Oracle Job Scheduling

Chapter 2 - Configuring Oracle Job Scheduling

Job Classes

The parameters associated with this procedure and their usage are as follows:

  • job_class_name - A name that specifies a single or comma separated list of job class names.

  • force - When set to TRUE, all jobs that are assigned to the job class are disabled and have their job class set to the default.  When set to FALSE, attempting to drop a job class that has dependant jobs will cause an error.

The following code example shows how a job class can be removed

  DBMS_SCHEDULER.drop_job_class (
    job_class_name => 'test_job_class',
    force          => TRUE);

The output of the job_classes.sql script shows that the job class has been removed successfully.

SQL> @job_classes

Now that to the creation of job classes has been presented, the next section will cover windows, another type of scheduler administration object.
