Hi,

Can any one say me how many maximum autonomous transactions are possible in a procedure?

I think that limits are based on your hardware. Each autonomous transaction creates a "mini session" within your main transaction. I haven't checked it but I think that Oracle didn't impose explicit limits to the number of autonomous trainsactions.

IMHO - if you have more than 1 - check your design.

It's fine to have multiple autonomous transaction calls within the execution of a procedure, but if it's for something like audit logging, then a single autonomous tx to do the logging would be preferable. It would generally be quite difficult to get multiple autonomous transactions running at the same sime in a single session (unless it involves papallel query option).

So there are no restrictions in the maximum number of Autonomous transactions being used in a procedure.Am i right?

Just because you can do something really foolish or stupid, does not mean it is good practice to do so.
