Hello All,

Is there a way to disable the below function for a specific package:

FND_FILE.PUT_LINE(FND_FILE.LOG,'XYZ');

Thanks,
Vaibhav

There are almost 500 utterances of this statement across 5 custom packages and 2 Oracle APIs and it is generating more than 200k lines of log which is increasing the execution time of concurrent program exponentially. Now I know it is unfortunate and a bad coding practice but here is where I am stuck. The codes have been written way back a decade ago and now performance is the issue.

Thus I am looking for a way to disable this FND_FILE.PUT_LINE(FND_FILE.LOG,'XYZ')statement if there is any.

a quick EDIT of the 5 packages should be able to comment out this line in under 10 minutes at 2 minutes per package.

I assume that simply returning NULL from the function is not acceptable since it is likely used in other packages.

The choice is yours. Pick your poison.

FND_FILE is I believe an oracle supplied package that comes with oracle apps.

To have it not run from certain places you would probably have to hack the package code so that it does a call stack check.
Hacking the package code probably isn't even possible.

You'll be far better off just changing the calling package to remove the calls to fnd_file.

Using a simple "sed" command it can be done in less than a single minute. Smile

Unless package is wrapped as most Oracle supplied packages are Smile

OP said, "There are almost 500 utterances of this statement across 5 custom packages"
They are NOT Oracle supplied code.
