    Hello Everyone,

    I am running a Powerbuilder 8 front end application, and I want to kick off a background thread/process that will run independently of my PB app.

    Is there a way to kick off the job, which will have parameters passed in, start a stored procedure of some kind which will basically read some tables and populate other tables.

    I do not want my PB app to wait for this job to complete at all. Just submit the job and go.

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Start it with DBMS_JOBS.

    I've never used DBMS_JOBS.

    Can someone give me an example of how this would be used from my Powerbuilder application?

    Thanks,

    P
