Oracle Job Scheduling

Chapter 2 - Configuring Oracle Job Scheduling

Overview and Examples of dbms_job Functions

PROCEDURE submit (
  job       OUT BINARY_INTEGER,
  what      IN  VARCHAR2,
  next_date IN  DATE DEFAULT sysdate,
  interval  IN  VARCHAR2 DEFAULT 'null',
  no_parse  IN  BOOLEAN DEFAULT FALSE,
  instance  IN  BINARY_INTEGER DEFAULT 0,
  force     IN  BOOLEAN DEFAULT FALSE)

The parameters associated with these procedures and their usage are as follows:

  • job - A number that uniquely identifies the job.
     

  • what - A string that specifies the actual work that should be executed by the job.

    next_date
    - A date that specifies the next time the job will run.
     

  • interval - A string that is evaluated when the job is executed to determine the next time the job should run.  The value NULL means the job should not run again.
     

  • no_parse - A boolean that indicates if the validity of the job specified in the what parameter should be checked.
     

  • instance - The instance number that is allowed to run this job, allowing the job queue affinity to be set.  By default, any instance can run the job.
