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).
