    Alerts

    Hi,
    In Oracle financial, Does Oracle Alerts part of the application OR part of the database?

    Can some one give me an example of the alert. Let's say I want to write a alert on one of my table when a new row inserted.

    Thanks.

    I Believe it's part of the applications suite, however you could create the type of alert you require with a trigger.

    On Forms, alerts are part of the form. You can customize them and make your own.

    declare btn_id as integer

    on some action (like when a button is pressed):
    change_alert_message('alert_type','Your alert message.');
    btn_id := show_alert('alert_type');
    IF-THEN-ELSE code under this to handle the action (button selected) by the user.

    triggers are always an option, though I would caution that you be aware of what it may or may not do to your app's upgrade path. Use a naming convention that separates your triggers from delivered triggers, and I recommend against altering delivered triggers unless it's absolutely necessary and documented to the teeth.

    edit - that is, if you're hammering on an app that was developed by someone else. If yer developing it nevermind
