A procedure is a group of PL/SQL statements that can be called by name. The call specification (sometimes called call spec) specifies a java method or a third-generation language routine so that it can be called from SQL and PL/SQL.
CREATE [OR REPLACE] PROCEDURE procedure_name [ (parameter [,parameter]) ] IS [declaration_section] BEGIN executable_section [EXCEPTION exception_section] END [procedure_name];
Following are the three types of procedures that must be defined to create a procedure.
In this example, we are going to insert record in the "user" table. So you need to create user table first.
create table user(id number(10) primary key,name varchar2(100));
Now write the procedure code to insert record in user table.
create or replace procedure "INSERTUSER" (id IN NUMBER, name IN VARCHAR2) is begin insert into user values(id,name); end; /
Let's see the code to call above created procedure.
BEGIN insertuser(101,'Rahul'); dbms_output.put_line('record inserted successfully'); END; /
Now, see the "USER" table, you will see one record is inserted.
DROP PROCEDURE procedure_name;
DROP PROCEDURE pro1;
