Hi ,

I am using Oracle procedures in my shellscript .
Can you advice how to get the return values from the Oracle plsql to proceed further on the shell scripting?
Or in case any error happened during PLSQL , how to get the error code /resturn status and handle the exceptions?

      
Thanks

Can you provide more information?

Exceptions are typically handled inside PL/SQL itself.

What are you returning from the procedure?
What are you wanting to do with it once it is returned?
In case of an exception, what do you want the script to do?

Try something like this:
Result=`sqlplus -s userid/passwd <<EOSQL
var var1 number;
exec myProc( :var1 out number);
print :var1
exit
EOSQL`

Open in new window

Hi Slightwv,

Slightwv,

Sorry for late response, i didnt see ur post ...

What are you returning from the procedure?
The returnFlag
What are you wanting to do with it once it is returned?
Based  on returnFlag status need to run the commands
In case of an exception, what do you want the script to do?
It should log the exception and exit .

Thanks

>>The returnFlag

Need more information.  Do you mean the error-code like ORA-00942, teh error message, what?

>>Based  on returnFlag status need to run the commands

What commands?  More PL/SQL code, more Unix commands, what?

>>It should log the exception and exit .

Log how?  In a log file created by the script, in the database, what/where?


The more specific you can be when asking questions, the faster you can get it answered.  We need to know the specifics...

Hi,

First apologies about the other question. I do understand that here i am getting help , i was try to make the question visible to some other experts so only posted this . Sorry again.

In the PLSQL , we have return_flag = y and return_flag = n , so how shell script will capture that y/n value.

Based on the y/n , i have to execute Unix commands.

The exception, say "unable to access table" should get logged in the Unix log which i am storing >> /var/log/app/log

Thanks

Did you try the sample provided my Mike in http:#a40575654 ?

The Unix shell variable Result should contain whatever the output parameter of the stored procedure is.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay.

Its working fine,but the only issue is the output coming as below.

pl/sql procedure completed...............................................123

I want to store only the actual value. I managed to get the value using shell script.
But is there a way to handle the same in oracle ? so i get the output as 123

Thanks

Do this:
Result=`sqlplus -s userid/passwd <<EOSQL
var var1 number;
exec myProc( :var1 out number);
exit :var1
EOSQL`
return_flag=$?

Open in new window

So instead of checking the variable var1 for Y or N, i can check the value for $return_flag=0or not 0 right?

This is unix return code from 0 to 255 only

Sorry for confusion , 123 is the value output from stored procedure.
its the value returned from table column which is the output parameter.

The "exit :var1" statement will return the the value output from stored procedure as a "Unix" $? return code and must be a number between 0 and 255.
