Oracle Job Scheduling

Chapter 2 - Configuring Oracle Job Scheduling

Setting up a Test Environment

The MANAGE SCHEDULER privilege should only be granted when a user must administer job classes, windows and window groups.  These objects provide a link between the scheduler and the resource manager, a feature which had traditionally required the DBA role.  The roles and privileges associated with the 10g scheduler will be presented in the following text.

In the previous script, a system privilege and an object privilege were granted to job_user to allow the creation of a task to schedule.  The following script creates a database procedure that will be used throughout this book when creating jobs.  This procedure uses the dbms_system package to write a user defined string to the alert log at the start and end of the job.  The body of the procedure loops 100 times with a sleep of one second in each loop.  It also uses the dbms_application_info package to write information to the v$session and v$session_longops views.  The use of the dbms_system and dbms_application_info packages will be covered in more detail in Chapter 5 of this text.
