How to delete all stored procedures in the database

I have to build and rebuild a a database. That often times involves deleting all tables and stored procedures in the database. Pretty tedious process because I have to delete each object one by one. Can someone give me a script that I can use to delete all of the tables, and another script to delete all of the stored procedures in Oracle. That would really save me some time building and rebuilding.

If you want to get rid of everything, why not simply drop the database and then create a new one?

But, if you really want to purge tables and procedures something like this should work.

You can adjust the object_type IN list to include other things like VIEW, FUNCTION, PACKAGE, TYPE, etc.

DECLARE
    v_ddl   VARCHAR2(1000);
BEGIN
    FOR x
        IN (SELECT owner, object_name, object_type
              FROM dba_objects
             WHERE owner IN ('your_schema1', 'your_schema2')
               AND owner NOT IN ('SYS', 'SYSTEM')  -- white list above is sufficient, this is mostly as a reminder
               AND object_type IN ('TABLE', 'PROCEDURE'))
    LOOP
        BEGIN
            v_ddl := 'drop ' || x.object_type || ' "' || x.object_owner || '"."' || x.object_name || '"';

            EXECUTE IMMEDIATE v_ddl;
        EXCEPTION
            WHEN OTHERS
            THEN
                DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line(SQLERRM);
                DBMS_OUTPUT.put_line(v_ddl);
                RAISE;  --- remove this line if you want to continue after an error
        END;
    END LOOP;
END;

why not stop the database
delete the files at OS level

and then recreate the database ?

i'm assuming this is a typical qas refresh ?

you could also backup the production and restore it as qas

I was thinking it would even be simpler:  drop the schema cascade.  If you drop all tables and procedures, what would be kept?  Functions and packages?
