I want to generate a trace with list of statements that are fired when I apply patch .

I am using Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release

When I set the parameter sql_trace=true in the init.ora file and when I start the database I am facing this error

ORA-32006: SQL_TRACE initialization parameter has been deprecated

What should be done ?

This is a very very bad idea to enable trace when applying a patch.
You may screw up your database.

You can set "alter system set SQL_TRACE = TRUE;"

or you should use DBMS_MONITOR/DBMS_SESSION package.

This parameter is deprecated. Oracle recommends that you use the DBMS_MONITOR and DBMS_SESSION packages instead. SQL_TRACE is retained for backward compatibility only.


[edit: Before setting this parameter please keep in mind Micheal comments.]
