Hi All

I would like to know if anyone knows of a way to send messages tgrough oracle developer. My problem is I have developed a progarm to log records relation to IT services, however if a request is logged and assigned to someone there is no way of notifying that person through the program. There is one way but this would involve logging in and out of the program and thie is not what I want. So is there any way of providing automatic/dynamic message notification using oracle.

I really hope someone can shed some light on this one.

thank you

Nice idea, but even win pop-up or any messanger needs a running program to do that. I think that's not possible.

instead of log-in/log-out thru a program.

You might use the forms timer built-in to do the notification
running in the server side or application server.

hope this shed some light.

Hi Captain,

Besides the already mentioned methods, I suggest the following ( used in production about three/four yrs ago in 8i):

When you log the values in the table, put an after-insert trigger on that table, in which you can code for example: e-mail, sms some message.
