implied run and commit on dbms_job

Hi there all  

As usual I/We am arguing with a developer, guess it is a normal thing for us all.  

Does anyone know of a document stating/mentioning the implied dbms_job.RUN that is called by oracle for a job when the time is reached for the job on the queue.  

This is because our developer only realized now that there is an implied commit on the when the procedure/package called is not autonomous as stated in NOTE: 61730.1 on metalink.  

They are not believing us that oracle just calls number) at the requested time and this has a build in commit they never considered before.  

Was discovered when they asked us to kill a job and was horrified to find that the work done in the job was commited. George
