Lesson 19

“I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.” Martha Washington (1732 - 1802)

   SQL-VIDEO -How to use JAVA Stream


Calling JAVA Stream in Oracle


Hands-On introduction

Your organization is now asking you to write a simple java program to identify a special problem that can be classified by iselfschooling’s problems only.


You have been assigned to:

1- Check for a successful installation of “initjvm.sql,”

2- Check JAVA pool memory usage,

3- Create the JAVA class, and

4- Publish the JAVA program to SQL.


Connect to SQLPLUS as the system/manager user.
SQL> CONNECT system/manager

JAVA installation

Check to see that you have the JAVA tool installed.
SQL> SELECT COUNT(*) FROM dba_objects
                WHERE object_type LIKE 'JAVA%'
SQL> /
This response, indicates that the JAVA tool was previously installed successfully. If you get a number less than 1200, you may have had problems with the installation process. And we recommend that you re-install the JAVA component.

JAVA pool memory usage

Also Check the JAVA pool memory usage.
SQL> SELECT * FROM v$sgastat
                WHERE pool LIKE 'java%'
SQL> /
You must have at least 30 megabytes of memory.

Memory limitation
Notice that the amount of MEMORY + MEMORY IN USE should add up to more than 30 megabytes.

If you have enough memory allocated for JAVA. Connect to SQLPLUS as the iself user.
SQL> CONNECT iself/schooling

Create a JAVA class

Create an iself java class, to return the iselfschooling messages.

    public class iself

    static public String message (String tail)

            return "iSelfSchooling-" + tail;
SQL> /

Publish a JAVA class

Publish the JAVA class to SQL by creating a PL/SQL function. Notice that JAVA programing is very case sensitive.



    LANGUAGE JAVA NAME 'iself.message (java.lang.String)
    return java.lang.String';


END error_msg;

SQL> /
This is an example of how to call JAVA from PL/SQL in Oracle9i.

Test a JAVA function

Test the error message function.
SQL> SELECT error_msg ('01320: Running JAVA was successful.')
                as "Message Function"
                FROM dual
SQL> /
This is an example of the iselfschooling message function.

DROP a JAVA source

Drop the JAVA source and the error_msg function.
SQL> /

Drop a JAVA function

SQL> /
You have dropped the created objects so that you can repeat these steps over if you wish.


“The farther behind I leave the past, the closer I am to forging my own character.” Isabelle Eberhardt
