When developing pl/sql code for oracle applications you would like to start concurrent requests directly from a pl/sql package. To do so Oracle has provided the option to use fnd_request.submit_request. Fnd_requests is a package in the apps schema.
Please note the example below where we use fnd_request.submit_request to start the concurrent request OEOIMP.
v_request_id := fnd_request.submit_request('ONT','OEOIMP','Order Import','' ,FALSE,'','','','N','1','4','','','','Y','N',CHR(0));
IF v_request_id > 0
FND_FILE.PUT_LINE(FND_FILE.OUTPUT,'DEBUG, Successfully submitted');
FND_FILE.PUT_LINE(FND_FILE.OUTPUT,'DEBUG, Not Submitted');
The parameters needed to start submit_request are the following:
- Application (varchar2) (shortname of the application)
- Program (varchar2) (shortname of the concurrent request)
- Description (varchar2) (description of the concurrent request)
- Start_time (varchar2) (time to start, if null then immediate)
- Sub_request (Boolean) (is this a sub request true/false)
And you have argument1 until argument100. You could enter all the 100 arguments even if they are null or you could use after the last argument you need the following: ,CHR(0) By using this there will only by used the arguments you need and you do not have to fill up the number of arguments with null values.
To find out all the short descriptions of all the concurrent requests you can use this query:
