Hi,

I have screen which was desined in PL/SQL Catridges in apps. In that screen some enterable fields these values r the passing parameters to create value sets, functions, menus etc in apps by using front end screens. Now in that screen i have a button. when i click that button it have to create unix shell script which i need to run this script in unix to compile the package which we have written and pass those screen feild values to the package.

Please give me some thing replated to this idea or if u have any script related script send to me.

You need to use Java or some external stored procedure to call OS commands from pl/sql.
Search the forum.

to run a script from an HTML button, you can invoke the CGI program directly - or if your button submits to your PL/SQL cartridge (mod_plsql) then call the OS command directly from PL/SQL.

 Windows example in 10G
Write your parameters to a temp file read by your script
else re-define the job_action with the actual parameter values passed in.

--   DBMS_SCHEDULER.create_job
--      (job_name        => 'testjob',
--       job_type        => 'EXECUTABLE',
------       job_action      => 'c:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe /c c:\my_bat.bat',
--       job_action      => 'c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe /c c:\my_bat.bat',
--       enabled         => false
--      );

-- Sync
  DBMS_SCHEDULER.run_job
      (job_name        => 'testjob',
      use_current_session =>TRUE);


Or just use the JAVA route as mentioned...

Use a external table to read the parameter file and use it in your PL/SQL procedure.

Michel

to initiate the load while connected to the database, yes I'd use an external table or utl_file package to read the external file (available on the DB server machine). The main advantage is no passwd in external script. To initiate the load from a scipt, you could use sql*loader to load the data into a table and then process the data from there (using trigger to call the proc), or just use sqlplus. Simplified example (date format ommitted, default error handling etc)...
my_host>>cat t.txt           
10/31/2008
11/01/2008
my_host>>cat t.txt | sed "s/^/exec my_proc(\'/;s/$/\');/" > tmp.sql
my_host>>cat tmp.sql
exec my_proc('10/31/2008');
exec my_proc('11/01/2008');
my_host>>echo exit | sqlplus -s scott/tiger@dev @tmp.sql       

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.
