    I think its like calling a sql batch program.
    For example:

    shell1.exe
    ---------
    sqlplus system/manager @batch1.sql
    exit

    batch1.sql
    ----------
    execute dbms.refresh_db('fast');
    exit

    I think u can not do the reverse...u may opt to use
    scheduler or crontab to call the shell script.

    Am i right davey or partly

    You can combine the shell script and the sql script into a single shell script. I assume in the example that oraenv is in /usr/local/bin. On some UNIX platforms it's located elsewhere

    PHP Code:
    #
    # Set up the oracle environment
    #
    export ORACLE_SID=TESTDB
    export ORAENV_ASK
    =NO
    export PATH
    =/usr/local/bin:$PATH
    #
    oraenv
    #
    sqlplus username/password <<EOF
    exec myprocedure
    ;
    exit
    EOF 
    To call a shell script from a stored procedure your looking at Java in the database on external procedures in C or similar.
