7 SQL*Loader and PL/SQL Demonstrations

This chapter describes how to build and run the SQL*Loader and PL/SQL demonstration programs available with Oracle Database. It contains the following sections:

Note:

To use the demonstrations described in this chapter, you must install Oracle Database Examples included on the Oracle Database 11g Examples media. You must unlock JONES account and set the password before creating the demonstrations.

7.1 SQL*Loader Demonstrations

Run the ulcase.sh file to run the SQL*Loader demonstrations. To run an individual demonstration, read the information contained in the file to determine how to run it.

7.2 PL/SQL Demonstrations

PL/SQL includes many demonstration programs. You must build database objects and load sample data before using these programs. To build the objects and load the sample data:

  1. Change directory to the PL/SQL demonstrations directory:

    $ cd $ORACLE_HOME/plsql/demo
    
  2. Start SQL*Plus, and enter the following command:

    $ sqlplus 
    SQL> CONNECT JONES
    Enter password: password
    
  3. Run the following commands to build the objects and load the sample data:

    SQL> @exampbld.sql
    SQL> @examplod.sql
    

    Note:

    Build the demonstrations as any Oracle user with sufficient privileges. Run the demonstrations as the same Oracle user.

PL/SQL Kernel Demonstrations

The following PL/SQL kernel demonstrations are available with the software:

  • examp1.sql to examp8.sql

  • examp11.sql to examp14.sql

  • sample1.sql to sample4.sql

  • extproc.sql

To compile and run the exampn.sql or samplen.sql PL/SQL kernel demonstrations:

  1. Start SQL*Plus, and enter the following command:

    $ cd $ORACLE_HOME/plsql/demo
    $ sqlplus 
    SQL> CONNECT JONES
    Enter password: password
    
  2. Run a command similar to the following to run a demonstration, where demo_name is the name of the demonstration:

    SQL> @demo_name
    

To run the extproc.sql demonstration:

  1. If required, add an entry for external procedures to the tnsnames.ora file, similar to the following:

    EXTPROC_CONNECTION_DATA =
       (DESCRIPTION =
           (ADDRESS_LIST = 
              (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL = IPC)( KEY = EXTPROC))
           )
           (CONNECT_DATA = 
              (SID = PLSExtProc)
           )
        )
    
  2. If required, add an entry for external procedures to the listener.ora file, similar to the following:

    Note:

    The value that you specify for SID_NAME in the listener.ora file must match the value that you specify for SID in the tnsnames.ora file.
    • On HP-UX, Linux, and Solaris:

      SID_LIST_LISTENER = 
        (SID_LIST = 
           (SID_DESC=
              (SID_NAME=PLSExtProc)
              (ORACLE_HOME=oracle_home_path)
              (ENVS=EXTPROC_DLLS=oracle_home_path/plsql/demo/extproc.so,
                 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=oracle_home_path/plsql/demo)
              (PROGRAM=extproc)
            )
          )
      
    • On AIX:

      SID_LIST_LISTENER = 
        (SID_LIST = 
           (SID_DESC=
              (SID_NAME=PLSExtProc)
              (ORACLE_HOME=oracle_home_path)
              (ENVS=EXTPROC_DLLS=oracle_home_path/plsql/demo/extproc.so,
                 LIBPATH=oracle_home_path/plsql/demo)
              (PROGRAM=extproc)
            )
          )
      
  3. Change directory to $ORACLE_HOME/plsql/demo.

  4. Run the following command to create the extproc.so shared library, build the required database objects, and load the sample data:

    $ make -f demo_plsql.mk extproc.so exampbld examplod
    

    Alternatively, if you have already built the database objects and loaded the sample data, then run the following command:

    $ make -f demo_plsql.mk extproc.so
    
  5. From SQL*Plus, run the following commands:

    SQL> CONNECT SYSTEM
    Enter password: system_password
    SQL> GRANT CREATE LIBRARY TO JONES;
    SQL> CONNECT JONES
    Enter password: password
    SQL> CREATE OR REPLACE LIBRARY demolib IS
      2  'oracle_home_path/plsql/demo/extproc.so';
      3  /
    

    Note:

    CREATE LIBRARY is a very high privilege. This privilege must be granted only to trusted users.
  6. To start the demonstration, run the following command:

    SQL> @extproc
    

PL/SQL Precompiler Demonstrations

Note:

The make commands shown in this section build the required database objects and load the sample data in the JONES schema.

The following precompiler demonstrations are available:

  • examp9.pc

  • examp10.pc

  • sample5.pc

  • sample6.pc

To build the PL/SQL precompiler demonstrations, set the library path environment variable to include the $ORACLE_HOME/lib directory, and run the following commands:

$ cd $ORACLE_HOME/plsql/demo
$ make -f demo_plsql.mk demos

To build a single demonstration, run its name as the argument in the make command. For example, to build the examp9 demonstration, run the following command:

$ make -f demo_plsql.mk examp9

To start the examp9 demonstration, run the following command:

$ ./examp9

7.3 Calling 32-Bit External Procedures from 64-Bit Oracle Database PL/SQL

Note:

This section applies to any 64-Bit Oracle Database.

Starting with Oracle Database 11g release 2 (11.2), extproc32 is no longer available from 64-bit Oracle database install. Therefore, if you have a requirement to run 32-bit external procedures from 64-bit Oracle database, you must obtain 32-bit extproc by installing the corresponding 32-bit client software for your platform. Specifically, you must choose custom install within 32-bit client installation, and then select both Oracle Database Utilities and Oracle listener.

In other words, you need a separate Oracle home (32-bit) to run the 32-bit extproc. Note that the executable name is not extproc32 anymore, but simply extproc.

To enable 32-bit external procedures on 64-bit Oracle database environment, you must configure 32-bit listener for extproc and specify Oracle home (from the 32-bit client install) for the extproc listener.ora entry.
