what to do when no more records found, notice that the handler declaration must appear after variable and cursor declaration inside the stored procedures*/  	
OPEN tablename;	

	get_tabeslist: LOOP	
 
   FETCH tablename INTO current_tablelist;	
         IF finished = 1 THEN 	
          LEAVE  get_tabeslist;	
          END IF;	
    
 call Create_BEFORE_DELETE_TRIGGER ('databaseName','QRTZ_BLOB_TRIGGERS')

  
  END LOOP  get_tabeslist;	
close tablename;                             

END $$
DELIMITER ;

Open in new window


or I need to do Concat to build the whole string of calling SP again:

SET @fullexcutecmd =  CONCAT(' call Create_BEFORE_DELETE_TRIGGER ('databaseName',dhfahfdfdsfl')
,';');  

PREPARE stmt FROM @fullexcutecmd;
  EXECUTE stmt;
  DEALLOCATE PREPARE stmt;  

Open in new window

yes, you can call a procedure inside another procedure like this:

call Create_BEFORE_DELETE_TRIGGER ('databaseName','QRTZ_BLOB_TRIGGERS')

& if you define the inner procedure with "out" parameters, then the outer procedure can react to the result (if that is needed).

it seems that we can't do IF NOT EXISTs then create trigger logic ?

"IF you need to make a decision later based on that value"
